How to Turn a Pallet into a Garden

Yesterday I wandered out into the backyard and created a flower box. I still had a few daffodils left over and wanted to get them planted asap, but was out of containers.

I did however have an old wooden pallet that was headed for the burn pile.

So after the game was over, I had the Handsome Husband break out his skill saw and chop it up for me.

The HH cut the pallet just above the 2 slat mark, and then knocked off 2 boards from another {unusable} part of the pallet.

Here you can see the flower box starting to take form.

I nailed 1 board to the bottom of the planter, and another to the top, and then stuffed the wooden pallet planter with soil and bulbs.

Hopefully in a few months this thing will be bursting will flower power.

Pretty cool eh? I love free stuff!

  1. http://sproutsavvy.com/home/build-a-living-wall-and-repurpose-a-pallet-for-a-planter/ My sister is using untreated pallets this year for a living wall outside. I believe she’s planting herbs in it. Amazing what one can do with a pallet other then the go carts the boys made back in the day.

  2. Cold day, Mavis?
    Am I wrong or are you wearing a blanket skirt over your jeans?
    Very resourceful, indeed!

  3. OMG, Iw as gonna ask what you are wearing….ha, ha…..thought it was your HH shoes….my hubby’s shoes are 5 sizes too big for me…

  4. I have a pallet garden as well and getting ready to plant another one. I like the flower box though. I planted the pallet to make it a vertical garden, but even with the help of a male friend, lifting it was impossible. Unless I can track down the Incredible Hulk.

  5. Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! I have three pallets outside RIGHT NOW *patter of not-so-tiny feet and back door slams*
