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.

  1. 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*
