Inspired by so many pallet gardens I’ve seen on the interwebs, I decided to give it a try myself when I stumbled upon this lucky find. Amazing what one can accomplish with a little leftover paint and some elbow grease!

I was lucky to find a healthy looking pallet on the side of the road, so I tossed it in the trunk and brought my newest treasure home.

I asked hubby to be a dear and rearrange and reinforce some of the slats on the back.

Hubby also nailed some 1″x4″s to the bottoms of the shelves. (Arrows indicate reinforcements) He nailed a 2″x4″ to the very bottom for additional support. Then I lightly sanded it to remove splintered wood.

Painted it with old leftover paint from the trim of the house.

Used staple gun to staple black gardening plastic to the back and to line each shelf.

Filled up shelves with potting soil and planted my blooms.
