If you have limited space and funds, this painted pallet planter box is the perfect do-it-yourself project for you. The vertical planting saves space and the reused planter is a creative and feel-good way to up cycle an item commonly thrown into the dumpster, while saving money. You’re well on your way to an original pallet planter box, if you already have a pallet that is in relatively good condition and has had a heat-treated life, instead of a chemical existence.
You’ll only need a few more common materials and tools to make your space-saving pallet planter box a reality:
- nails (1 inch)
- timber palings (2-3)
- paint (you choose the color!) just make sure it is non-toxic
After you’ve gathered your materials and psyched yourself up for a meaningful home project you’re ready to make a painted pallet planter box. Read on at The Micro Gardener for complete instruction details as well as beautiful step-by-step photos.
