- Wash or hose the wooden pallet down with water and let dry. If it's muddy, you may have to use some soap to get it thoroughly clean.
- After it's fully dry, you can start to paint. I used an outdoor paint/ stain for this project seeing as it will be left outside all year round.
- Apply a liberal coat of paint and let dry. I usually wait 4+ hours between coats of paint. Since this color orange is quite bright, it took 3 coats of paint before it completely covered all of the wood.
- After the paint dried, I used a clear coat varnish for durability.
- I had bought some vintage door knobs at an antique market some time ago. I picked out 4 and sprayed a clear varnish on each of them so they would not rust. I let these dry for a few days.

- Using a measuring tape and pencil, I marked out the spot in which to drill the holes for the door knobs. Measure twice, drill once!
- The door knobs had larger screws on the back, so once put into place, I also added a nut at the back to secure it.
- When all 4 holes were drilled and all knobs were on, it was time to bring it to the back fence to secure into place.
- Using a level on top of the pallet and some long thick screws, my husband and I secured the pallet to the fence.
Once secured into place on the fence, it was time that I found a home for the pool noodles and our life jackets.
