Our house only has a stoop for the front door...wanted a little seating area. Created a seating area under a newly created window box.
Pallets & Old Wood - Bringing New Life to a Boring Spot in the Yard
I have wanted a window box for a long time. My husband build a 9 foot window box using an old wood from a deck that we took down.
The metal here was used to trim the window box - came from an old building.
Attached the metal to the box. But the area below needed some help. Removed a 40+ year old rose bush and LOTS of weeds.
We got a new bed and it came on this HEAVY duty pallet. I mean HEAVY. Decided this was the perfect venue to create a little seating area. I stained the pallet with some stuff left over from another project and then sealed it well.
Finished product.....we removed as much rock as we could, leveled the ground (thankful for my hubby) and then put down 6 pavers so pallet would not sit on the ground. Found two old whiskey barrels in the shed and planted natural grasses in them. An old bench got a spray of black paint and screws were tightened. Added flowers to the window box and dollar tree solar lights. Found the fat budda and pillow at Family dollar. Love my Peacock solar light from Bed Bath and Beyond.
