Pallet Potting Shed

6 Materials
10 Days

I needed a place to keep my seeds and gardening tools. We didn’t have a lot of money for the project. A friend offered us some larger pallets and that’s when it took off! We had to go with the flow. It was on a slope, we had no plans and we were trying to do it as cheap as possible!

These pallets are used to ship solar panels. That is why they are bigger.

We had to take 2 apart to make 1 so there were no gaps. Usually they have pallet screws but these were just nails and were easy to use a crow bar.

Husband built the foundation. We had to pay money at box store for this material.

      I did and it’s beautiful! I installed 4X4 posts 5’ apart and used 2X4’s to attach/nail the mix of pallet and old barn-wood. It’s very windy where I live and two years in so far so good.
