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!

Pallets loaded in the truck

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.

First pallets up. He used a lot of screws to attach and make sure it is sturdy.

2nd layer up. Looking like a shed now.

Roof on, caulked, primer and painted.

Shelves for container and garden tools.

Found this old cabinet. Perfect for storing all of my seeds.

Found some used bamboo flooring on Craigslist for free and installed it inside the shed.

      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.
