How I Made a Pallet Storage Area

3 Materials
2 Hours

I wanted to make something that would hold my small and medium garden tools plus my watering cans. I have a slight obsession with watering cans I love the old ones or unique shaped ones. I decided I would repurpose a part of a pallet. I only needed it to be slightly smaller that my garden tools for cutting and snipping. But I wanted it to look cute.

I cut the pallet down to size. this did require me to pull out some nails and a board behind. No small feat for a pallet. they have those things nailed on good!

I used an old picket fence board we had to nail to the bottom. I wanted it to overhang a little in the front. I want to drill holes in that ledge to put some S hooks in to hang my small garden tools. Like my small nippers and small antique shears.

This picture proves it doesn’t have to be new wood I use what we have around here most of the time. I love to repurpose all kinds of items. You can see something repurposed here for my garden.

After we cut the bottom board and nailed it on I painted it all white.

And then my creative mind took over lol. I couldn’t just leave it plain and so I decided to paint some garden words on it.

Then it was time to add the hooks. I will be sliding my garden tools inside the top. Because remember we added a bottom piece to hold them in. I wanted hooks to hold the watering cans.

Here it is all hung up. I really like it and it looks cute.

I love how it turned out. Plus it added a little something to the front of the barn.

Thank you for stopping by!! And God Bless!
