DIY Vertical Pallet Garden

by Diz26
Inspired by so many pallet gardens I've seen on the interwebs, I decided to give it a try myself when I stumbled upon this lucky find. Amazing what one can accomplish with a little leftover paint and some elbow grease!
Create your own Vertical Pallet Garden to usher in Spring.
I was lucky to find a healthy looking pallet on the side of the road, so I tossed it in the trunk and brought my newest treasure home.
I asked hubby to be a dear and rearrange and reinforce some of the slats on the back.
Hubby also nailed some 1"x4"s to the bottoms of the shelves. (Arrows indicate reinforcements) He nailed a 2"x4" to the very bottom for additional support. Then I lightly sanded it to remove splintered wood.
Painted it with old leftover paint from the trim of the house.
Used staple gun to staple black gardening plastic to the back and to line each shelf.
Looked for an inspiring gardening quote to stencil onto front.
This quote felt just right.
Filled up shelves with potting soil and planted my blooms. :)

    Great idea. I’m going to do this diy for my herbs and write (a taste for my pallet). Thanks you. Keep those ideas coming.😄

    Love this & it’s exactly what I need to hide my trash cans!! I have a pallet from a furniture delivery that I didn’t know what I was going to use it for (but we save it “for someday”😂)

    My questions- Did you caulk the shelves before painting? Did you drill drainage holes? thank you!
