Pallet Fence: Re-purposing pallets

by CraftingStuff
This is a fence I made for my garden using pallets and old pickets from a fence that had been torn down. When I ran out of the old pickets, I used pallet boards and cut them to match the pickets so I could complete the project. My fenced area is 30' X 40' and I still had pallets left over for other projects.

The fence is being installed.
The garden gate was made from pallets too. The arbor was made from my childrens' old sandbox. We cut the large boards down to build the arbor.
The fence is almost finished.
Here is a picture taken from my bench at the back of the garden looking towards the arbor. The fence is complete. Now on to making the garden look pretty. This will take awhile.

    Sherry, I live in Hot local Michael's craft store has told me they put them in the back behind the store every week and I can just come by and get all I want when I see them laying back there. You might check your local area for a Michael's store.
