This is so cool!!! I am definitely gonna have one of these next spring...maybe this summer after DH builds the trellises -- ha! I'm sure he likes to build things and if it's thrifty and cheap, he likes it even more.

Wow! I really like that. And I have four odd-sized pallets just waiting for something to be done to them. Ah heck. Another garden project waiting in the wings. This really is addictive.

Great idea, but I would recommend more nails in the side boards.

I think I can get a couple pallets, too!

Post  pattipan Thu Apr 29, 2010 7:49 pm

The only thing DH had to buy was the screws to attach the legs...which are leftover 2" x 4"s from another project. I quickly plopped some things on it for a photo. What a back saver this is going to be for me! Eventually it will go against the house under the eaves, but we have to move a bush first.

That's really cool! Very Happy My dad built a table for our shed out of a door he salvaged at the dump. It's one of those sturdy metal ones, so it makes a great table!

I thought since everyone is out there scrounging pallets for compost bins, I would grave dig this post in case anyone could get an extra pallet and needed one of these. Smile

It has been such a back saver for me!! We actually left it where you see it and it was outside all winter. The top warped a little, but it's good for another year or two. And those narrow "shelves" are perfect for the greenhouse flats! One thing you'll want to invest in is a whisk broom. Any overflows of Mel's Mix get swept right back into the bucket. Very Happy

When you posted this originally Pattipan I showed hubby hoping he would build me one. But he is a "woodworker" and he does not get the charm in it that I see and love. He took an old desk and make me a work area in the sun room, and it's lovely don't get me wrong, but it wasn't this cute little thing.

If I asked him to build me something normally he would be right on it....but this, he just looks at me funny. I may have to do it myself. LOL

I am sure glad to see this idea. Never in a million years would this have occurred to me as a use for pallets! I was thinking of making a potting bench, but (Like I usually do) I have been over thinking it WAY too much and was over designing the darn thing. This will be perfect for my needs!

Absolutely love this idea. I rescued 2 pallets from my neighbors trash last year but did not really know what I would do with them. Now I know!

My "new" potting bench! bounce My husband was able to get the pallets from work for free. I went and bought a couple of 2x4's, cut them down to size and put it together. I made the back higher because eventually I want to add a couple little shelves.

Thanks everyone Smile My husband works for the automotive industry. They ship rolls of rubber on these pallets for the water shield in the vehicle doors. I used this same type of pallet to make our compost bins last year.

Thank you. I'll check around. I use pallets for my compost bins too and I have to try to keep the compost away from the sides so it doesn't get in the wood where I can't get to it.
