This year I am sharing 2013’s most read and shared posts, and this one is surely the first post that went viral, for How to Make an Herb Garden from a Pallet.
This is the project that I made in a few short hours with my old torn up pallet, a Kreg jig, drill, and some paint! The transformation was amazing, and if you have an old pallet around, I would whole heartedly tell you to give this project a try.
Make an Herb Garden from a Pallet
To get started, you will need a pallet, preferably one that is in a bit of better shape this this one.
Since my pallet was in such bad shape, I had to strip it completely, keeping the frame only. I then added a few cut boards to replace the ones that were rotting or broken.
I took my precut and measured boards and began adding them back to the pallet, but in the area I needed them for me Herb Garden.
After adding my shelves, I added the facing to make it look a bit cleaner, and to have a place to put my labels.
All of this was done within a couple of hours. It really did not take long at all. You can see in the picture above I also added feet to the pallet to make it vertical and free standing. This was an important feature for me.
Once I had the shelves and facing finished, I then added a nice coat of paint that I picked up at the local hardware store.
After the pallet was painted, I realized that it was just a little too plain. I wanted to make sure all of my herbs were labeled and visible for anyone who was going to be picking herbs.
To easily do this, I used my vinyl cutting machine and added some labels.
Once I finished with the labels, it was time to add my herbs and display the finished product.
I was so happy with the final result of this project. If you want to give this a try, you can find the original article here.
