Pallet Planter Boxes Started April 2, 2014

Filed under: Adventures in Project Land — Colli @ 9:10 am

I have seen a lot of blogs and articles online about reusing pallets for many things. One that I like was using them to make planter boxes. Reusing and recycling things it one thing that I love to do! The project stayed on my mind for a few weeks so I decided to give it a try.

First step was to collect pallets to use. At first I thought that it was going to take me forever to find the pallets needed to make the bed for the garden but I got lucky. The place we bought our firewood from has a stack and they were giving them away.

On Saturday, I loaded the truck full of them and went home to get started.

The next step was to detach all the wood. Removing all screws, nails and staples from the wood strips. At first I started pulling them all apart using a hammer. Then when I realized I was exhausted after one pallet I was forced to rethink my strategy. I asked Ash to come out and cut the ends off the pallets. This made it a bit easier because I just needed to detach the wood from the center. After two days of working on this project I have taken three apart. It is not as easy as it looked. Oh well… I will do a little at a time.
