I'm sure, by now, you've all seen millions of images of pallet creations. Well, I jumped on the pallet bandwagon and coerced my husband to make us a planter/bench for our side patio. Sure do wish I had pictures of the process, but I don't. You'll have to use your imagination. First, picture a blank space. Next, picture a wooden pallet. Now, see my husband pulling it apart, cutting and nailing it into this wonderfulness...
That's right...$2.00! This mixture of plants was marked down from $12.95. Best of all, the hard work was already done. I didn't have to decide what to plant, they did it for me! I snatched 3 of these beauties and completed my project for a total of 6 whole buck-a-roos.
Let's take a gander at the finished product.
Much better, right? I love the freshness and the colors it brings into the space. My kids came home from school and immediately went outside to eat their snack. Who doesn't enjoy pretty plantings?
I'll leave you with a few more pics.
