5.) Pallet Gardening Table By Jenna Burger
Using wood for a gardening project is almost instinctive. The material blends nicely with its environment and gives it a rustic and natural feel, all of which Jenna Burger knew how to convey through her pallet DIY gardening table.
Jenna needed a spot for her gardening and potting, and we get her. How many times did we lose our trowel or crack a planter? When we don’t have a specific spot to store them, they end up scattered around.
The supplies include two same-size pallets, heavy-duty C-shaped screws, C-hooks, strap hinges, screws and some chain.
The process is extremely simple. You only need to install the C-shaped screws and C-hooks in the right positions and you’ll have a nice gardening table that you can install along any wall in your garden.
