A Pallet Box Of Pretty Pansies...

Here is a super easy way to pretty up an outdoor table.
Whip up a pallet box.
Paint it.
Attach some plaited rope handle accents.
Upcycle some plastic pots
By spray painting in the colour of your choice.
 Then pop into the painted pots some pretty pansies.
Just the look I adore...
and a little bit pretty!
To make the box you, will need to cut the pallet wood into the following lengths:

Base = 2 x wood lengths at 400mm
Sides = 2 x wood lengths at 395mm
Ends = 2 x wood lengths at 175mm
(to convert to inches use an online measurement calculator)

It is a basic build:
Nail one side to each base piece.
Nail the ends in place attaching to side wood
Then nail the base pieces to the end pieces to hold it in shape.
Plait some rope to create a handle for each end.
Staple gun in place.
I haven't ever made a box before and it was simple to do.  

Fabulous for the covered deck mosaic table!


  1. That is a really sweet, rustic planter box. It turned out great!

  2. Tracey, this is such a lovely idea! I think I'll use it for my porch. We just re-sided our house and updated our porch with some beautiful railing this would be a perfect addition to my new table set. I love the rustic look too! Thanks for sharing at #SimplifyWednesdays Pinning & Tweeting
