My Mother-in-Law LOVES to Garden. About a month ago I went to a craft store with her and she saw a potting table and said how much she loved it. So of course I thought to myself I could totally make one of those for her. The best part is we built it out of old pallets and wood we had around our place, so it didn't cost us anything to build!
We had some old pallets and in the barn we have some old 2x4's that were worn to match the pallets. We started by pulling the boards off of the pallets.
Of course my little boy wanted to help, but mostly he just played with the hay in the barn that was underneath the pallets.
When we were building the frame with the old 2x4's one of them cracked. But that is what happens when you are dealing with old worn out wood. So as you can see we just counter sunk some holes and put some screws down in to hold it together.
This is what our side frames looked like.
Then we just used a Brad Nailer to tack the pallet boards on the bottom. We talked about putting a 2x4 across the bottom or something to sturdy it, but the pallet boards did a fine job of that.
We used the Brad Nailer to put on the rest of the pallet boards as well.
We built a little shelf across the back, and put pallet boards down the front and the sides to hide the framework.
