WHY DO IT? Old weathered timber can look great when given a new lease on life and it’s a great thrifty cheap option.
For the box:
- Source an old pine palette
- 2” x 1” pine for the end uprights
- Stanley knife
- Spray pain
1. Remove pine slats from pallets
2. Cut long pieces to length at 500 mm
3. Cut short end pieces at 290 mm long
4. Cut the four uprights at 190 mm high
5. Build ends of the boxes
6. Join the two ends with base pieces
7. Nail on sides of boxes. Three or four slats
- Be careful not to split the pine when removing from palette
- Pre-drill nail holes to reduce splitting
