Rustic Pallet Potting Bench

Pallets and potting benches pair particularly, perfectly well together.  A little alliteration for you--but it is true!  This pallet wood was weathered, a lovely grey so I chose to work with that and make a more rustic looking bench.  
Although each potting bench I make is a little different, I always like to include a few of the same elements:  a bottom shelf,
hooks or places for gloves, tools,
something extra on the top/back such as a shelf or chalkboard. Here are a few of the recent signs I have painted on pallet pieces.
I did slap on a little paint and stain, but let the natural wood shine through.
The cross piece in the back helps make it a little more sturdy.
A great place to get all of those spring pots planted.


  1. Becky I love the potting bench! I like the simple design and you did a beautiful paint job! Nice work as usual!

  2. LOVE it too, and now you have me singing that song! Love the good day sunshine sign!


  3. Great job! Makes me ready to get outside and start playing.

  4. Adorable! And the size makes it easy to move right to the work area too!

  5. I know you use pallets for a lot of projects, are they hard to disassemble?

  6. Oh, Oh, Oh, I LOVE IT!!!!! This potting bench can be used in so many ways, as my brain went into overtime imagining all sorts of uses when I saw your post this morning. Thank you so very much for sharing!!! Blessings and smiles, Emilou :-)
