Yellow Checked Pallet Box for Spring

The dear daughter came home from the movie the other day and hubby said, "I grabbed some pallets and took them apart for you while you were gone." Ah--music to my ears!

Having a pile of pallet boards ready to go makes creating so much easier. These are nice thick pallet boards.

I created a box/crate in about fifteen minutes--very easy construction. I cut three boards about 15" long and attached the long sides to the bottom board. I then measured and cut and attached the end pieces.

I painted the box yellow--I love yellow for spring and I am seeing a lot of it in clothing and decor. I stained over the yellow to darken and dirty it a little bit.

I then stenciled in white the buffalo checked stencil from Funky Junk Interiors Old Sign Stencils.  Checks and gingham scream spring to me so I decided the buffalo check stencil would be perfect. Some leather belt handles finished the box.

This box makes a great candle box for a centerpiece. I added some filler, a nest, and some eggs.  But it would also make a fun planter box, or would be cute in a bathroom to hold lotions and washcloths.

Where would you use it?


  1. Hi Becky,
    I love the color and checkerboard design on your planter box. Fifteen minutes...Wow! I think, like you, I'd use the box on the dining room table for the Easter season; then maybe in my craft room to hold supplies I want to keep close at hand. Great project!
    Happy Easter,

    1. Thank you! The box would definitely work well in a craft room.

  2. So pretty with the eggs and candlelight. What a sweet husband to prep boards for you! Once my husband brought home a solid built pallet for me, better than flowers, right?


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
