Working with The Home Depot on the outdoor and gardening campaign has been fun, and for my last post I am going to be using those wonderful herbs I purchased last week on my shopping spree.

I have always wanted to make an herb garden, but with a small yard, 4 children, and 2 dogs, there is not much room left for an herb garden, or any garden for that matter. That was an issue until I came upon the wonderful pallet garden on Pinterest a few weeks ago.

How to Make a Pallet Herb Garden

Working with The Home Depot on the outdoor and gardening campaign has been fun, and for my last post I am going to be using those wonderful herbs I purchased last week on my shopping spree.

I have always wanted to make an herb garden, but with a small yard, 4 children, and 2 dogs, there is not much room left for an herb garden or any garden for that matter. That was an issue until I came upon the wonderful pallet garden on Pinterest a few weeks ago.

I was excited to find that Pinterest picture, because just a few short weeks ago when we had sod delivered, they delivered it on 3 pallets! The only problem, those pallets were in very bad shape. These were the saddest and most beat up pallets I have ever seen. I sorted them out and decided on a pallet I wanted to use.

Pallet with bad boards removed

Once I removed all of the broken and rotten boards, I was basically left with a frame, and still a very sad looking frame at that.

To get back what I needed for my herb garden, I cut a three 1 x 4 boards I had laying around from a previous project.

I then broke out my Kreg jig. This is an amazing piece of equipment, and I can’t imagine life without my Kreg.

After creating the pocket holes, I went ahead and simply attached them to my pallet.

Pallet After Adding Shleves

After adding the shelves, it was then time to add the facing to hide the shelves.

The other thing you might notice in this picture is the feet I added to the pallet. I didn’t want to lean this up against a wall, and I happened to have some small angled boards leftover from a previous project that I made the wrong angled cuts on. I saved those wrong angled boards and was able to use them here!

I grabbed my trusty clamp and began attaching!

Here is another great picture of the pallet from behind. I have the shelves leaning back slightly so any water can easily run off and not accumulate.

After I finished here, I then grabbed some paint and gave this pallet some “pretty”. The color is actually a small sample bottle I had on hand called Appletini by Valspar.

Painted Pallet

After I painted my pallet, I went back and gathered those beautiful herbs I selected at The Home Depot Garden Center. I could tell that they were also excited to have a new home besides my front patio.

I grabbed my new garden hand tools I picked up at the Garden Center of Home Depot and put my pretty herbs in their pots. The neat thing is they have a wrapping you keep on them and it disintegrates over time. As I placed them into the new herb garden pallet, something just didn’t look “finished” to me.

I decided I needed to dress things up a bit, so I grabbed my computer, cranked up the Silhouette cutting machine, and created some labels on vinyl.

I then attached the vinyl labels to my pallet.

Now she looks pretty! I think the labels added a nice little touch. Here it is all finished!

I am so excited to finally have my very own herb garden, and I feel good about upcycling that poor pallet into such a pretty piece. What a perfect post for today, it is Earth Day after all.

We love to cook around here, so I can imagine I will be making an additional garden pallet to add some peppers into. What do you think?

It’s definitely a big change from that plain pallet, and I know we will get a lot of use out of our new herb garden.
