I did this cute little project for my flower garden, I used pallets only for the wood I nailed the structure together using penny nails that I had left over from another project I had done, you can use screws if you want probably would be better. I left it the natural color of the pallet which i think gives it character added stars that i already had red, white & blue also added some floral decor and a metal flag hanging on it. I am into Americana folk art myself .This was a simple project anyone can do it , I'm going to add a bench later when I get the time, maybe have a storage box bench. would be useful to keep some of my gardening tools in. I hope you like my project as much as I do. All the tools needed : Hammer, jig saw, and nails maybe some craft wire if you add some crafty items like i did.
