Elementary School Classroom Pallet Potting Bench

  • 2 pallets

  • medium

  • n/a

  • $30

My sister needed a kid-sized potting bench for her classroom, so I mad this Classroom Pallet Potting Bench for her using pieces from two pallets.

I found two pallets and broke them down to get the pieces I needed for this child's potting bench. Additionally, I ordered some liquid pigments online that I mixed with polyurethane for the finishes you see. I finished the piece off by applying a plain finish for the top and bottom shelf and a blue metallic one for the other pieces.

Materials Needed:

  • Copper pipe piece I had found in a dumpster at a nearby construction site.
  • Wheels I had leftover from something many years ago.
  • One left-over curtain rod piece that I installed at one end and bolted it in really tightly.
  • The penny was something I decided to add at the very end to give the piece something interesting to the front of it that her kids may like. I bored into the wood just a tad with a spade bit and then glued in the penny.
  • Two long bolts to hold the handle to the base (about 6" in length).

Fun idea! For more inspiration, look at this Potting Table idea.
