Hey hey friends and happy Monday! Is everyone recovered from watching that crazy Super Bowl last night? Holy smokes that was a wild game. We had so much fun watching it, but I ate way too much. I’m definitely in a bit of a food hangover today–darn those delicious brownies. And the buffalo chicken dip. And the pizza. Yeah, I may have overdone it just a teensy bit. On the plus side it was all gluten free, but I know that doesn’t matter much when you’re going in for brownie number three. Oh well, life would be boring without a little splurging from time to time, right? I think so. Anyway, do you guys remember in last week’s post of our living room I shared a little peek of that cute DIY wooden wall planter? It was over by the fireplace hanging on the wall. I’m actually kind of obsessed with it and today I’m excited to be sharing the easy tutorial for it. It was super simple to put together and I think it’s perfect for holding a few purdy springtime flowers and faux greenery.
Okie dokie, here’s how I made it:
For for this project I used a pre-made wooden pallet–huge time saver! I found mine at Michael’s, but you can find these at just about any craft store. I’ve seen them at Hobby Lobby too. I used one of these pallets for my easy DIY Fall Sign last year, they’re just so handy. I usually try to grab a few when they’re on sale, so they’re super cheap too.
I wanted the pallet to have a rustic look, so I started off by spray painting it dark brown. Once that dried I painted it in One Horn White from the Magnolia Home paint line.
Next up I sanded the whole thing down to distress it and give it that rustic look. Easy peasy stuff.. Once that was complete it was time to attach the boxes to the pallet.
I found these wooden boxes at Michael’s and they fit perfectly on the pallet. But you could use just about any small wooden box for this project.
We found the best best way to attach the boxes to the pallet was by screwing them on from the back. It was a bit tricky to get the placement just right, but this was easier then screwing them on from the front side.
And there she be, all done!
This is such a fun project and I think it’s perfect for spring. I love the pop of faux greenery and color to warm up this space and bring a little life to the room. And I’m looking forward to switching out the goodies in these boxes as the seasons change throughout the year.
Well friends, I hope you enjoyed this post and give it a try. This was so easy to put together, especially using the pre-made wooden pallet. It’s a perfect afternoon project, which you know is my favorite kind of project!
