Succulent stand using pallet timber

Succulent stand using pallet timber

Two Bunnings hanging baskets were joined together, and a stand was required. A pallet to the rescue. An ellipse was cut out, feet were added,  paint applied and it’s still standing after years. To protect from termites, sheet metal was added under the feet.  I’ve added some pictures previous to the one mounted in a pallet. It started off on the hills clothes hoist, then in a frame.

Re: Succulent stand using pallet timber

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Learner3. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for jumping into the conversation.

 

It's wonderful that you've found this project inspirational. Let me mention @Jamespeter100, so they are alerted to your kind comments.

 

Would you like to build something like this yourself? I trust with @Jamespeter100's, and the communities help you have it completed in no time. It appears to be based on a pallet, and we have them available to collect for free at your local store. This would make an excellent upcycling project that's not too difficult.

 

We look forward to hearing about all the projects and plans around your own home and garden and would encourage you to let us know if you ever need assistance or have something to share. I trust you'll find loads more inspirational projects to complete from within the community as our creative members contribute them here all the time.

I’ll upload details later, but for now, the paint that came from Bunnings, the colour is Noosa Views.

 I joined two baskets, joined. Used a thin piece of wood to hold the potting mix in, so it could be flipped over and put on the other. The thin wood then slid out. A hole in the top for refilling.

 Used a Bunnings compass to mark the shape to cut out.
