YOU WILL NEED:

 Clean Pallet –Sandpaper for any rough edges if needed + a pair of gloves.

Hammer and a few 2.5cm (1 inch) nails.

2-3 extra timber palings from another pallet for shelves (cut to size if needed).

Drill (optional and easier for pre-drilling holes if you have one but you can use the hammer instead) and a screwdriver.

Non-toxic paint in your colour choice (preferably enviro-friendly low-VOC) or timber stain and a medium sized paint brush.

(Optional) depending on your situation, you may also want 2 steel star pickets or stakes and 4 screws (2 for each side) to support the pallet vertically either end.

Patience (that’s for the painting part!!) or rope your kids or significant others in to help – it took about 1 hr to paint one coat on both sides for a good finish.

Glass of bubbles to celebrate your achievement!!
