Ryan and I have spent a lot of time and money this past year redesigning our backyard. It's still a work in progress, but completing little DIY projects one at a time gives me enough fuel to keep going. All I can say is that we are starting love being outside more and more, and this little garden wall is my favorite spot right now.
After sanding the pallets, staining them with a clear water-proof stain and mounting them on the stucco wall we fastened metal brackets that you can find at your local Home Depot. I bought 14 small metal pots from Ikea so that the metal bracket would blend in a bit more.
Trader Joe's has the most affordable plants. So, I bought some herbs ($2.49) and some mini roses ($1.99) to put in the pots.
Now we're ready for spring and the next DIY project. I'm thinking it will be a picnic table of some sort.
