The Options: Pallet or Container

Pallet or Container

Option 1: Etsy | Option 2: Martha Stewart

So, confession time. I have such a black thumb (and disregard for gardening in general) that I didn’t even fix the toppled topiary planter on our front stoop before BHG came to visit.

Yeah. I need help.

I wish that I had the time and energy for gardening, but it’s just one of those things that keeps getting pushed to the back burner. But for those of you who do know a thing or two about keeping greenery green, today’s feature is for you.

Option 1: I adore this repurposed pallet planter. The pop of green from the herbs plays so nicely with the rustic aged wood of the pallets. If I had the itch to get gardening, this project would be at the top of my list.

Option 2: But then there’s the simple idea of terra-cotta pots and a Sharpie marker. It certainly doesn’t get much easier than that, and it really looks so quaint and cottage-y. Now I want to add this project to my fantasy gardening to-do list!

Is it just me or would the two be really cute together…? Cast your vote!

P.S. I’m over on GalTime today with a fun DIY placecard holder tutorial, perfect for summertime party planning. Enjoy!

    I just did a version of the pallet garden two weeks ago for a story. I would not suggest it if you have a black thumb. And, pallets are covered in toxins, so you can’t plant herbs in them (beware!).

        Totally! Yeah, I stumbled across some stuff about pesticides and toxins while researching the project. I planted annuals instead, because obviously I’m not going to eat them ha ha.

What do you think??
