Pallets can be reconfigured in numerous different ways, depending on what you’re trying to build. Let’s say you want to make a bed frame for the bedroom. Stack the pallets one on top of the other and secure them. You can also make nightstands to match the bed frame. By using two stacked pallets you also create useful storage compartments for the bed.

Depending on the size of the bed and on the style you prefer, you’ll have to use two or more pallets. You can decide the dimensions of the frame yourself and you can have built-in nightstands or seats. You can also include storage in your design. Most often, pallets are left as such but you can paint the wood if you want it to look more modern or to match the rest of the room’s décor.
Bed framed aren’t the only things you can make using pallets. You can even include them into your living room’s décor if you make a frame for the sofa or for the sectional and, while you’re at it, you might as well make a built-in side table too.

What plants grow well in vertical pallet gardens?
Once you’ve built your pretty new pallet garden, you’ll want to fill it with plants! Growing succulents is, of course, a great choice. Their shallow roots are ideal for the compact space in a pallet garden. Trailing flowers like petunias, alyssum, million bells, or lobelia all look fantastic as well. You actually have lots of options when it comes to flowers. Just be sure to check that your garden gets the right amount of sun for the plants you choose!
If you want to plant vegetables, avoid things like potatoes, carrots, or onions. Root vegetables (as their name suggests!) need deep soil in order to fully develop, and that just isn’t possible with this type of garden. However, vining vegetables like cucumbers, peas, or green beans can all do well. Lettuce, kale, and scallions are also great choices.
Of course, herbs also do very well in gardens like these! Plant rosemary, thyme, sage, and anything else your kitchen is missing.
