Take a look at my collection of inspiring indoor and outdoor pallet projects that cost virtually nothing to create but add lots of pizzazz to any home or garden.

Using Pallets for Gardening

For a simple pallet ideas for the garden, paint a pallet in the color of your preference and add some hooks. The result, a very interesting and stylish outdoor garden and yard tool storage rack.
