- 20 inch Wood Pallet Sign
- Chalky Paint (in your choice of colors however I used relic)
- Outdoor Varnish (I used the light satin)
- Galvanized Buckets with Burlap Labels (3)
- Decorative Knobs (3)
- Paint Brush
- Metal Hole Punch
- Drill, Drill Bit, Bolts & Nuts
- Sawtooth Hanger
- Metal Saw
- Number Stencil
You will want to add a few coats of paint to your sign to start and allow those to dry. I painted all surfaces (front and back) to protect the entire thing from the elements. After the paint has dried, add a few coats of the varnish to all surfaces as well. Allow everything to cure before continuing.
Add a hole to the back of each bucket with a metal hole punch like the Crop-a-dile. Add holes to your pallet sign for the knobs as well. Measure for location and equal distance then drill holes all the way through that are large enough for the threaded portion of the knob. Add holes above that set for your buckets. These will need to be large enough to accommodate the bolts you are going to use to secure the buckets.
I decided to add a stencil to the burlap on the buckets as well. I just used a marker and the larger stencil in the package. You can write whatever you would like on the buckets.
Use the bolts and nuts to secure the buckets to the top and add the knobs to the bottom of your garden tool organizer. You will also want to add a sawtooth hanger or two to the back.
Use a metal saw to trim any excess from the bolts in the back. The threaded portion of the knobs is long and will stick out too far so they will need to be trimmed.
Hang up your garden tool organizer and add in your supplies.
