I’m enjoying seeing the additions to their decor that Gloria and Georges are making to their new home. This DIY Wall Mounted Fruit and Veggie Holder looks great and it’s a practical way to keep fruits and vegetables on hand.
While neither Gloria nor I can lay claim to being useful with power tools, that’s not the case for Georges. He’s got several DIY furniture builds in the works and this wall mounted basket holder was the first of lots of projects that we’ll be sharing as he completes them.
Supplies Used for DIY Wall Mounted Fruit and Veggie Holder
- Pallet Wood
- Cup Hooks and Square Bend Hooks
- Metal Baskets
- Miter saw
Gloria and Georges recently went to a sale in their neighborhood for some neighbors that were having a moving sale. They were fortunate that the owners offered them some wood pallets for free-all they had to do was move them down the street a few houses to theirs. Using a miter saw, Georges disassembled the pallet.
After measuring the wall space, he cut pieces of the wood to size and placed them in a pattern that they liked. The wood pieces are screwed into cut pieces of 2x4s.
To mount the pieces of the 2x4s to the wall, large square bend hooks are screwed into the wall studs and the wood is nestled into them.
The metal baskets were purchased at a local liquidation store, but they can be found at most big box stores, too. They’re attached to the wood with cup hooks.
Using the three pieces cut from 2x4s as the wall mount worked well for this. They are heavy enough to hold the weight of the pallet wood. Leaving the wood natural adds to the farmhouse look of the piece.
I think it looks great in their kitchen and they keep it filled with colorful fruits and vegetables, giving a pop of color to the space.DIY Pallet Wood Wall Mounted Fruit & Veggies Holder for a farmhouse styled kitchen. #palletwoodproject #farmhousedecor #diyfruitandveggiesholder Click To Tweet

Please note: If the pallet wood is older than 2005, it could have been treated with methyl bromide and could have the marking MB on it. While some experts say that the danger dissipates in open air, others say it shouldn’t be used for projects like this or for a garden. MB hasn’t been used since 2005 in the US. It’s now heat treated and could have the marking HT on it and it should be safe to use. This is information I have gathered on line. Use caution if you work with pallet wood is my advice.
