I have discovered pallets, and have become a little obsessed! I drive around in search of them, I make my hubs dumpster dive for them, and now I'm officially a hoarder of them. Not sure exactly what or how I'll ever use them all, but this is what I started with!
My shelves! I have a wall in the boy's "playroom" that has bothered me since the day we moved in. Just never looked right.
So this is what the pallet I started with looked like before I transformed it:
And this is what I ended up with after I sawed, hammered, painted, sanded, and glazed
I was able to make 4 shelves out of the pallet. One problem I ran into was when I went to decorate it, realized that there was no actual "shelf" in which items could be placed on. My intention for these shelves were to hold pictures, so I used easels to hold them, and it worked perfectly, and looks pretty cute too!
My wall, however, was still missing something! So I grabbed another pallet and tore this one completely apart for this next project:
So this is the final "Wall" that I can now say no longer bothers me! YAY!
