We’ve all been seeing so many things made with pallets lately and I love the fact that they’re free and that they can be saved from ending up in the landfill.
Just recently I found a print shop not far from my house that has a ton of free pallets, in all shapes and sizes.
I thought I would first try a pallet shelf, and because I wanted to add a little color to mine, I just thinned down acrylic craft paint with water. The more water you use, the more transparent the color will be, just like whitewashing wood only with a color. When it was good and dry I sanded down any rough areas which gave it a worn rustic look.
I love mine in turquoise, but I think these would look great any any color.
