Through Pinterest, I've developed a fascination with pallets. The best thing is, you can find them a lot of places, plus it's reusing old wood that would probably be sent to the dump or burnpile. My first project was this pallet turned shelf/wall hanging:
This filled a space in my kitchen by my table that I have racked my brain trying to fill. I love it because it's so unique and houses all my pictures in a great way. Every person that walks into my house remarks how cool it is.
Then, we made this outside pallet table for our patio redo:
It's perfect because it's on wheels and we can just roll it everywhere! Plus, it matches our great Adirondak chairs.
This weekend I was making a pallet shelf for someone who just loved mine and we had to do some fancy cutting to make it work. I saw the beginnings of another great project! All I had to do was attach a board across the front to hold in the bottles and voila (!) a pallet wine shelf to hang on the wall.
I really liked the color of this wood and didn't really want to stain it. But, it needed something. So, I grabbed my Paris Blue ASCP and watered it down. I then lightly painted around it to give it that perfect beachy look. I was going to paint the whole thing but as I was painting decided to leave the back part the original wood. It just looks so beachy rustic. Is that a design style?
So, here it is:
I didn't hang it. I actually have no wall space for this, but couldn't resist making it! Surely, I will find someone who loves it!
It's pretty large, could probably handle about 8 bottles of wine. This is so cool...I need to go find some wall space, NOW!
