Pallet Wall Room Transformation

Sandy diy 05.02.16
We started with a plain slate, tiny little bedroom and transformed it it with a major statement wall made from completely free pallets. We used a combination of white and grey paint to white wash each plank to cool down the warm wood tones. Adding industrial lighting and some fun DIYed accessories brought the whole room together!

    I just wanted to tell you that I loved this room so much that it inspired me to do my teenage son's office-in-a-closet with something very similar. I mentioned your post as my inspiration. This is awesome!

      Aj K - look on Craiglist under free - here in the Denver area there are daily postings for free pallets. You could probably even approach some businesses if you see pallets behind

    We did something like this with old fencing in a small bath. A cast iron tub, sink ; lots of old stuff, and plenty of antiques. we now have a bath that's charming. And totally green.

    I also did something similar for my son's room. I ripped the boards the same width. The challenge was finding the wood with the same or similar color and thickness then trying to remove all of the nails and screws without damaging the wood. My son loved

    A word of caution: We lived in a home with rough wood walls. The bugs loved to nest in the cracks, especially spiders.

      Meem Kaplan Thanks...We have regular paneling now but since we live in the woods we still have spiders. I'll try that. Would freshen the air too.

    I own a wedding / special events venue - We have pallet wood floors in our bathrooms, prep kitchen, rental room, and on some of the walls. They are hardwood and gorgeous.
