D.I.Y. pallet wall

pallets! 07.14.15
Figure out how many pallets needed for the size of the project and salvage them if you can. Clean and sand them slightly, then cut off the nails keeping the nail heads showing, which looked great! The wall this pallet were adhering to was a concrete wall, so first plywood wood was glued on and anchored to the wall.

Then stagger the planks on the floor to get an idea of how it was going to look once it was up on the wall. Then cut the end pieces with a chop saw, which is the best tool for this job. it will give nice straight cuts.

    Anna Ibarra I would first paint the drywall black first so as to create shadows if there is any shrinkage of the wood after its inside the house. In terms of attaching it to the wall I don't think its necessary to add plywood. I would use a nail gun.

    Boards can be "whitewashed" for a shabby chic effect!

    You did such an amazing job! What a wonderful idea! And, the shabby pillows definitely bring out the colors in the wood. I'm a huge supporter of accenting colors like you did. Very nice!
