DIY - Pallet Hallway Tree

$30
12 Hours
Medium

Finally found a use for the old pallets I collected over a year ago. This entry way piece cost us about $30 to make, and makes a huge impact. What a fun project!

    Such a super job! I see that one of the boards in your posts was a bit wavy? But just wandered if it's best not to use them. Did you end up using it? Hard to tell if you did. Just an awesome job.

      We ended up using it as the top board and worked the wave into the design. But if you're looking to make it completely flat, I would avoid using it or seeing if you can cut it in a way to make it usable.

    This is "one" of the best projects I've ever seen on Hometalk. I really want to try this project. I especially love the curvy board at the top!
