I have wanted to add character to our Kitchen forever! It a basic layout with an abundance of orange oak cabinets. So the first step was to add a pallet wall. I LOVE the way it turned out....now on to those cabinets. )

We painted the wall brown in case the boards didn't line up and the red would come blaring through.  We did have a few that were off....  Not many though.  I used 4 or 5 different stain colors and untreated pallet wood.

We laid them out in a random pattern that made sense as I had read on the internet.  But to be honest that went pretty quickly by the wayside due to room constraints.

    What type of stain did you use?

      I used a combo of stains I had left over from other projects. They were all oil based stains by Min Wax. The blues you see are actually grey stains without mixing up the pigment.

    Curious on a couple of aspects. You spent $50, what exactly on? Are the planks sanded at all? Are these just plain good old pallets that you can acquire for free? Also, were they nailed or screwed in? We live in an apartment that I am almost at my threshold of living with off white walls! Thank you!

      The money was spent on stain and nails. The pallets were free( unsanded) and we used a pneumatic nailer to attach them to the wall. For an apartment have you thought of removable wallpaper?

      It was a stain we had leftover from another project. It was a cherry stain that I did not stir well giving it a bit more pigment.
