DIY Rustic Pallet Mantel

2 Materials
6 Hours

As long as I can remember, I wanted a mantle in my house. With this entryway remodel and some scrap wood (and hooks) I finally made that dream into a reality. Although this mantle isn't attached to a fireplace, it is attached to hooks that is SO needed in my entryway right about now. If you have some scrap wood (or not) this project is totally for you. Before we get started.. just a little fun fact: The pallet wood is the same wood I made my barn doors with! The 1x3 is also left over from the storage unit! haha. Don't let any wood go to waste, people!! Ok now, let's get started.
I cut down the wood and attached the pieces together. I have details on the cuts and measurements on the blog post linked below.
I attached the finished "under mantel" piece to the pallet wood I attached together.
I attached it to the wall (details on how i did this on my blog post) and added hooks.
Here's the final product!!! If you want DIY emails from me straight in your inbox, please sign up for my FREE email newsletter here:
