In desperate need of a shoe storage solution by our garage entry, my hubby and I set out to test our pallet wood skills. We had been collecting hardwood pallets and finally found the project to use it on.....
Time: 8 Hours Difficulty: Medium
We found a bench pattern on AnaWhite (SpaBench) and loosely adapted it to the length we needed and the narrow pieces of pallet timber we were using.
Pile of scrap hardwood pallet pieces = indestructible bench for our mountains of shoes!
To finish the bench we sanded it to remove most of the sliver prone roughness but not so much as to remove all the texture. The we tinted the wood by using a diluted tinted stain & multiple coats of Matte water-based poly. Baskets were purchased from a local craft store.
