Pinterest is full of awesome ideas for using wood pallets. I had never really heard of wood pallets before I started looking at Pinterest. Or maybe I had and just not payed attention. Anyway, ever since coming across these great ideas on Pinterest, I’ve been wanting to make something out of wood pallets for a while now. Where do people get wood pallets? I had no idea. I asked my friend whose husband is a contractor and he brought 3 wood pallets over that were in really good shape. Once I had the pallets, I had to figure out what to make.
I’ve been wanting to put shelves up in our living room, so I thought we could try and make pallet shelves. And if they didn’t come out good, we could just buy them. So I recruited my husband to help me make shelves from wood pallets. I shouldn’t say, “to help me” . He did all the work!
First, my husband used a hammer to take apart the pallets.
My husband said he really enjoyed making these pallet shelves. I told him that is why I make all the hair bows and headbands I do. It’s fun to take the challenge to create things yourself and then see how they come out. I like the rewarding feeling I get of accomplishment and competency. What about you? Have you tried making anything from wood pallets? If you haven’t, you should try it. It’s a lot of fun!
Feel free to ask any questions about how these were made.
