Lately, I have seen a trend where people are using wooden pallets as wall art. I have seen people use them to hang pictures on. I have seen objects or words painted on them. I have even seen them used as furniture, which reminds me of when I used to sleep on a futon in college.
The wall area above our couch is fairly large and in desperate need of something. I would like to have a pallet with writing on it, an inspiration saying or multiple phrases. I saw some examples in One Kings Lane and Pottery Barn. What do you think about this one from One Kings Lane, I like it.
We were able to recreate the one above with some 1x2's and wood shims. My bf put most of this together for me. I attempted to use the nail gun again. In the past, I have not had much luck with the nail gun. I get more nails popping out in different directions than straight. Given this was suppose to have a rustic look, it worked out. I stained it a dark walnut color because I already had some that I have used in other projects. Also, I switched the direction because I think it will work better in our space if it was horizontal.
So here is my home made wooden pallet. Now if I can just get some inspiration.
