Now I think it's awesome that people are using pallet wood to create book shelves, or wall art, or chairs. I yell "Stop the truck!" when I see pallets by the side of the road. But Big A thinks pallet wood is crappy wood and simply can't see why I would want it in our home. Despite my protests, he hits the accelerator and guns it on by, leaving the perfectly good, and free, wood sitting by the road.
Clearly he doesn't share my vision, or spend enough time drooling over all of the creative blogs, DIY magazines, or Pinterest. So I'm posting these pictures for him, hopeful that he will change his mind.
These pallet shelves would be perfect in our living room. I would want to stain them a dark color because I think that would look nice with the colors in our house. I can also see using them in the bathroom to hold lotions and potions.
Or maybe something like this to hold photos, books or small house plants.
Imagine something like this in the kitchen holding olive oil or cool vintage bottles. (No, not cans of Monster.)
And I love pallet wood as wall art. This is gorgeous!
And I like this too. (Cuz I love you too).
And this made me think of you darlin' - isn't this funny and cute?
People even write books on pallets:
