- Pallet Cabinets & Pallet Wardrobes -
For years this corner of my house has been the drop zone for everyone's hoodies and shoes. Not anymore. I spent less than 5 hours and less than $20 building this storage cabinet out of pallets. I used my original walls to attach the cabinet and save on wood. The top is a salvaged piece from a bar top than was previously in my dining room and had been torn down to reclaim that space for another use. I used the 2x4s from the pallets to frame the cabinet, and all the other is red oak wood pulled from the pallets. It was lightly sanded after being built and then painted sapphire blue. I used a small amount of petroleum jelly on a paint brush where I wanted that blue to shine through most and then applied a white paint over the top. I then used a rough grade sandpaper to sand the whole piece down and bring out more of that sapphire. I really enjoy not walking by this space now and not seeing everyone's shoes and hoodies all crammed up in this corner.
