Two-tone Pallet Display Shelf Doubles As Bookshelf!

  • 2 pallets

  • medium

  • 4h

  • $30

I made this Two-tone Pallet Display Shelf using two pallets and pine shelves for only 30 dollars! The bookcase looks magnificent left natural, but I added a dark stain to the shelves for contrast. This project can double as a bookshelf, but be sure to anchor it to the wall to protect the kids!

Build a Pallet Display Shelf and make it two-tone - or not!

First, I stripped down wood from two pallets. This pallet had great support pieces to go along with the deck boards. I removed all the nails, planed and ripped the pieces to common dimensions on a table saw. Next, I arranged the design I wanted based on grain patterns. Then I used biscuits and a lot of clamps to glue the sides together. I used Pine for the shelves and joined them to the sides with a dado groove, glue, and small nails. Finally, I used a darker stain on the shelves since and Tung oil on the sides. Upcycle those old pallets into beautiful furniture pieces!

Build a Pallet Display Shelf and stain the horizontal pieces dark to add contrast and backdrop for your items.
This pallet display shelf is sturdy and attractive. I arranged the sides after cutting them to uniform widths. I mixed and matched wood tones and grains.
Pallet Display Shelf sides are highlighted with Tung oil.
The various tones and grains show up well with the application of Tung oil.
The Pallet Display is still natural; I haven't stained the horizontal pieces yet.

Pallet wood, as used in this Pallet Display Shelf, is attractive and economical. Mix and match tones and grains for maximum effect.
