Have you ever been over the top excited about a do it yourself project? Hmmm, maybe I should say a do it with your husband’s help project. You know, one of those where you have seen the idea around, so you think up your version of how you want it done, but look to him to do the majority of the work. Yeah, that kind of project. I truly wanted to do it, I had every bit of it planned out in my head. It just didn’t quite work out that way. He is better at these type projects. After months of planning (yes, I said months) and wanting this project to take place I am so very happy to say it finally did. And, I am even happier to say it was worth the wait.
Maybe you have seen those really cool looking rooms that have an accent wall with pallets. If you have, great! Here is a step by step tutorial on how you can create one yourself. If you haven’t seen any of those rooms or pictures of them, well – great! I get to be the first one to introduce you to the concept of Creating the Perfect Pallet Wall.
It is so neat to me how an ugly pallet can go from looking, well ugly and dirty, to turning out so neat and full of character on a wall. I was looking for the pieces that had the imperfections, not the pieces that were perfect. I wanted every board to have a flaw, as a reminder that no matter what life throws at us, we may have imperfections and flaws, but we are also full of character and it is in the flaws that help build our character. First, let’s start with the items you will need for this fun project.
