A while back one of my best bloggy buddies, Danni from Silo Hill Farm wrote a post about how she was challenging herself to come up with a project for a pallet she had. She gave herself a goal date of September first to have something done and posted.
I commented that I myself had a pallet (shown above) that I should figure out something for. Danni replied back and suggested that I join her on her pallet challenge. I excitedly accepted. I love a good challenge!
And so the Pinterest pallet project search began. There are so many super cool things to make and do out there! I searched and brainstormed for almost a whole month about what I should do and still couldn't come up with anything specific.
Eventually, I decided on a paint color and went from there.
I love things that have the rustic look, so I wanted my pallet to look old. I gave it one coat and then rubbed the whole things with a rag to take some of the paint off and give it that old paint look. You can still see some of the wood grain in it.
I used these brushed nickle hooks that I picked up a garage sale not long ago. Lined across the bottom of the pallet there is one hook for Mom, Dad, and the little guy to hang our towels on in the bathroom.
To attach the baskets, I used some wide head screws and went right through the basket material. I did this for each corner of both baskets.
It's a little plain but it's functional. It offers me some much needed storage and that is something you can never have too much of!
Make sure and stop over to Silo Hill Farm on September 1st to see Danni's pallet project too. She's so awesome, I can't wait to see what she came up with!
Thanks or reading! Have an excellent day!
