Don’t Waste a Pallet!

This was my most recent project. I managed to get hold of an old delivery pallet and decided to use it as a display idea for my Hearts and Home items.

Firstly I sanded it down to get rid of all the rough edges to avoid splinters.

I then gave it a coat of paint in an “antique cream”. Just one coat and no fancy paint, just a cheap matt coloured paint.

I then fixed some little hooks (you could use nails) evenly across the panels of wood. It made a perfect display at a village fete that I did at the weekend.

Pallets have many more uses. They could be used as display shelving, you could even put it in your garden and plant flowers or veg in between the rows.

Let me know what you think, thanks for taking the time to read.
