Entry Way Pallet Wood

I don’t technically have an “entryway” but there is a wall you see right when you walk in the front door… so I am going to go with that : )

I shared my fabric lined drawers for this dresser HERE, so you might remember that.

Pallet Wood Decor MAIN

I actually drug this pallet wood across the country. My husband wanted to just throw it away in Texas, but we had already cut it and everything…it was coming with us one way or another!

It was pretty easy to make. My original plan was to just pry the pallet boards off of the pallet, but these are pretty weathered and it was just splitting the wood when I tried, so my husband just took a saw to it for me : )

Then I stopped over at Menards (it’s kind of like a Lowe’s here) and had them cut a 1×4 for me. to hold it all together.

Steps

I just used regular wood screws to attach the 1×4’s to the back of the pallet wood. I chose to leave a little bit of the 1x4s exposed at the bottom since I was just planning on leaning this against the wall on my dresser and not actually hanging it. It helps it to not slide and picks it up off the dresser just a hair. Not sure if this was worth it or not but it seemed like a good idea ; )

A little change
So after I typed up this post I decided to rotate it so that the wood was vertical… so the wood sticking out the bottom only really applies if that is the part that will be against the dresser. This is what it looked like before I rotated it.

What do you think? I liked it better vertical, but maybe I should put it back?

Aubrey helped me drill the screws in but he was really more interested in fighting the “bad guys” with his stick. Crazy little boys! Stewart was enjoying it outside with us though… that’s my dog in the background.

Since I don’t have a fireplace I have a feeling I will be changing the look of this quite a bit. This isn’t what I had originally had planned for my pallet wood, but I have to start putting all my stuff somewhere and I am dying to decorate so this is what I had available to use.

    My vote is do not change it :) I love everything about this look! I have a couple of pallets out back and you have given me the inspiration to make "something" with them.
    P.s. seeing your little one reminds me of when my sons were that age! Give them a stick or a rock and they could be amused for hours :)

    This looks great! I have been trying for almost a year to figure out what to do with my pallet, but I never thought of just using it as a backdrop for my projects. Thank you for sharing this and I saw you at Your Whims Wednesday. I like your blog and I'm taking you up on your offer to sit with a cup of coffee and browse it. I'll be checking you out in the morning, with a cup of my favorite blend.

    Looks amazing. I am surprised at how different it looks by just changing to direction of the pallet. I definitely like the vertical look better. Adds height. Beautiful job.

    As usual I can't decide! This is one of my biggest DIY problems…indecision! I love the uneven sides with it horizontal, but the vertical streamlines it…just do what YOU like, cause' I am totally useless to help…Whichever, it is beautiful!

    I love the pallet either way, and I think the idea to dress it up like you would a fireplace mantel is great. You'll feel like you have something new to look at every season!
