  • What a great combo of a pallet wall and entertainment center. It really looks seamless- no messy wires, just a rustic well-built piece of furniture. Awesome choice of stain color too- it has a weathered look that really compliments the pallet wood's character. Great work!

  • Amazing transformation! And thanks so much for including the link to the blog post. It was a real treat reading about the pallets evolution from a would-be tree fort to a beautifully crafted piece of furniture. The choice to let the natural character of the pallets to show through was really the way to go, too! This really looks amazing- no doubt it will sell very quickly if it hasn't already. Did you do the black and white bench seen in the trade show photo too?

    • Thanks so much for the great feedback, and for reading my blog post about this project. :) it was such a fun transformation, especially when I think about how I initially didn't want anything to do with the large piles of pallets!! And yep, I also made the black and white chevron bench in the photo. I just stated making 4 more yesterday!!! They are a hot item. Functional and beautiful!!!

  • This is so cool! What a perfect solution to integrate the lights into the headboard, and the industrial pipes are a really neat look. Great use of pallet wood, and great choice of stain too. Was the light wiring tricky to do?

  • Since i used a 2x4 frame on the back side it left plenty of room to run the wiring in the back. I used wire mounts to support them but never wired it to the wall (for portability). The wiring just goes to a wall plug with switch.

  • Awesome idea. The portability factor is a huge plus. Thanks for sharing!

  • This is exquisitely done! The pictures are beautiful too. Did you use the existing spatula to trace out a blank?
    By RYOBI Nation, on August 17, 2016

  • Thank you so much! I did use the original for a basic form. However, my wife and I had a few features that we wanted to be different from the original. So, once the basic shapes were cut on the band saw. Both the "paddle shape" of the spatula, and the curve for the spatulas scoop, I used a belt sander and hand sanded until the spatula reached the desired shape. I have a whole makers video showing the process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcw7wtq9CF8

  • Thanks for sharing the video! It was really cool to watch it take shape- especially after the band saw, how you take it from a rough cut out to a perfectly smooth and symmetrical finished product. Awesome work and great video!

  • Thank you. I'm glad that you enjoyed both my work on the spatula, and in the video!

  • Another spectacular turn out! Barn doors add some much style to just about any space. The final finish really does look great- so rich! Did the per-conditioner make staining easier in general?

  • This looks awesome! You created quite a chicken paradise! The colors are so cheerful- just right for your happy chickens. Did you design this whole thing yourself?

  • Sounds like you really tapped into your DIY skills to work around a tricky situation! How resourceful that you re-used the portion you cut out to make the gate! Awesome work.
