  • To survive a 2 year old for hours... must be built like a rock.

  • What a treasure! (ha!) Really, this will be something your grandson will value for years. A beautifully crafted keepsake.

  • This is a copy-worthy idea! There has to be a ton of parents with just these same materials and no idea what to do with them. The finish you chose gives the desk and the chair a very high-quality look. Did you do the shelf on the wall as well?
    By RYOBI Nation, on August 29, 2016
    • Thanks...no I didn't make the shelves, but I did try and match up the desk with them and the rest of the room...I originally was going to use old wooden baseball bats as the legs, but the bat I had turned out to be a valuable collectors item, a win win situation, lol.

  • Good thing you found out about their collector's status before you followed through! Baseball bat legs is a great idea though!

  • What a smart way to use older material! This turned out great. The finish looks really nice too. Is it a free standing piece, or is it anchored to the wall?

    • Thanks...I found the wood ladder in the garage left from the previous owner (14 feet), so I still have 2/3 of it left for future projects...but it's free standing, I padded the top so it won't scratch the walls, and put a rubber type pad on the bottom so it won't slip.

  • You wife made a good choice! This turned out great- not surprising at all that you ended up with a bunch of requests for this piece. The finish looks really good too. Beautiful work!

  • This is an amazing project. The level of detail is very impressive- the stain on the roof and stair case is an especially nice touch. The pallet wood looks beautiful! Did you have to do a lot of prep work to the pallet wood to get it ready?
    By RYOBI Nation, on August 29, 2016
    • Yes I did, It involved lots of cutting. I had to split the slats in order for them to be thin and not too heavy. That was probably 1 of the hardest parts, because not every slat wast the same thickness or width. The frame work was cut from the 2x4's lots of cutting there too. Down to 3/4". All of the small detail pcs like trim and stairs were very tasking, my saw blades were worn down by then.

  • What a creative idea! The sign look perfect with the rustic animal frames below it too. Did you already have those pieces, or did you make those too?
    By RYOBI Nation, on August 29, 2016
    • I made the picture frames from scrap wood I had from other projects! I found the free prints on pinterest and printed them off on burlap! Love the farmhouse/rustic feel it gives my kitchen!

  • This looks awesome! Way to put your skills to work and save some money at the same time. The finish looks great. Your materials list stain and spray paint- did you use a combination of these two to get this finish?
    By RYOBI Nation, on August 29, 2016
    • I did. After putting the pallets together, I sanded it down and stained it. I then applied vinyl stickers for the roman numerals and gave it a couple coats of white spray paint. My 2 year old loved helping me peel the stickers off. After that I just gave it a light sanding to give it a little distressed looked! This was my first time doing any type of not straight cuts, so not too bad!
      By jennifer.harding, on August 29, 2016

  • Oh, now it's clear! You peeled the stickers off after the spray paint so the numbers show that rich brown underneath! Truly awesome work! Thanks for sharing this with us.
