We have another post to share from DeDe from Designed Decor. She used some scrap wood pieces and our fabulous paint for this great little project!
I love a great recycle. I had some pallet wood pieces and baseboard trim stacked up in the garage and decided I needed to make a wall decor accent hanging with all the pieces parts.
I started by staining the pallet wood with a dark stain, applied Country Chic paint in tropical cocktail and backyard picnic to the pallet slates. I used my palm sander to get a shabby washed look on the pallet pieces.
I had to measure and cut the baseboard trim to fit around the pallet pieces. I used my table saw and cut each trim piece and nailed the frame together. I used a piece of plywood for the back of the pallet wall decor to give the piece stability. I applied wood glue and also nailed the plywood to the back. I sanded the frame trim pieces and applied Country Chic paint in vanilla frosting. Once the paint was dry, I hand sanded to get the distressed look on the frame.
I like how the piece looked above but wanted to make the piece functional and added coat hooks to the wall decor. I staggered the hooks on each slate to give it a different look. You can use this pallet wall decor to hang jewelry, hats or just keep it as an accent wall hanging.
