The first project is the simplest of all. Basically you just take a pallet, sand it and then either stain it or paint it. Then comes the fun part: writing a message on the boards of the pallet. It can be any type of message you want. You can hang this piece on the entrance hallway or anywhere else you want.

Instead of writing on the boards, you can draw or paint something on them. But first take apart the pallet. Put the boards close together to form a canvas. Then feel free to use your creativity. The dandelion painting featured here is really lovely.

The project featured on Meganbrookehandmadeblog is also simple. After you take apart the pallet boards, clean them with distilled vinegar to obtain a gray color. You can then stain them with tea.

Of course, you don’t have to include the pallet boards in a colorful and sophisticated project in order to make them look great on your wall. You can just hang them on the wall at different heights and create a beautiful gallery display on which you can hang framed photos if you want. You can also just let them stand out by themselves without adding any other decorations and additional items to the mix.
