D.I.Y. Decor: Recycled Wood Pallet Shelf

I acquired this great wood pallet several months ago, courtesy of an alley somewhere in northwest Chicago. Like the unabashed d.i.y. nut I am, I stopped the bus on my way home from work to salvage my treasure––and then got right back on the bus. Luckily I was too busy thinking about what I was going to do with my pallet to notice all the strange looks I was getting.

I finally decided to make a shelf out of it for the wall above my sewing machine. To make it work with the room’s clean, bright, and rustic-chic style, I painted it white with a single, thin coat, which lets the wood show through a bit for a distressed look.

(reposting this as a photo for portfolio purposes. don’t mind me.)
