Pinterest Challenge: Pallet Bookshelves

This project for Ezekiel’s room has actually been done for a few months, but I’m just now getting around to posting it. πŸ™‚

Last summer, I came across this post from my friend Bec at Little Lucy Lu.  I showed the post to Skyler and told him “this would be cool for Zeek’s room!”  No nagging involved – the man went out on his own, found a pallet, cut and tore them apart, sanded them, put them back together and brought one inside to say “ta da!”

I was pleased with my man, for sure!  He did a great job. πŸ™‚

I’m not going to show you how to do it because 1.) I didn’t watch him so I don’t know exactly how he did it and 2.) Bec did a great job on her tutorial.

Here’s Bec’s:

And here are ours!

We chose to leave them unpainted since almost all of his furniture is white already and I am going for an “industrial/colorful/whimsical/animal” room…  πŸ™‚

I like them a lot!  Even though they are only a few inches deep, they actually hold several books.  I keep the ones up here that I don’t want him to get down by himself.

You can see that they are hung up next to my ABC flash card art! πŸ™‚

We’ve got a few projects to make for this summer out of pallets.  I love all of the pallet ideas floating around!  I’m not sure I’d want to make a bed out of them, like I’ve seen in a few places, because of the chemicals that they can be treated with…. but some of the other stuff is cool – especially the outdoor furniture/sand boxes, etc!

Have you made anything with a pallet?  Show me!
