Pallet walls have been trending big time in the Project Nursery Gallery, which had me dreaming of endless design possibilities the moment my eye caught this eclectic wood-paneled inspired nursery. So when it came time to create a big boy room for my little man Chase, I showed my husband Josh a few samples of pallet walls created by adventurous parents. The beauty of this cabin-inspired look is that the more distressed and wrecked the boards, the better. I think it’s important to note that we did not lay out the boards and plan in advance. And in the end, my pallet wall dream became a reality in the form of an industrial-chic growing boy’s room.
With a passion for decorating and design, it was Melisa's experience as a first time mom, that inspired her to start Project Nursery. If you go on craigslist there are lots of people giving palettes away– they actually want people to come haul them away. You mentioned using a pry bar to take the pallets apart and that it damaged several of the boards.
I read that you did not stain them but did you wash the pallets prior to sanding or applying them to the wall? How did you cover the old nail head holes or did you just put screw back in the same holes to attach to wall.
I’m curious as to what you used for screws, since I cannot spot them in any picture, in assuming that they blend in rather well.
I asked the Handsome Husband if he could find me a couple of good clean pallets asap and he did.  He was able to bring home 2 pallets in great condition the very next day.
Here is what the back of the pallet looked like before I injected a ton of staples into the fabric. If you don’t, when it comes time to stand your pallet up, the soil will slide, and your plants will end up behind the slats. Next add your plants.  I filled this one with strawberries, but I plan on filling my next pallet garden with an assortment of herbs.
Can I send you my 4 and 6 year old boys to terrorize your chickens for a day while I build a pallet garden? You could hide the exposed soil with your abundant moss to Shade and keep the soil from coming out when you water. Make sure you use only pallets with the letters HT which stands for Heat Treatment, which is used to kill any fungus or insects. Chemically treated pallets will be marked with MB, a highly toxic insecticide, banned in North America and European Union. Pallets in North America are usually stamped HT, which means it is heat treated instead of chemicals, they are no longer allowed to be treated this way here. Use the light ones stamped with HT for pallet gardens and the heavy one stamped HT for firewood in your rocket stove, or else , if the boards are in good shape you may want to take a reciprocating saw and cut the nails so you can use the wood for other projects. I used an old cheep blanket and burlap fabric over it (for sturdiness) to hold the back of my pallet. Cardboard, cardboard, cardboard, it’s free, made with organic glue and turns into fertilizer.
My father recently spent a TON of money making a special box with heavy wood, a pvc pipe watering system and lattice to make basically the same thing for my grandmother for her birthday.
I do have a tad bit of OCD and things that arent lined up and centered tend to bother me, so this is PERFECTION in my mind.


Hello Mavis- Thanks for inspiring me to do better and get better deals for the food I feed my family. As most of you know – we love to build with pallet wood but that means you have to learn a quick and easy way to disassemble a pallet.
You can get a corded or cordless sawzall – but they are the king of dismantling pallets.
Instead, we opt for our sawzall method – which can disassemble a pallet in less than two minutes into 10 or more pieces of great usable wood. They are the key to quickly destructing a pallet – and without damaging or splintering the wood.
I have tried to sand down pallets for the projects i’m doing and those nail heads destroy sanding belts.Any ideas ? Here at Hometipsworld we look for interesting articles covering home improvement, cleaning and gardening tips from around the world.
We’ve been doing some makeover around the house and I felt that I wanted to go with a rustic feel in the bedroom.
Now that you’ve fully covered your wall with pallets, there might be some spaces in the edges. I’ve gotta admit that it was kind of a thrill driving around town and throwing abandoned pallets from the back of stores into the car.
My father was in town one weekend and helped with sanding down each board after Josh used a crowbar to disassemble each pallet slat and remove its many nails.
Adhere thin pieces of plywood to the wall by attaching them with wood screws directly into the studs. To avoid seeing random gaps in trouble areas, simply stain the plywood behind the seams before securing a wood slat over it to disguise the gaps.
I’ve seen other DIYers lay the boards out perfectly and number each one prior to assembly. Melisa lives back east with her three kids, Austin, Chase and new baby girl Emerson—thrilled that she can now finally decorate with the color pink!
Outlet extenders found at your local hardware store are however really inexpensive and easy to use.
One they were sanded down with an electric sander, the color was perfectly natural and rustic.
There are a lot of FREE pallets because a lot of the time the damaged or very old ones are not worth sending back. An easier way to separate the boards would have been to use a saws-all (otherwise known as a reciprocating saw) to cut the boards away from the 2x4s. We did this as the focal point in our living room and using them to reface kitchen cabinets. I’m assuming the plywood plus the pallet added another 2.5 inches extension, so how did you compensate for getting the socket cover back on ?
Some companies have broken skids they have to pay to have hauled off and will give them away for free so this would be inexpensive and cute.
Both my wife and had said the same thing leaving them open will add character but not having the wall up yet it’s hard to picture what it will actually look like plus the dark stain we invision will certainly add to the aged look . Don’t use painted pallets, also used for transporting chemicals, usually for the pool industry.
I live in Seattle…any chance on getting the scoop on where to get untreated pallets?!


I also used a layer of burlap on the front of my pallet (the inside front), so that the ground does not come out. Im still waiting on mine, and while hes saving his pennies and finding an army of men to lift the thing to the wall where it hangs, im going to go “borrow” some of the pallets he has waiting for the fire pit and make my own!
Then – head down the middle row doing the same thing and in no time you have a lot of great pallet wood for all of your crafts! If your wall needs a makeover and you don’t think paint is the solution, why not make a wood pallet wall? She is a lover of all things crafty with a special affinity for cooking, life hacks, party throwing, and interior decorating. To my surprise, he took it as a challenge and jumped at the chance to make his own pallet wall.
I would think that a person would be smart enough to check what material was being stored on them before just throwing them on a wall. For a small bathroom with no windows I would keep your paint color light and use a pale gray or beige.
We have a huge stack of pallets that we are planning to breakdown and use for a wall in my living room, but I am concerned about any residual chemicals that might be lingering still. Once the pallet is filled with soil (it’s easier to fill it without losing any soil, and spread the soil evenly) i just cut slits in burlap and inserted my plants. She lives in Austin, Texas where she's been settled since attending the University of Texas.
We filled an 11 x 8 foot wall and required approximately seventeen (17) pallets to make it happen.
I just finished the sheet rock and realized that I did not bring out my outlets far enough so that they would be flush with the finished wall. If you’re worried about the nail heads that are left in the boards, use a small punch to knock them out. But, the side of our garage is in the sun and I could lean a few pallets up against it and have an amazing herb garden.
My plants are still small, so they dont cover all the ground and burlap is helping to hold it all in. You can do it for your bedroom wall as a DIY room decor or on any wall you have around the house!
You must remember to account for waste because some slats will inevitably get damaged in the process.
I worked in a grocery store and saw everything from meat juice to rotten produce leaked on the pallets. Initially I had the pallet at about 40% angle to the ground, now it is almost upright (I added plants to the top of the pallet). We love doing cool DIY projects by making craft projects, home decor projects, upcycling ideas, recipes, tutorials and anything you can do yourself. That’s why we created this site, we want people to be more in touch with their creative side and realize that there’s a lot of things that they can do themselves. We’d love to hear from you and create a community of DIY enthusiasts where any project is just a click away.
