The image below shows a high end space using recycled, low end pallets in a most fabulous way. This may very well be the most inexpensive, high style storage solution for this particular use, I have seen yet. The only unfortunate part of this, is that for many of us, these inexpensive or free, recycled pallets, are anything but. In California, you would be hard pressed, or very lucky to get your hands on a few of these...so, if you're like me, and you can't join them...beat em' and fake it!
This plan is for quick and easy project that can be created from scraps left over from other projects or from a few inexpensively purchased boards, and can be altered to suit any scraps or boards you have on hand. Get yourself an inexpensive set of stencils (Dollar Store, Grocery Store or WalMart and typically sold for teachers or kids making poster board projects), and a couple of small bottles of craft paint to give yourself some authentic looking pallet markings and to highlight the nicks and gouges you will be creating if you want to weather and age your piece.
