My daughter, Brianne, my husband, George and I grabbed our boots and gloves last Saturday morning. We were going pallet-picking. Our first stop was to check out a construction site that used wooden portable crossing for low-bearing soil. Although it was an awesome sight to behold, it was a NO GO. George said that they looked to be treated – *sigh* – not something we wanted to bring into our homes.
We turned to Craigslist and found pallets at a church construction site. Amazing how fast news travels; there was a waiting line of trucks when we got there! But, there was plenty go around, everyone was in a good mood and we all helped each other.
A little buggy and dirty, we scrubbed them down at an outdoor car wash.
Next, we cut them into lengths and then pulled out nails. Ugh! What a job!
The 1st BIG PLAN is to construct a kitchen island for Brianne’s tiny storage deprived kitchen. Will def post photos of this completed project soon.
Question: Should we stain it, paint it or just clear coat it? The wood is rough, we’ll need to do something.
Have a good weekend! — Joanne
