Pallet Wood Craft Paint Organizer

.

My craft paint supply had outgrown the vintage soda crate they were stored in. Plus, I work in a very small room and I needed to regain precious shelf space.

A cheap space saving organizer was needed. I like cheap; but no cost is even better! Left over paint, pallet and bead board scraps were used to build a larger organizer.

Pallet strips left over from other projects (Pallet Kitchen Island Worktable and Pallet + Plywood Workspace Table) were used to build a “frame” and a sheet of bead board (Half-bath Remodel) was used as backing. Two more pieces of pallet were used for the inner shelves. To hold it all in, a thin strip of finishing wood was added to the front of each shelf. To tie the woods together, MMS Luckett’s Green Milk Paint was dry-brushed over the organizer. Kind of looks like a rough and rustic, overgrown spice rack. 😉

Space saving, cheap and precious shelf space regained!

Pallet Picking Fun

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.
