Functional Magic with Pallets

Now that the sun is finally making a break through here in North Attleboro, I am definitely ready to get back outside and get working but I also wouldn’t mind working on a little functional art with the kids as well!   How super creative and simple are these ideas for re-purposing wooden pallets.  I have included my favorites below but definitely check out the whole article at Better Homes and Gardens for more DIY Pallet Projects.

A Sliding Barn Door… Love it!

I definitely love décor that tells a story. And even more than décor, any of my buyers will tell you I love Homes that tell a story! It is so satisfying to see before and after pictures of houses I have sold to see how each buyer puts their own personal stamp on their interior and exterior spaces. A plain, forgettable, house soon becomes a memorable comfortable “Home”.

This is one project I have always wanted to try in my house. A sliding barn door offers function and style plus does not take up space in your room. No need to rip open walls for pocket doors or framing openings for standard doors. And think of all of the possibilities for the door itself… casual, rustic, painted, metal. Or, heck you could do a chalkboard, huge dry erase board, calendar on one side and always have access to it since door won’t be opening and closing in standard fashion.
