Pallet Shelving

Nic (my husband) works for an amazing church, (Brentwood Church, check them out here if you are in the Lynchburg area). Well this week they received a shipment of new sound equipment, and I received a discarded pallet from the deal. It is just the right amount of beat up/ perfect that I love in my home. We hung it and VOILA! A free version of floating shelves (sorta).

I know lots of stores have these lying around and I have seen them as headboards in a child’s room, in a kitchen to hold dishes and out in the garden lined with pots of plants. What a fun and free item!!!
