Wood Pallet Projects
Wood Pallet Projects are probably one of my favorite projects to do mainly because they are basically free. They can be used in so may ways, if you follow us here at One More Time Events you have seen quite a few we have shared, a Party Caddy, coffee tables , Post Stations just to name a few. Today we will be sharing a couple of quick and easy wood pallet projects, one is a tray with cast iron handles and the other is a pallet wood candle wall sconce.
Here in the dining room the tray sits on the dining room table, the sconce is on the wall in the same room. I love the way the two compliment each other.
DIY Pallet Wood Sconce
- Sconce: I had this one, but you could use any sconce you may already have. I have found these:
Black Metal and Glass Hurricane Sconce which I think would also look great. One thing I do love is mixing rustic with a little elegance.
- Brad Nail Gun: WEN 61720 3/4-Inch to 2-Inch 18-Gauge Brad Nailer
- White Chalk Paint: FOLKART Home Decor Chalk, 16 oz, White Adirondack
Instructions for Sconce
Cut pallet apart take one of the slats (this one is 7″ wide) cut it 19″ in length. This will become the back piece.
Note: This will also depend on the length of the sconce you will be using so adjust to the size of your sconce.
Take another one of the slats and cut into 7″ pieces, lay them along the backing. Space them out how you want. Nail in place or if you have a brad nail gun you can use it. I love my brad nail gun it is so easy to use, (especially when working with pallets, the wood is very hard) and not that expensive…definitely worth the money) if any of the pallets over hang a band saw can be used to cut off the excess.
The entire piece was dry brushed with white chalk paint
Add a hanger on the back, and a nail in the front to hang sconce. That easy…
How to Make a Table Tray From a Pallet
- Cast Iron Drawer Handles found at Hobby Lobby
- White Chalk Paint
Drawer handles were also dry brushed with chalk paint, holes were drilled and attached
I hope you enjoyed this project as much as we did putting it together. I am still amazed how a pallet has so many uses and can be turned into a functional beautiful piece. Thank you for stopping by and spending your time here with us at One More Time Events.
