This post has been a long time coming. I originally shared it with It’s So Very Cheri a few weeks back. I have been dying to show you ever since I started the project. Here it is, dear readers. Today, I am going to reveal part of my craft room organization – the pallet organizers! This project was so rewarding because my creative space was in desperate need of help.
You may have seen this picture in my post where I admitted I had a serious problem…
Something needed to happen, am I right?! Storage solutions are abundant, but can be expensive when purchased in big box stores. I was determined to get creative and come up with some budget friendly ways to get it together.
I decided it was time to go vertical and make use of the abundant wall space. While driving around and looking for garage I spied a huge pile of pallets at a local Brewery. They were happy to part with 2 of them, which I loaded into my truck and brought home.
I cleaned them with the hose, let them dry, then I spray painted them black with Krylon Dual (paint and primer in one).
Next I mounted them onto my wall and attached various racks/shelves I picked up at various thrift stores. There was not much planning here. I just spray painted the racks so everything was black, and attached them to the pallets like I would attach them to the wall. That way, the only wall holes are the ones for the pallet. Everything else hangs on the pallet, and is adjustable.
I got the white horizontal tubs at the hardware store for $1.50 each. They are great for fabric.
Once you get the pallets hung, you can customize them to fit your needs. Here are some examples…
I am super happy with my pallet storage units. The only holes in the wall are where I hung the pallets. Best of all… free! Yeah, it took some time and effort, but it was well worth it.
