Kitchen Organizer

Make an efficient kitchen space by hanging utensils that you use often. Ask help from your carpenter especially if you're hanging the pallet above a sink, stove, or working area.

Wine Rack

Keep wines and drinks organized by installing a recycled wine rack near the dining area or add to your lanai. For a stylish look, you may also apply wood varnish.

Mini Garden

If you own a condo unit and you want to start a mini garden, a wooden pallet will surely come in handy. You may use it as planters for your herbs and greens then place it on the balcony where it can get enough sunlight.

Another way to use the pallet as garden: use it as a shelf where you can display or hang your mini planters. You can do this if you're planning to have a herb garden! Each planter can hold oregano, basil, and mint, to name a few.

Coffee table

Take your DIY skills to the next level by crafting your own coffee table! If you need help attaching legs, you may get in touch with your trusted carpenter. After finishing the project, you may leave the table as is for a rustic and distressed look. You may also paint it to match the colors of your space.

Closet organizer / Clothes rack

Keep your closet organized by adding a pallet board with hooks where you can hang bags, hats, and scarves. Aside from using it as closet organized, you may opt to have another piece by the entryway where guests can leave their hats and jackets. Make it quirky by painting it with different colors.
