Hi all!

I am so excited to share this project with you.  I {finally} convinced my handy husband to install a pallet wall in our new home.  Initially, he was certain that it would cost an arm and a leg and a lot of time, so he kept brushing the idea off.  BUT, when I showed him my vision for Baby Two’s nursery, I could start to see his creative wheels turning.  Y’all, we got these BEAUTIES at the Metrolina Antique and Vintage Market in Charlotte, and my husband would be the first to tell you that we got a STEAL!  We bought 16 partial pallets for $30.  Their natural, rustic look was exactly what I had envisioned, so we didn’t even need to buy stain for the nursery.  In addition, we were able to borrow tools from our generous neighbors.  So, our little project ended up being even cheaper than we had initially imagined.  Less work, less money – win, win!  As you can see in the first image, these pallets were nailed together, so we (okay, mostly Chad) spent hours bending back the nails and hammering them out.  It was quite a bit of work, and beat up those manly hands of his, but I think he would agree that it was totally worth it to attain the worn look that we were going for.

Whelp, one project turned into two.  While the neighbors are letting you borrow their tools, you do it all!  Thankfully, all 16 pallets covered us for the nursery, and our bathroom accent wall.  We even had a few pieces left over.
