from pallet to shelf - 5 minutes & free

The other day I came across the website Knock-OffWood.   Have you seen it?  I am probably the last to know, but if you are out of the loop too, it is so worth checking out!  While browsing through the wonderful plans (and making mental notes of all the furniture I want to make - oh! I want that, and that, and...) I noticed the title "five minutes and free" - It was a sign, I tell ya!  As you know, I love 5 minute projects.
The next day I couldn't get it out of my head, so I emailed it to my husband, you know, just in case he came across any extra pallets, by chance.  And then an amazing thing happened, the flooring we ordered was delivered the next day - on an pallet!!!
That newly transformed pallet is now hanging on the wall next to my son's bed (thanks to my wonderful husband), perfect for all the books he totes up there.  And I think my husband has plans to make one for everyone in his family next Christmas.  5 minutes & Free - love it!


  1. that is such a great idea. around here pallets are just good for fire starters but this is so much better.

  2. Put me on the list for Christmas...I love it!

  3. What a great idea. You can't beat fast and free! Oh, and one more pair of 'F's' could be added - fun and functional! I like the rustic look too.
