Three Different Ways to Build a Pallet Wall

Published on NewsOK Published: April 8, 2013

Sanded and whitewashed pallet wall: One way to build a pallet wall is to first sand and whitewash the pallets to give them a cool, greyish color. Whitewashing some of the boards with grey paint, and some with white paint, gives the wall a stylishly-uneven look. A whitewashed pallet wall looks awesome with industrial-chic light fixtures and grey-blue walls.

Cleaned and sanded pallet wall: While whitewashing gives a pallet wall a modern edge, leaving the pallets their natural color lends itself to a warm, rustic look. Want to make your living room look a bit more like a mountain lodge? Clean and sand the pallets, but don't paint them. Do seal them for a shiny look and for moisture resistance.

Mixed salvage board and pallet wall: The most complicated of the three ways of building a pallet wall that I am sharing, the mixed board wall requires some good geometry and measuring skills. The payoff is worth the work, though. A mixed salvage board and pallet wall allows for unbelievable artistic flexibility. Want to make it pop with colors? You can do that. Want to go rustic and neutral? You can do that, too. Mixing the sizes, widths, and colors of the boards is the name of the game.
