Rustic meets modern with this charming do-it-yourself guide. Here are 40 easy-to-follow designs, ranging from coffee tables and wine racks to decorative wall art, all with step-by-step and clear full-color photographs. Perfect for those looking for simple and creative ways to decorate their homes.

Wooden shipping pallets have found an unlikely second life: beautiful, handcrafted home décor without the designer price. The DIY market has long been drawn to refurbishing furniture and interior design on a budget, but easily accessible wood pallets have provided an eco-friendly, low-cost way to personalize a home.

Beginner and veteran DIYers alike can take delight in crafting various furniture and décor that will impress and inspire without breaking the bank. Included within are instructions on how to make the following projects:
  • Hanging Shelf
  • Deck Chair
  • Wall-Hanging Mason Jar Organizer
  • Pallet-Mounted Bottle Opener
  • Wall-Mounted Coat Rack
  • Sconces
  • Door Handle Serving Tray
  • Pallet Arrow Wall Art
  • Outdoor Flower Box
  • Flower Arrangement Centerpiece
  • Clothes Pin Picture Frame
  • Rustic Nightstand
  • Shabby Chic Toolbox
  • Farmhouse Spice Rack
  • Farmhouse Wall Clock
  • Tealight Candle Holders
  • And more!

With wooden pallets, the scope of the project is boundless, and warehouses and stores are happy to give them away for free. What was once a scavenger hunt and test of skill for experienced DIYers can now be an easy weekend project for even the newest of crafters.

Take pride in creating imaginative home stylings with found and reclaimed materials that will help the environment, save you money, and make your home even more lovely!
