Tutorial: Recycled Pallet Memo Frame June 15, 2011 DIY, Eco Friendly Projects, Tutorials 12 Comments 6798 I submitted this project to One Month To Win It, but I thought I’d share more details about how I made it for you lovely readers. If you don’t have access to pallet wood, you can use new 1×4 boards, distressed with any number of techniques also recommended for anger therapy: banging them with a chain, hitting them with hammers or a bag of nails, or denting them with screwdrivers. I used 4 boards, 2 of which I cut in half. Each side has 1 1/2 planks, and the top and bottom use the other 2 halves. It ended up working out perfectly to create a floor length leaning style piece (this would make a totally awesome mirror!). I used flat brackets called menders to connect the boards together (just FYI, I found these at Lowes- my Home Depot didn’t have these). I put wood glue in between each joint as well. I sanded lightly to remove splinters but left the wood as is otherwise. Twelve screw-in eye hooks create the twine grid. I just calculated the spacing by measuring the inside opening. Some vintage-y images from Graphics Fairy are held in place by clothespins. I’m leaning it on the stair landing for now, but it may move around the house-possibly to our bedroom. I’m in L-O-V-E with it 🙂 Oh and the best part for a cheapskate like me: the total cost was about $7 since I had everything on hand except the brackets and the eye hooks! ***********Linked Up************ 12 Responses Janet June 17, 2011 I love this!
