The counter he made for our kitchen was probably the biggest pallet project he’s done. Part of our kitchen has a circular breakfast nook which until recently had been an area of unused space. We love the shape of the area, but it was difficult to arrange furniture in. Our kitchen is small and we really wanted to utilize this space, so my husband came up with the idea to build a countertop out of pallets that would wrap around the circular wall. Again, he simply used his imagination when it came to designing the counter and just improvised as he went along. As mentioned, chances are the pallets one may be working with won’t be expensive, which allows the builder room for flexibility and imagination. If a mistake it made it’s easy to just start over. We stained the finished counter top a sea foam green and it has since become the focal point of our eclectic kitchen. Pallets can be used in any size project. For instance my husband also made a simple outdoor crate in less than 30 minutes. I was trying to figure out how to display fall flowers and pumpkins on our porch. He told

me he had an idea and whipped up the crate before I had time to see what he was doing. He didn’t bother staining it, just left it in its natural state, and it worked perfectly. Pallets have an innumerable amount of uses. All it takes is a little imagination and the right tools to get started. Whether it be patio furniture, shelves, decorative signs or something as simple as a crate to set pumpkins on, the pallet possibilities are endless.
