My little helper, Addy
White washed background and stained wood
Very tired after a long few days of work
This project was super quick and easy and has seriously transformed our very neglected kitchen. From the linoleum cabinets and counter tops to the tiny sink, the kitchen seemed unsalvageable so I focused my projects everywhere else. There was a large 4ft x 8ft empty space of wall that I had contemplated doing something with for a very long time but I had no idea how to use the space. I finally saw an industrial pallet at work this summer and quickly set my heart on a kitchen storage/beautification project. I brought it home hoping that I would be able to take it apart and build some really unique storage. After several hours of trying to pry slats of wood free and breaking several I finally gave up on the disassembly plan. I was extremely lucky though because the intact pallet just happened to fit perfectly in the space! I stained the front half of the wood and white washed the back panels. Once everything was dry (about 12 hours later) I added two Ikea Fintorp rails for hanging pots and pans. I'm incredibly happy with the result but admittedly a little sad that I didn't get to use my tools.
