How To Make Pallet Bookshelves
I am sure you have seen Pallet bookshelves around the internet.
I made some for the boutique last month and I wanted to show you how I did it.
Grab a pallet.
I used the Circular Saw. I just used the board as a guide and cut right up the side of it.
My saw blade was not big enough to go all the way through.
So I flipped the pallet over and tried to just match up my line. Well... You can see how well that went!
For the next cut I just got out the Sawzall to cut the rest of the way through. That worked GREAT!
I took some unfinished to the boutique and some painted. To paint them I primed them with Kilz Primer. The best primer ever. I brushed it on. And it took FOREVER! My sister-in-law Kortnie from Ioka Lane Boutique uses it in the Spray Can and told me I should try that! I definately will next time!
*If you chose to brush it on, make sure you have some paint thinner around because it is oil-based.
I left the bottom off for painting so that I could get up inside easier.
I just laid out all of my bottom pieces and painted them.
