"This is really cute. I like how the pom poms add a little touch of color and pep to the wreath without overwhelming the natural look of the pine cones."
"Love it, will try to make"
"This idea is just too cute! I have never worked with Shrinky Dink before but after seeing this, I may just try it out. Her tutorial makes it look so easy!"

As you're driving home from work or the store, you see someone throwing out wooden pallets. They're just throwing them away...when they could be turned into a craft project. The thought of wasted craft potential is inconceivable to you, so you take the neglected wood home and make yourself a DIY Pallet Shelf. Your home looks rustic and beautiful when you hang up your finished easy woodworking project. It is a useful piece that also looks like art. Start this simple wood project today and see your home transform into an organized and beautiful space.

Organizing Tips and Tricks:
Organizing can be such a bear, but when that clutter is gone, you will feel as if a weight has been lifted. Start the year off right and organize the closets and cabinets that you avoid looking in unless you absolutely have to. We're here to help you declutter your home with the best organization tips we know. Soon your home is going to look even better than the ones in the magazines piled on your coffee table.
First, get things off the floor and put them on wall storage. The walls are empty and wasted storage space that are just waiting to be used. You can make easy DIY pallet shelves like the one above or something smaller like this No Sew Embroidery Hoop Wall Organizer. What used to be clutter is now unique decoration and everything is in its place.
Then, make free and easy drawer dividers out of old shoe and tissue boxes. Cut them down to fit in your drawers and decorate them with washi tape. Now your junk drawer is your pride and joy that you will want to open every day.
Finally, give away the things you haven't used in over a year. If you haven't needed it for that long, then you most likely won't need it in the future. Donate the clothes you don't wear anymore to free up space in your closet and dresser drawers. Sell your old textbooks or novels that you know you will never read again.
This is just the beginning. You are on your way to a clutter-free life...or you have made room for new stuff! Either way, it feels pretty good to see the open spaces full of possibility.

Pallet boards make the best upcycled rustic furniture from coffee tables to couches and beds. This kitchen shelf looks great and it's simple to make but you might wanna get some help if you dread hammering things. With some distressed paint finish and your favorite cutlery to show off, you are good to go.

This is a great idea. You can often get used pallets from newspaper offices or sometimes a freight yards (where they unload freight trains). I've seen pallets used to build furniture but I never thought about using them like this, which is much simpler. I think even I could do that!

This is a cute and cost effective addition for a cottage, cabin, craft room, garage, or anywhere for that matter. I could be used for everything from a utility shelf to a spice rack. You can leave it plain, or paint it to match your decor. So many uses, so many options. I love it!

Great thrifty project idea. The DIY Pallet Shelf tutorial is very well explained with lots of helpful pictures. I appreciate how clear and simple the instructions are. For years I have wanted to make more than just outdoor projects with the pallets I had found, and now I do thanks to this DIY. I always struggled with the idea of taking those darn things apart for the wood itself. Silly how it had not occured to me to use a reciprocating saw!!! Duh.
