Pallet frame

On my to do list I had a customized wooden large frame...and I had the perfect wood 
(free from pallets).
I just had to removed two slats and cut it down to the size I needed.
***here how to safely and easily taking a wooden pallet apart***

I built a rustic frame using nails and strips of leftover wood.
I attached them on the back, and when you turn it around it looks great. 
I put 4 nails in each strip, since the wooden frame is heavy and I wanted to be very sturdy.
And it is.
No, I am not keeping this outside, just wanted to show you how it looks.
Definitely the beauty of using pallets is that it gives it a rustic, primitive look...of something you would find in an old barn.
Which I love.
I think it turned out perfect for what I am going to use this for.
In fact, I don't think I could have found a frame that would fit "item" any better.
I am going to show you what I am using this for.

My cost $0

Have you found any free pallets lately?

Stay Frugal,

Wow. Seriously, not a scrap goes to waste in your house. This frame looks amazing. Hard to believe you made it out of a pallet.
