Here at the paint store there’s never a shortage of wooden shipping palettes and we’re always happy to donate. With a little bit of work, this inexpensive wood can be turned into beautiful items for your home!
Shipping palettes are very rough. When handling, a pair of work gloves will protect your hands from splitters. Before you start, remove any loose or broken nails and wood pieces. Then sand WELL. Start with a rough sandpaper (like 60-80 grit) and progressively make your way up to a finer grit for a smooth finish. After you’re done building, you can paint, stain or whitewash your finished piece to match any decor.
