Pallets and Letters

So, this idea isn't anything new...in fact, the different uses of pallets is all over blogland and the internet.  However, one idea that I love is using the pallets as storage.  I wanted to incorporate this idea somewhere in my kitchen, but I don't have alot of wall space so I decided it would work best on my counter.  It was a little "blah" so I decided to cut some letters out of 1/4" mdf board to spell "Bakery".  I painted them a creamy white color and used wood glue to secure them to the front of the pallet storage.  Now its a great place to keep my favorite and frequently used cookbooks.





Thank you for stopping by...

  14. Great result!
    How did you cut out your letters? You mentioned it as if it were as easy-breazy for you as cutting them out with scissors. So now I'm curious :-)

  16. What a cute idea. Cookbooks are sometimes too pretty to be hidden so you have created the perfect solution for that.
    Great job.
