Pallet wood comes in all colours, from a fresh pine, to old and aged perfectly-but healthy inside. The last one is particularly valuable, underneath this grey and rusty looks-a true beauty hides. A good belt sander and some patience will make that beauty pop out and will give your project an unique look.
This wine rack comes from this sort of material, I picked it up behind a shop, owner allowed me only one, so I took special care of that piece.
This is what I was able to make out of that. A broken front board makes it look even nicer, again-all healthy wood, strong and sound for many years to come.
Tons and tons of ideas you can find on the internet, or come up with something that no one has done yet-few basic tools and off you go.
