Wood Pallet Storage DIY

Hello readers of It’s So Very Cheri. I am thrilled to be invited to share with you here. Cheri is a great friend and source of creative inspiration to me. Today, I am going to reveal a never before seen part of my craft room organization – the pallet organizers! This project was so rewarding because my creative space was in desperate need of help…

Craft room organizing

Something needed to happen, am I right?! Storage solutions are abundant, but can be expensive when purchased in big box stores. I was determined to get creative and come up with some budget friendly ways to get it together.

I decided it was time to go vertical and make use of the abundant wall space. While driving around and looking for garage sales I spied a huge pile of pallets at a local Brewery. They were happy to part with 2 of them, which I loaded into my truck and brought home.

I cleaned them with the hose, let them dry, then I spray painted them black with Krylon Dual (paint and primer in one).

Next I mounted them onto my wall and attached various racks/shelves I picked up at various thrift stores. There was not much planning here. I just spray painted the racks so everything was black, and attached them to the pallets like I would attach them to the wall. That way, the only wall holes are the ones for the pallet. Everything else hangs on the pallet, and is adjustable.

I got the white horizontal tubs at the hardware store for $1.50 each. They are great for fabric.

Once you get the pallets hung, you can customize them to fit your needs. Here are some examples…

I am super happy with my pallet storage units. The only holes in the wall are where I hung the pallets. Best of all… free! Yeah, it took some time and effort, but it was well worth it.

Very impressive! I’d have to fight hubs for the pallets, though, he has his own plans. They’re not as abundant as they used to be; people don’t give them away like in the good old days of, oh, 5 yrs. ago.
