Pallet Project- New Ceiling

Two years ago my husband and I upgraded our basement bathroom in our old home. It was a half bath. It had a sink, a toilet, and some drywall walls, as well as a door. We completed the drywall and painted. We put in a tile floor.  But my favorite was the pallet wall behind the toilet.

My friends have wanted to upgrade their ceiling for a few years. But ceilings are difficult and expensive. They saw my pallet bathroom wall and I showed them some different styles that I looked up.

We have been getting together and working on it periodically for about a year. We collect pallets and have pallet parties where we work together, kids included to pull apart 30 to 50 pallets in just a few hours.

The pallet boards have soooooo many steps! It is not a simple project or a quick project either.

The boards get planed, cut to length and width, puttied, and sanded with two to three different sand paper grits. We start with 80 and finish with 220.

Then they are stained and polyurethaned for a nice shine.

The boards are then put up on the ceiling. Which have created a beautiful warm country feel to their home.

We have had so much fun with this project and It really was a great deal of work but such a wonderful life experience.
