Oddly enough, we used a level for the first few layers, but we didn’t use it for the rest of the wall. We would check it every once in a while (as if we were gonna rip the wall off and start over), but it leveled itself quite well. In other words, we hung the first strip on the right side of the wall, then we hung the second strip starting on the left side of the wall. I knew there would be a lot of imperfections in the wood, and there might be some gaps here and there. We left the stained wood outside to dry and air out for a few days before moving on to installation. It’s hard to capture in pictures, but we love the detail in the varying depth of the wood. Now, brace yourself for a week of DIY projects that can’t possibly produce posts as lengthy as this one.
I’ve been wanting to do a project with pallets for a while and this just sent me over the edge.
Our walls were already painted in Ben Moore’s Gray Husky, and that seems to be dark enough to hide any gaps. This was exactly my question…how the heck did you fill in the gap from the wall to the top piece of trim.
Here is the pallet wood wall we achieved form the pallets which we found from the near one nursery. To do this DIY pallet wood wall project was a little bit time taken task but was much handy.
You hallway, bedroom back wall or living room, any of them can be remodeled with pallet way in just a couple of hours. We selected the rustic brown nature of pallet which have clean rustic history on the top and has naturally been weathered for many years. We have used the sawmill or rotatory saw to get separated up the pallets into a pile of planks.


For more precise results in your work of filling the fall start filling the each row with opposite position to previous one this will remove the gaps and will give an accomplished wooden texture. Finally we achieved a rustic wood wall which give our room a appreciable rank along with visually attractive and impressive looks which make a great compliment to home as a whole.

We shared a few of our inspiration pics last week, and after reading a few tutorials from others, we learned that most others chose to install the wood as is. We’ve seen others used plywood behind the pallet wood, but we chose to go straight into the wall. Can’t wait to do this in my house, but have been hesitating because I have heard they spray the pallets with chemical.
You can out the construction area, sometime road sides and also the Craigslist to search for the pallets.  We found them from a nursery and get loaded them on vehicle without paying any thing.
If you also love the rustic and antique wooden effects just like us then you should go for such a wooden wall texture which would be nice DIY pallet wall art too.
This will be great addition to rustic and cottage chic environment for some really cool antique wooden looks. Uneven edges, nails holes, and wooden cavities are still there as a aged and vintage wood signs and show a very fetching prehistoric behavior.
If this DIY pallet wall tutorial has made you obsessed a lot then make it duplicated for any wall of your home and start enjoying the vintage wood looks. And although we were pretty confident in where the pallets had come from, we used a cleaning solution on them just in case. Yes, this will be less than pleasing to remove and may result in completely replacing the drywall if the time ever comes that we grow tired of the wall. My girlfriend was gung ho to start, so rather than wait to collect free pallets we bought 25 mattress pallets (they are ginormous) for $25. The first layer is slightly smaller, meaning that although it sits flush with the corner edge of the wall, it doesn’t necessarily meet flush with each horizontal piece.


Throughout most of the cuts, I held the pallets in place while Rick worked his way through with the sawzall. Then we used a wider vertical trim piece on top of that, which also meets the corner edge of the wall AND barely sits on top of each horizontal piece. Definitely something I would look into though, if you plan to bring the pallets into your home.
This was a mind bowing DIY project which gave us this eyeful wall texture for completed and well defined nature of home. You can decorate your homes, garden, inner, outer areas of house, offices with pallet furniture or any area you live in. Ours however, came in array of wood types and a lot of them, although still distressed, were fairly new. Since its winter and rarely above freezing the process may take a lil longer than yours because we have to figure out how to dry the wood after cleaning, then stain indoors (limited space equals staining in limited quantities at a time). Meaning that they were still a light wood that hadn’t yet been exposed to the weathering conditions.
And in case anyone is curious, we used around 70 pieces of pallet wood and eight actual pallets total.
But, with the open corner comes a side view, and extra plywood would only add to the thickness of the wall. We loved the look of varying woods, but we also wanted the uniform of one stain color that would bring all of the wood into the same color tone.
