Trash to Treasure: Kitchen organizer from pallet scraps!
Recently I made a pallet flag and had a few pieces of wood left over. First, I thought of just throwing these few pieces of beat up wood away. But, then not wanting anything to go to waste, I decided to create a kitchen organizer for my cookbooks. Here are the pieces that had been cut off the pallet:
The wood was rough, cracked, and split.
It took lots of wood glue,
Lots of wood putty,
And lots of sanding with an electric sander and by hand with sand paper to get it ready for paint. The pieces to the left were used to brace the back and to create a top shelf.
The wood was so old it soaked in three coats of paint!
The love script and the old cookie cutters were attached with Gorilla Glue. I thought the glue gun would work, but it didn’t, so I had to resort to using the old stand-by, Gorilla Glue!
Here’s the cook book organizer empty, with the back brace and top shelf added.
Here it is again, with my cookbooks added! I love my new kitchen organizer made from pieces of an old pallet that I had once (for just a minute!) thought about throwing away. Trash to treasure once again!
