Pallet Wood Ceiling

Vote for this contest contender!

My husband and I were looking for an affordable option for the ceiling in my new workshop. After looking at many options we came across the idea to use pallet slats. He found a place locally that was giving away pallets for free for disposal.

He spent about 1 day tearing apart about 45 pallets by cutting the nails with a saw. He then laid them out and pressure washed them. After they dried he started applying them to the ceiling with brad nails or finish nails. Behind the slat ends that aren't over a truss he nailed short pieces to give it more stability.

It turned out beautiful! Everyone that visits my workshop comments with rave reviews that I have to pass on to my handy husband.

Total Time: 3-4 days

Yield: 1 beautiful ceiling

Smart thinking. This looks great. And no matter how many times your tip is used, due to variations in the pallet wood, each ceiling will be a unique, one of a kind.
