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


  • 140 sq ft about 45 pallets worth of slats, pressure washed and allowed to dry
  • 1 Box finish nails
  • nail gun
