Kristin's husband had the grueling task of finding pallets during his walks in the area, lugging them home one by one and cleaning them with bleach (I'm sure he wasn't a very happy camper!) It is all for the greater good, he was able to recycle these pallets instead of them going in the garbage. He managed to round up about 30 of them. After they were cleaned and slightly sanded, he cut off the nails keeping the nail heads showing, which looked great!
The wall they were adhering to was a concrete wall, so first they glued on a piece of plywood and anchored it to the wall.
They staggered the planks on the floor to get an idea of how it was going to look when it was up on the wall. Then cut the end pieces with a chop saw, this would be the best tool for this job it will give nice straight cuts.
Kristin and her husband said it is a bit of hard work preparing the wood, then after that the installation is quite easy. I think this wall turned out fabulous! Great job to the dynamic duo!
