My first pallet project is complete! I had a tall and skinny mirror in my closet that needed something added to it. So, we decided to use pallets to make the mirror more beachy to go in our coastal themed bedroom! You could also leave it standing upright against a wall, but we used it horizontally on the wall.
You Will Need...
- Wood Glue
- Gorilla Glue
- Blue paint
- Sisal Rope
- Chalk paint
Step by Step Instructions
First, we used a sawzall to cut through the pallets. We cut each piece of wood in half, as they were pretty long. We laid out the wood to be a little longer than the length of the mirror.
Then we used wood glue and attached two pieces of wood on the back to attach the pallet wood together. We also used nails to help hold.
Once dry, I painted the mirror with the blue paint. While that dried, I mixed white chalk paint with water, 3:1. It was really watered down. I wiped it on the wood and kept painting until I liked the color of the whitewashed wood.
Once that dried, we used Gorilla glue and glued on the mirror. Then, I glued on some sisal rope around the edges, and you’re done!
