Rather than send pallets to a landfill, use them for a rugged yet earthy look. Simply combine them, add to a wall using flat brackets, strong wood screws, wall hooks, wire and a little luck. Total Cost: $12
Bring a warm natural vibe into a room using pallets as the focal point. Paired with dark stain, a bright backing wall and contrasting pops of color, nobody will even consider the fact that you scored all this lumber from an alley somewhere mysterious.
