Distressed Mail Holder From Pallet We have a problem in our home when it comes to the mail. We bring it in every day, but we don't always have time to look at it right away. It ends up piling up on the kitchen table or on the counters. And it drives.me.crazy! Solution? Here's a little background on how this mail holder came to be. I looked outside and what to my wondering eyes should appear?? 4 pallets in my very own backyard! I promptly demanded begged the hubs to pry apart some of these boards with me so I could start creating. Sooooo, the hubs used an electric saw to cut pieces of the boards off. I designed it. I love the old wood, but I really wanted it to blend in with the furniture in my kitchen a little better. This is the bench we have from this set to give an idea of the distress on the wood. So, I needed to distress the mail holder because right now its silky smooth... I attacked with this nail first... I gouged and scraped. Then I went at it with this... The hubs wasn't around for me to ask what it was. Great!

Standard Pallets Reused Free pallets are wanted here, just your standard, everyday pallet is fine. You can see I'm using two free pallets as a raised surface for our small backyard container garden of mostly tomatoes and Japanese cucumbers. This system works great cause all we have to do is run the mower along the edges of the wooden pallets and not worry about knocking over any veggies. (And the slats in the pallets were perfect for sliding the legs of the tomato cages through to the ground.) Anyway, I thought I was so smart and clever until doing a search on the Internet this morning....I found a lot of VERY ingenious uses for a standard pallet.

Uses For Shipping Pallets Cheap and plentiful, wood pallets are used to ship millions of consumer goods from one end of the globe to the other, protecting them from damage. But they're often used just once and then discarded. While some are too worn to reuse, many are made of durable hardwoods like oak and walnut. Because they're so bulky, and many companies sending and receiving goods use hundreds of them in a single month, pallets can be expensive to dispose of. Many firms work with pallet recycling companies that pick up used pallets and then use wood from broken pallets to repair others or create new ones. Consumers are taking advantage of this often-wasted resource as well with DIY projects that transform discarded shipping pallets into upcycled furniture and other crafts. If you want to take advantage of the many uses for shipping pallets in a project of your own, there are certain safety precautions you should take.
