With the trend of using reclaimed wood being so big, one of the easiest and cheapest type of reclaimed wood is pallet wood. The worn look is warm, rustic, industrial, and or country. Whatever style you choose, pallet wood can add a unique look to any room, piece of furniture or exterior.
The hardwood provides beautiful character in the grain and is very durable. The nail heads look great left in the wood. It is important to use only pallets that have not been chemically treated.
Don’t worry about the thickness of each piece being the same. This randomness is what makes the wood look so good and provides much more character than a flat look.
