A Pallet Plate Holder

As some of you may recall, I had decorated the top of my old fridge with two pallet boxes that I made last summer.
When my new fridge came, the magazine type box was too tall to put on top of the new fridge.
I had placed it on my coffee station.  I really wanted to hang it on my wall, but alas it was way too heavy.  I really like the way the wood bowl, pie pan, wood scoop and spoon look in the rack.
I decided to make a lighter rack to hold them.
Hubby cut up another pallet that didn't have a back to it.
I nailed a piece of pallet wood onto the bottom of the rack.
I then took a piece of lathe, cut it, and nailed it to the back.
It is 2/3 lighter than the other rack--PERFECT!
I didn't want to paint it.  I also went back and forth on whether I should paint a saying on it.  I decided that I just wanted it to look old.
To make the wood look aged, I took some Dark Walnut stain and dry brushed the edges.
I think I made the right decision.
I love the way it looks on the kitchen wall.

  1. Great job on creating a new rack for your new kitchen. Was the wood that gray or did you age it first? Love the accent with the stain on the corners.
