What do you think of this pallet repurposing -- furnishing a media room. Books, magazines, and other items can be stored in the pallets' open sides. The seating faces a screen that's framed by wall-mounted pallets that are also painted white. Well done, isn't it?
This space is created by opening the space between the studs in the wall. Small, skinny spot, but look at all of the fabulous storage with small pantry items that take forever to find - a great idea to steal space and have a big impact.
