What would make it perfect is a trap door or sliding bottom for easy emptying- An awesome DIY bottle opener, perfect for outdoor parties. It even collects the bottle caps. Ideal Father's Day gift or project to make with Dad.
A reclaimed pallet feature wall in the great room. "whitewash" each piece w/a dry paintbrush ~ when paint is dry, slightly distress it w/a wire brush ~ affix in a staggered, brick pattern. - A gorgeous reclaimed pallet feature wall!
