pallets shelves....LOVE this look. (thank you Paige King for finding it) yes those are old wooden pallets that have been re purposed. you could take this idea and paint them and put them in a room to hold books. it says "hey grab me!"
Using pallets both as furniture and also as workable "canvases" has been a very old idea for me. I did not have the right spot for doing this. The new studio is perfect. Imagine painted pallet on wall with canvas underneath creating two contexts with space inbetween and possibly some lighting. As a table it offers small surfaces for wood burning images.
