Pallet Accent Wall

This accent wall was designed in the same renovated space as the barn door from a few posts ago. If you don’t like being able to see through the warped pieces of pallet planks, one suggestion is to buy a can of dark “Oops” paint from Home Depot and do a (messy – it’ll be covered, so bring out your inner child!) coat of it on the wall prior to starting.  Any dark brown color is a great choice! And then, when you look at the wall, you won’t see the white peeking through.  The brown instead blends in with the various pallet wood colors.



After counter was installed (by awesome contractors, not by yours truly) and the wall finished, I went back over the wall and hand-stained a few planks that the client had marked in a dark walnut and also cherry to tie in the colors from the barn door and barn wood bar that I helped finish:


I heart Waterlox. It cures barn wood from the inside and makes even the oldest, most crumbly pieces strong.
