Perfect Picture Frames from Pallets

I am knee deep in a garage, mudroom and kitchen addition,” says Katie from Little House of Four.  “Each week we’ve had a few deliveries, which all resulted in pallets full of material being delivered to the house.”  She’s been using all that pallet wood to make useful and beautiful things for her home.  Her latest project is turning pallet wood into picture frames.


After pulling off several boards from one of the pallets, Katie cut them into equal lenghths.  She glued several boards onto a rectangular piece of thin luan board, then stained the boards. She purchased 8×10 pieces of plexiglass to protect her photos, then attached photos and plexiglass the stained wood with tabs that she cut out from leftover sheet metal.  What a unique and beautiful way to display photos!
