Pallet Project for Small Space Storage + Sale!!

I wasn’t really in the mood to do any organizing, but there’s a rebellion going on in the barn door cabinet in my entryway, and I was in the middle of it.

I use the cabinet to hold paint supplies, but the cabinet could only hold so many containers, and I had crossed that line.

Every time I open the cabinet, a container comes flying out at me, and I knew a paint explosion on the floor was in my future if I didn’t come up with more  storage for some of them.

I didn’t want to spend any money, so I came up with a pallet project to solve my paint supplies storage problem.

Remember the window flower boxes and rustic hanging crates my husband made?

Well, I had three more of them that I’d never done anything with, and they were the perfect size to hold my painting supplies.

They don’t take up much wall space, but they hold a lot of containers, so now the supplies that are in my entryway cabinet aren’t throwing a fit and trying to escape anymore.

If my supplies are happy … I’m happy! 🙂

I’m a monthly contributor at My Repurposed Life, where I posted the tutorial to make this pallet project, so I hope you’ll pop over and say “hi” there!

  1. Clever of you to not line them up so you have extra surfaces to put hooks, etc. Great idea!!

    Cute and useful shelves. And I want that book of pallet projects! I have a question, though. I went over to where the enamelware container with the handle is listed and when I clicked on the listing it came up with price and description, etc. When I looked at the photos underneath the larger photo there was a different enamelware pail listed with the same description. So now I’m not sure which one is for sale. Can you clarify? Thanks.
