Once the pallet was dismantled and reassembled. I lightly sanded it to remove some of the splintered edges, but I wanted to maintain as much of the distressed look as I could. I even strategically placed the wider board on the outside since it still had actual bark on the edge which looks really cool.
Once that was done I painted the boards with white paint. I added some water to create more of a white wash. Then added light touches of blue and green (since those are her accent colors). Her bathroom was just recently painted a light sage green, so it looks really pretty against it.
The best thing about this project? The entire unit was constructed at no cost. The pallet was retrieved from a building site. The shelves were constructed with old boards we had in the garage, and the paint we already had as well!
I found the majority of the knick-knacks at Hobby Lobby on sale and/or clearance. So with a little bit of labor (but, mostly love) and minimal cost, this pallet shelf makes for a sweet accent piece!
