Pallet Cabinet Take 2

Remember the pallet cabinet my hubby built me back in October?!?


Guess what? He made me another one to go in between our fridge and stove! Here's what the space looked like before. 


This time, he built me one with drawers! Here's his process. Let me know if you have any questions on how he made it.

Dividers for the drawers

Inside view of the 2x2's he installed so the drawers would pull out easily

Construction of the drawers. He added thin luan to the bottoms. (Sorry no picture of that)




I used a vinegar and steel wood mixture to stain the wood
 
Then I painted it white and sanded it with steel wool

  1. This is so gorgeous. I love both your pallet projects. The newest one, looks lovely between the stove and frig, giving you much needed drawers. One never has enough storage in a kitchen. Tell you hubs he did a great job. How do you stain with vinegar and steel wool? Hope you will consider sharing this over at Sunday's Best going on now. Also now following you.

  22. I looove it! Where does he get the pallets? I'd love for my husband to make something like that. I've heard some of them have chemicals so I kinda got discouraged from making pallet adirondack chairs...but do you know anything about that? My husband is just starting out in woodworking...don't know that he'd know how to do drawers and all...did he use a pattern?

    found you at the blog hop...check out mine if you get the chance...

    This is amazing. Does he just break apart pallets and put them back together? I would love to know how you did the stain with vinegar and steel wool, too.

  33. I think your husband likes pallets as much as you do, and maybe it's his calling? This little cabinet is darn cute, you could sneak that in so many small areas where it would look great.
