Introduction: Pallet Wood Basic Bookshelf

For our bedroom I made a bookshelf out of old pallet wood. I stained it with one layer of paint. Because of the wood soaked up the paint I got this old whitewash look.  It’s a pretty straight forward construction so I think the pictures will speak for themselves. I like the basic  look of it and it combines well with the Buddhistic  /oriental style of the decorations we have in the room.

Very nice! The washed-out paint look is perfect.
