This necklace holder is made of used pine pallet wood leftovers. As Steve Ramsey from Mere Mortals said : ’’Never be affraid to paint your project.’’ I mixed green, white and gray paint and when dryed I sanded edges to get old look ‘Sabby chic’ style. I used french cleat system to hang it on the wall.
It was ordered by my wife and dughter.

I like it. The small boxes at the bottom are a nice area for more things as well

Nice design Ivan. Sometimes it calls for paint and this is a winner.

Ivan, very impressive. Paint is not always a bad thing. Some wood just cries out for it.

I like the look and you pulled it of perfectly !As an alternative I use several layers ( or coats ) of paint and then sand to show the wear that occurred overtime and a few marks make it more real looking yet .
