I knew I had tons of left-over material from previous home improvement projects that needed to be repurposed. This year I needed to stay on a budget and what better way to do that than by recycling as much stuff around my house to make something really great!  After carefully spending four hours at Hobby Lobby, I finally decided on what I was going to make!  I knew I had all the right material to make my very own, DIY Wood Pallet Memo Board!+ Here’s what I had to work with.

A wood pallet, tons of unused wood, and Sample size can of cherry wood stain from our patio project
Sample cans of indoor decor paint and cork boards from our kids room projects
Empty glass jars around the kitchen

+ What you’ll need:
1 Sheet of Magnetic Chalkboard
Cork Board(s)
Glue Gun
1 Sheet Medium Grade Sand Paper
Paintbrushes (optional)
Drop Cloth (optional)


Step 1
Determine the size you want your memo board to be and using a hot glue gun, staple gun, or nails: Anchor 4 or 5 wood pallet boards onto two wood pieces.
+ Achieve the look! Leave spaces in between each wood plank ranging between 1cm to 3cm and stagger wood pallet planks slightly from each other

Step 2
Using medium grain sand paper, smooth out the wood planks as much as possible.
+ You can also follow using fine grain sand paper for an extra smooth surface!

Optional:  Stain your wood pellet by painting the front side of the memo board with your chosen wood stain. Allow to dry completely before turning over and painting the backside and edges.  Drying Time: 1-2 hours
