How to build a pallet accent wall in an afternoon. Includes tips on safe pallets to use, and building wire pathways for mounting a TV.
Wood accent walls have been popular for a long time because of the warmth and texture they add to a room, infusing it with a rustic cabin vibe. Because pallets can be found or obtained for little-to-no cost, they can be an inexpensive option to completely transform the look and feel of a room, in just an afternoon.
Step 1: Take Apart the Pallets
Using a reciprocating saw with a metal-cutting saw blade, cut through the nails that hold the pallet in place (four locations along one board). You will need to slide the blade between the pallet frame and the pallet plank where the nails attach, then turn on the saw to cut through. The saw should cut through the nails in about 30 seconds, so if it takes longer, then you are probably cutting at an angle and cutting wood. Readjust and make sure the blade is straight.
