"Building with Wood Pallets are all the rage, and I love how cool and rustic they are, so I was excited about the idea. One problem though, Wood Pallets are often times too rough looking with broken pieces and the slats are too far apart. He [my husband] assured me that he knew of a place that sold Wood Pallets and they weren’t all built with large openings." -- Liz from Hoosier Homemade
