Pallet Wood Crates & Easy Image Transfer

Use upcycled wood to make these decorated vintage-looking crates!
Just as the author of the tutorial I’m about to present, I am in love with upcycled wood. We’ve already presented you a few examples of creative use of pallets and crates. Today I’ve got a bit different idea of using wood from discarded pallets. Ananda from “A Piece of Rainbow” blog, prepared a very comprehensive tutorial for making crates from pallet wood, and, what’s more, transferring images onto these boxes using only wax paper and inkjet printer.

I hope you’ll find this technique interesting enough to try it. If you decide to make these decorated crates, post pictures of your finished projects directly on our website.
