Navigating the web we have found a myriad of options. We can, for example, leave our pallet as it is. Simply sanding it, because as we know, they always have areas that are quite chipped.

Dimensions should not worry too much. As a general rule pallets are large, but in addition, we can always end up joining several. In addition, the good thing about this material is that when varnishing it, we can choose the tone of wood that we like the most. Moreover, if we want to paint it of any color we will not have any problem, because its porous surface perfectly accepts the painting.
