We called the cast-off trend last year. We saw beds and tables being made out of cast-offs like wood cable spools and wood pallets. We're adding one more cast-off-to-furniture project to our vault.
That's a standing front-facing bookshelf made from two wood pallets above. We found this on the talented Ana White's website made by one of her readers. Unfortunately, there isn't a how-to for this project, but Anna does have a ton of other great uses for wood pallets. You can check some of them out here.
