This is a pretty great "up-cycle" done by my super talented husband for the front office of our family business, Repla Prints. He broke down old pallets (FREE!!) and aged them by rubbing them with steel wool that had been soaking in apple cider vinegar before putting them onto the wall. He used the ugly existing desk and made an amazing privacy cover around it. The top is 2x6's glued and clamped together and sanded for a smooth finish. For around $200 (the price of some lumber and paint) we have a makeover we love!
Thanks, Brad & Celestyn!
