Now, I’ll admit that my Mister does most, well, all of our DIY projects that involve power tools.  But I am thinking about getting a few tools of my own and becoming a little more hands-on.  But I certainly enjoy doing these projects with him, and I’m so thankful he likes to help.

The first thing you need to do, of course, is decide how big you want it to be.

Then you cut your boards at the desired length.  For our project, we needed seven boards, all the exact length.

You can see from the picture below that we doubled the end pieces to make it sturdier, but that’s entirely up to you.  Then we spaced out the three boards evenly down the front to hang the turpentine boxes from.

You could actually use a pallet as-is, but we didn’t want ours to be very heavy since we were hanging it on the wall.

I found the turpentine boxes at one of our Peaches to the Beaches thrifting adventures.  Scott used screws to secure them to each piece of board.
