Tel Aviv-based design studio Junktion focuses solely on creating new things from old stuff. They've upcycled a car trunk hood into a sofa, a collection of metal teapots and collanders into a chandelier, and old suitcases into medicine cabinets. But their most DIY-friendly project would have to be this pallet-turned-shoe rack.
Depending on the state and style of your pallet, you wouldn't have to do much more than clean it and (maybe) remove a few boards. You could even paint it if you're feeling fancy. Something like this would be perfect for mudrooms or garages: a dedicated spot for muddy yardwork shoes, hiking boots, cleats, etc. I like the idea of mounting it a little off the floor for a "cleaner" look, but leaning it against the wall would work as well. What do you guys think?
