Sometimes as much as I love something or want to save money and repurpose an item.  There comes a time when I say to myself.  Don’t waste your time!  Just get rid of it!

I love Pallet Signs.  Making them yourself is pretty easy too.  With a few nails and paint you can really transform those old pallets.  First, let me just say, don’t focus on getting the best pallet.  Sometimes the crappier ones end up being the coolest to use.  Especially if you are going for the burnt pallet sign look.
