How to Get Pallets for DIY Pallet Wood Projects

Rustic Hand Towel Rack from Amanda Seghetti
Perfect for your farmhouse home or cottage, this rustic towel rack is one I made from a small piece of pallet wood and a hook. I cut a piece of pallet wood to my desired size, then sanded it to get rid of any splinters. I spray painted a standard towel/coat hook with rose gold spray paint, then drilled a hole to attach it to my board. Easy peasy, and cost way less than the ones I could’ve bought!
