Our old kitchen was looking tired after 20 years of work and kids.. we had re decorated a few times but this time I had to do more..

I have access to lots of good almost new pallets and packing crates and I really like working with them as they are free (leaves cash for tools right..) I'd picked up a second hand wine rack made of galvanised steel and timber which I stripped , painted and reassembled it then designed a cabinet to fit around it.. The internals are made of off cuts of coated board so they can be wiped clean and the doors/carcass were made from pallet wood..

next I had to make a few hundred of these from the interesting parts of pallets..

Finished Wall and cabinet just waiting to dry off properly before waxing.... the other cabinets were the originals with new/modified doors repainted and positioned..

I know it's a little rustic but if fits with our home.. The house itself was built by two brothers in 1848 with stone walls 3 feet thick in places.. And it sits on bedrock..
