Whether it’s an ugly pattern or cheap material, bad carpeting can completely destroy home decor.
The Instructables user below suffered from that problem, until she decided to construct a brand new floor with her bare hands and some inexpensive wood.
“Our pantry floor was a disaster. Or, the tiny scary purposeless room we turned into a pantry had this horrible cheap carpet in it,” wrote user Humboldtartdept. “Stopping by a pallet recycler for another project, I discovered these cut block pieces. Slowly over time I amassed enough for the whole floor.”
We’ve shown you the various creative projects that can be made with pallets — who could forget the pallet bar? This one below is another for the books.
The pallet wood helped transform an unattractive room into a rustic paradise. There’s really no need to hire home remodeling specialists or construction workers when you can do this yourself. And the best part is, it wasn’t even that expensive!
“It took some effort, it took some time, but in the end, we’re super thrilled with it,” she wrote. “We’re really enjoying this floor and it’s perfect for our pantry. In the end, this project cost less than $100 for an approximately 100 sq. ft. room with all the wood being free.”
