Using a shipping pallet as a source of wood for your DIY project is cheap. Here is a kitchen organizer made of a single pallet, paint, chalkboard paint, 3 drawer pulls and 6 curtain rings. The pallet was cut, sanded, and covered with 3 coats of white paint. After that part of it was painted with chalkboard paint. Next, pulls and rings were applied using epoxy.
You can use such kitchen organize to store cookbooks, bottles of wine, take out menus, kitchen towels and many other things.
