You need to carry with lot of pallet slats while intending to do those interior pallet wall paneling projects with pallets, so deconstruct a big stock of pallets to gain a big deal of straight wooden lengths!
There are two A-frame slim top tables hired to sand the planks one by one, just put flat the over both supports and palm the electrical sander in hand to grit the wooden surfaces for overwhelming wooden glow, after sanding you will also not see any splinter popped up there!
Now the staining time, carry the removed, cleaned and well sanded planks and apply the darker coats of stain or wood oil to them, using varnish coats will also be rocking!
Cover the floors with old newspapers, old cloths or leftover rough sheets so stain spills will not spoil the floors! After applying stain coats or wood oil coats do let them well dried! Here wood oil has been used!
Use the old paint brushes, foam pieces or simple an old cloth for staining of pallet planks, the stain coats or oil coats would also provide more strength to wood along with a bewitching allure!
Leave some of planks blank in their natural wood tone however, some clear coats can be applied to avoid the wood from getting weathered early and also from getting damaged by water effects!
Now do the primary preparations for better wall paneling, install a rough skeleton first and do cover the wall with old fabric sheets for better results!
Add end wooden borders on both sides of the targeted wall area and mount the vertical wooden supports that will divide the in-between areas in equal parts so it would be easier now nail the pallet planks we fill add to fill up the entire wall area!
The white painted original cemented wall can be visible through the spacing among the pallet slats which can simply mar the look of entire wooden wall, to solve this issue a black fabric underlay cover has been installed that cover the entire selected wall area except the wooden pillars!
Now you can start adding those reconditioned pallet slats one by one in a flat manner to cover the wall area for a mind-blowing antique wood wall texture! Add one plank and just secure it there by adding nails, repeat this process for every new addition!
Some already made electrical outlets can be in your way, just cut the wooden out from there to reveal them over the wooden texture again to keep using them again in normal routines! Use the plastic pipe cut pieces to make those electrical outlets more graceful!
Here the area selected for TV screen holding has also been cut out to fit the hardware screen holding stand in. It has been done by cutting the wooden out in H-shape!
Here wooden slats have been coated with wooden oil so appear in a darker wood tone and this also helps to hide the imperfection if any! Do make the gaps for TV cables neat to avoid any inconvenience later in future!
Just pull the electrical cables out softly and neatly and avoid any twist in the cable, now use additional market bought electrical outlet boards or frames to build them again over the antique textured wooden wall!
Now just install the TV scree to wall by installing the hardware screen holding system first, now the accent wooden pallet media wall is ready to serve to all media and fun lovers!
This wooden pallet wall will not less than a theater in your living room if you just make it hold a big LCD TV screen, the overlay wood medium will also make it easy to install further shelves or hanging hooks so you can play more with this wooden wall creatively!
