How To Make A Rustic Pallet Cabinet
Submitted by Shabby Love
Remember the pallet cabinet my hubby built me back in October?!?
Guess what? He made me another one to go in between our fridge and stove! Here’s what the space looked like before.
This time, he built me one with drawers! Here’s his process. Let me know if you have any questions on how he made it.

Dividers for the drawers
Inside view of the 2×2’s he installed so the drawers would pull out easily
Construction of the drawers. He added thin luan to the bottoms. (Sorry no picture of that)
I used a vinegar and steel wood mixture to stain the wood
Then I painted it white and sanded it with steel wool
Looks beautiful! How are the drawers? Any difficulty pulling them out?
The drawers work great! They pull out easily and the 2 x 2’s help keep them from tipping up or down and creates a nice track to slide them back in easily.
Awesome little set of drawers. I think Mr. Shabby Love is on to something.
That’s very cool! I like the look of the unsanded wood and the rustic paint.
I absolutely love this! Awesome! I am in the midst of my first pallet project; I covered my kitchen walls 1/2 way up and chair rail. it is coming out great, better than I had even imagined. Everyone who has come into our house has had nothing but wonderful things to say about it and can’t believe it was done with pallets, I can share pictures if you would like! I first saw your cabinet when I was looking for ideas to create a bathroom vanity out of pallets considering the rustic vanity I was looking at was $1,600.00 and not in my budget at all! Your cabinet has inspired me, thank you! Then today I came across this wonderful set of drawers! Do you have instructions/measurements to share? Thank you again for the inspiration! And the beautiful rustic creativeness!!!!
I don’t have measurements but Ana white might have something! Good Luck!
