A pallet in the laundry?

Hi, again...

Yes, I am still busy..busy..busy with the housekeeping job around the house.  Today, I'm in the laundry area.  I have a very small laundry area at the back of my house.  How small?...Hmm..I'll say too small to fit in a single bed!!!   Yes....That's small.

Actually, it's not too bad..but recently after I bought in a small pallet there...(I reused some of the wood from the pallet for my entryway-redo-project ... now it's seem to be a bit eyesore at the laundry, but I would like to keep it as the wood may become useful for the next 'whatever' impromptu DIY project.

So, I use some 'S' hook to hang the pallet at an empty wall there...right at the window of the bathroom.  I don't want to use nails as all my laundry walls already been furnished with tiles so 'S' hook will be the best alternative for FAST, EASY and REMOVABLE.

Once the pallet was up...I soon realized that it could be very useful.  See?

I was overjoyed!!! Just what I need, a place to hang all
my 'recyclable materials' after wash..socks..clothes pin..
hangers...and I love the lowest part of it..just good
for hanging washed door mats.  Love it!

Hmm... So, no harm to add some more love on it...

A sweet sign for the pallet!
