Not much is needed for this project -- just some mismatched wood pallets, a drill, a level and some wall hooks. First, decide how many pieces of wood you need to cover your wall. It might help to lay your pieces out on the floor to see how you want them to fit together. Then, screw each board in place with a cordless drill, using a level to make sure your pieces are straight. Next, mark where you want to place your hooks and secure them using your drill. When you are done, all that's left to do is to hang everything back up. It's an easy way to make you feel instantly more organized.
