I like this for my office! Dump A Day 24 Amazing Uses For Old Pallets! Ok, it's not technically re-purposed decor for and event. but it gives you an idea on how to use old pallets in for your new decor!
Shanty Hall Tree Bench for the Entryway.use the old door from Chuck's old place and build bench from pallets! Will paint the window part of door with chalkboard paint or maybe install mirror. Add hooks & baskets under bench.
