What can I put behind a pallet wall?
Do you think putting plywood behind the pallets would work to save my wall in the long run? There’s a few different ways you could do this. You can attach plywood to the walls, screwing it to the wall into the studs, then attach the pallet boards to the plywood with adhesive and nails.

Should I seal my pallet wall?
Seal it. I don’t think the boards need cleaning or staining. The rustic look of the lumber is part of the appeal. However, you do want to seal the wall with polyurethane so that the boards don’t gray over time and you can clean it better.
How do you cover an uneven wall?
If you don’t want to paint or wallpaper your lumpy walls, the easiest way to camouflage the bumpy texture is to hang photos, artwork or other framed items to cover the problem areas. Because the uneven texture may span a large section of wall, one or two framed pieces are probably not enough to hide the lumps.
How many pallets does it take to cover a wall?
We filled an 11 x 8 foot wall and required approximately seventeen (17) pallets to make it happen. You must remember to account for waste because some slats will inevitably get damaged in the process. Once the slats are stripped and sanded, it’s time to prep the wall for installation.
What is the OSHA fine for leaning pallets?
Leaving empty pallets on the sales floor can result in expensive OSHA penalties. As of 2013, OSHA can assess penalties ranging from $50 to $70,000. The amount of the penalty depends on OSHA’s view of the potential for serious injury because of the violation.
