How many pallets does it take to cover a wall?

Should I seal my pallet wall?

Pallets without this stamp (left) probably aren’t a safe choice for indoor walls or surfaces where you might sit or eat.
How do you hang a pallet sign?
There are two ways you could hang up your sign. One, you could find the studs in your wall and drill in screws stud width apart. Or two, you could put drywall anchors in and put screws into those wherever you want. Either way works to hold your sign up.
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.
