  1. Remove the hardware from the back of the pallets.
  2. Basecoat the pallets with Nutmeg. Allow them to dry and then sand to distress.
  3. Cut four 24" pieces of rope and four 12" pieces of rope.
  4. Tie a knot in one end of each rope. Thread the long pieces of rope through the top space between the first two slats on the vertical pallet.
  5. Thread the shorter pieces through the bottom two slats on the vertical pallet.
  6. Attach the horizontal pallet by threading the rope pieces through the front of the pallet through the same slats as the vertical pallet. Tie a knot. Adjust the knots so the horizontal pallet is flat. The two pallet should now be at a 90° angle.
