So, as we all know,  wooden pallets are all the rage. However, we’re here to shed some light on the negative side of this chic style option. First off, these wooden pallets are prime breeding places for bacteria, namely Salmonella and E coli. Yikes!

Another fuss factor would be having to keep them dry at all times! Getting them wet, or damp, results in some pretty nasty fungus growth. Not cool.

Okay, so aside from being incredibly chic and totally budget friendly (yay!),  using wooden pallets couldn’t be any easier! They are so versatile, and you can work them into any space fairly easy, thanks to its warm and rustic nature. An added bonus? If you ever end up damaging your wooden pallet, no sweat! You can have them repaired in a jiffy, or leave it be, because they live for the worn and torn look. It even makes them look better! What’s not to love?
