Pallet Parquet - new floor

(in progress=sneak preview) In keeping with the philosophy of this project, we've chosen to pursue the repurposing & recycling of shipping pallets to replace the deteriorated floor we inherited. All the pallets we have used to date have been retrieved from the trash or donated by businesses overflowing with them and glad to be rid of them. Along the way we've discovered a great source of beautiful woods often tossed or neglected into oblivion. These pallets embody a synoptic story with the container itself. They create a wonderful patchwork of colors, marks, paints and other impressions that soften the container's interior and enter into a dialogue with the object that contains it. Photos:
