Pallet reuse!

Ok I know that this has nothing to do with an rv but I wanted to share what I did to the archway to my hallway in my home. I found a place that has a ton of broken pallets that they just want to get rid of so I stopped by and grabbed a few and used the slats to do this!! Sorry I know this is all over Pinterest and everything else but it actually turns out really neat!!

we have a pallet plant that recycles them in to wood stove pellets
I just burn them as they make nice Bonfire's

Looks very nicely done. Do you have a photo taken further back that shows the entire archway from a distance you could share?
Offers that old barn wood look.

Cool idea. Better than using them for bonfires in campgrounds.

Makes good fire starters when splintered. Your job looks good.

Yes, indeed, pallets make good bonfires. A few years ago a nearby pallet plant's outside inventory caught fire. It took over a week to put it out. Luckily it was in an isolated area so the fire didn't spread.

In many Federal and state campgrounds it is illegal, or soon to be illegal to use pallets for fires. I'm sure there are plenty of private ones that outlaw pallet fires too.
