Now this is a unique use of pallets from Laura Blechle and White Flag Christian Church in St. Louis, MO.
This is their version of the popular reclaimed wood wall. They made it from free pallets that they found at a local recycling center. They were then cut apart using a Sawzall. They were afraid that they would not have enough reclaimed wood, so they began with a base of longer cedar boards that they had left over from another stage design.
Their inspiration came from Journey Church and their Over Throne design. Their walls were actually 5 sections, each 8’w x 12’h. Once they were all screwed together, the total wall length was 40’. It was 2×4 construction faced with thin plywood. The slats were attached to the wall using a nail gun.
The clock was added by staining a large, dark circle onto the wall. The roman numerals were made from extra reclaimed slats that we whitewashed. The clock hands were cut from hardboard and painted off white. The clock hands do not move – they were nailed on. Lastly, they added a few real trees with tree stands built from extra lumber and painted black.
