DIY Pallet Wood Vertical Blinds -- What what"!





Aww yeah, the window treatment for our swanky in-progress library is done!

Right, so as we all know, I'm not big on the whole pallet bandwagon but I admit, pallet wood was the texture I wanted for this fancy pants DIY vertical blinds project.  Well, and heh, the wood was free.

Wait a sec, you made your own vertical blinds"!  Why yes I did.  And you can too.  It's very easy actually!

Here's my supply list:
pallet wood, extra long1" binder rings (aka loose leaf rings or book rings)swivel key tagstop plate connectors3/4" split ring hangars3/8" threaded rod, 1 /12" long1/2" diameter conduit20 gauge copper wire, brown
I picked up the swivel key tags from Home Depot, which were a special order online.  The copper wire came from Joann Fabrics.  The binder rings are from Office Max which I can't find on their website, but here are some.  Everything else came from Menards, well, sans the wood.

It took me quite a while to find the right swivel piece, I'll tell ya.  I looked at goodness knows how many options but felt these key rings had a good look, a good size, and hey, they swivel!  All important for vertical blinds, that swiveling action.

My total cost:  $29.00

Tools I used, which may vary for you, depending on what you have:
cordless screw gun3" circular saw (thanks Bob!)grinderrafter square1/8" drill bit1/4" drill bitFor this project, I visited a place near home that has pallet wood, where I met Twitchy.  Kindly, he let me have eight pieces of extra long wood for free.  

I began by getting the top plate connectors attached.  Based on my window frame depth, and the width of the wood, I found I needed to put the plates at the edge so that the wood could swivel and fold up like vertical blinds.  I used these screws to anchor the top plate connectors into the window frame which I already had.

Once the plates were secure, I screwed in the th...
