We built this portable, folding pallet wall for a booth in which to promote Steph's book at a professional conference. There was never any question we would DIY all the elements of the booth!
Steph had this idea for a pallet wall and other elements, and I just went along with what she wanted. Actually, I really never had a clear idea of the end result, but just completed the tasks as she gave them to me.
It wasn't until everything was done and put together that I saw the "vision!" Read on to see how we made it and then check out some of the applications it could have in your own home.
Assembled: 82” high x 38-1/4” wide x 26.5” depth (at base)
Each pallet before cut: 54” x 40”
Each pallet after cut: 38-1/4” x 40”
(2) 32.5” with 45 degree angle on both sides
Cover for base 29-1/4” x 14-3/4”
Steph is attaching the back supports with long bolts and nuts. This was another feature so that the entire thing could be taken apart and stored. Steph is using the Milwaukee M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Stubby 3/8 in. Impact Wrench. This tool, that fits into tight spaces, proved to be the MVP of this build. We even took it with us to the conference site to aide in putting together our booth.
It was a little tricky to attach the poster holder pieces. Steph had to go under and behind to secure the pieces. She using the Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Gen II 18-Gauge Brad Nailer to secure them into place. This tool is compact and lightweight, making it perfect for this awkward situation!
We know this project is very specific for us, but we presented it as we thought others might see a way to use it in their own businesses or homes. If you're a craft seller, it would be perfect for your next show.
Here are some ways it could be used:

you're missing the 2x4 info... how long were the pieces you cut for the stand? there aren't really any instructions for this part and it looks like the most tricky part. thanks!

Do you use this outdoors and if so how do you keep the wind from blowing it over?

I would think a sandbag at the back would help if it was a windy day. But the slats will allow air to pass theough
