Who knew that the splintery wood from shipping palettes could be redesigned into rustically hip key racks? The beauty of upcycling is that the most unexpected items are transformed into totally radiant and functional pieces. In this case, Six Fingers Studios hand picks, designs, cuts and polishes old wood into a neat key rack for a modern country home. The creator even hand stamps his company logo on the back.

The designer and creator, Nick, says he fell in love with the idea of "refining the raw and making the unwanted into something people desired." Shipping pallets are often discarded, however they are the major source of materials for Nick’s creations. Perhaps the shipping pallets’ rugged past is what brings with it the rustic look to Nick’s key racks. Each slightly differs in texture, color and appearance.
