Start by deconstructing your pallet. I used a crowbar to take mine apart but mine was pretty old and it came apart relatively easily. This pallet that had already been deconstructed from a previous project so I don’t have pictures of this step but you can find a good tutorial here.
After sanding, I painted the planks with a semi gloss white.
