Pallet Decor

When I stumbled across this picture on Pinterest last week, I KNEW I had to make one! I asked at Restore if they had a pallet I could buy. They said no, but that they had a pile of them next to their old store they just moved from and I could go take whatever I wanted for free! Yippee! I was there buying some french doors and an old door for the wedding I'm decorating, so I was there by myself with a truck. I'm nothing if not determined, so I went over there and loaded that dirty, spider-filled thing all by myself! I tried to just hose it off, but it didn't do the trick. My hubby was nice enough to get out his power washer and spray it off yesterday. The two inside boards on each side were originally in the middle of the pallet. I pried them up myself with a pry bar and a hammer. Then I moved them over to the sides and re-hammered them in.

Today my hubby helped me hang it! It took a lot of measuring and stud-finding but we got it!

I ABSOLUTELY love it!! I hung up my pictures on it, and it looks great!

I used to have a huge picture of an outdoor market here and I still love it, but with all of my house updates, it didn't "go" anymore. One more thing in my big yard sale pile! I re-hung my candle holders and bought some white tapers to replace my orange ones that matched the picture. I hope you like it...I am totally in love!

Linking up to Tatertots and Jello!

  3. that looks great!!! thanks for sharing! stop by my blog when you have time. :) happy sunday!

  4. I like it...I really do. Not long ago I told my hubby (who grew up a farm boy) about the new trend in decorating with pallets. He told me that is one thing he's putting his foot down on concerning my decortating. :-( Oh, well. If it's just one thing, I guess I can live with it. Big points for your hubby, tho! And it really looks great...I like the pictures hung on it. Good job!


  5. Out in the Garage building it right now. I got my pallet from a really nice man who looked at me like I was Crazy when I told him what I was going to do with it. I promised to take him a picture when I finished it. Lol

  6. What a great idea! I would love to feature this on Reduce, Reuse, Upcycle. Feel free to stop by and grab a featured button. Thanks!
