Pallet Christmas Countdown

November 21, 2013


Christmas is a comin'! In less than 10 days, we'll be counting down the 25 days till the arrival of Christmas.  To make the countdown a bit more fun and bearable, since for every child (and maybe a few adults) thinks the 25 days leading to the special day are SO LONG, I created a Countdown Calendar in the shape of a tree using my favorite material, pallets and a few other leftover scraps of wood.  Check it out... Isn't it so colorful?  The ornaments truly make it come alive. When Lowe's challenged the Creative Team to come up with something for the Holidays, I was so excited to … [Read more...]

DIY: Pallet Gardening Table

August 9, 2013


Why yes, another pallet project coming your way. I've only created 328 pallet projects thus far.  well maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration... Anyway, I've been busy with creating something new and different using pallets. What did I make? A Pallet Gardening Table... I've never seen something like this before (maybe it's on pinterest, but lately it's been crushing my creative juices so I try to stay clear) Why did I create it? Because I needed a spot of my own to do my gardening and potting.  As I've said before, gardening isn't my strong-suit, but when I do enjoy it and … [Read more...]

DIY: Vertical Pallet Garden by @Jenna_Burger,

The warmer weather has got me movin' and groovin' outdoors.  This past weekend I got my DIY mojo on for this months Lowe's challenge and created (what I think) is something pretty cool.  Check out my newly created Vertical Pallet Garden using colorful pots... Though the flowers are finally starting to peak through around the yard, I was in need of color NOW to start decorating my front porch for Spring.  I, of course, hit up my local Lowe's garden center to get my color fix.  It's still the early days of Spring, so the selection (at my local Lowe's in NY) was limited, but I was able to … [Read more...]

DIY: Monogrammed Chevron Pallet Tray

As a Blogger, finding support throughout the blogging community is important for blog growth, friendship, and creative inspiration. For the past several weeks, I've joined forces with a few fabulous DIY bloggers and we've been helping each other with various aspects of blogging.  Along with our helpful "chats", we were given a Blogging Challenge by Beckie of Infarrantly Creative to create a DIY project using specific materials - additional items could be added, but it was a must to use the required five. What did I create you ask? Well take a look... (and then keep on reading for the … [Read more...]

How to Make a Pallet Bookshelf

March 2, 2012


What a week it's been!  Is it really March already?  I'm still in February!  I really thought I would have the bathroom complete by now to reveal today, but (I know, here it comes) it's not done - boo hoo.  It's 95% there, but the finishing touches are still needed, and that's always the most important part.  So sorry to say, you'll have to wait a few more days... you don't mind, right? Instead, I have a fun, easy, and unique DIY project to share with you. In the midst of my son's room makeover, the bookcase he had wasn't fitting anymore, but he still needed something to hold his many of … [Read more...]
