One day, I looked on the side of my house
and what did my wondering eyes did I see,
It was about 5 years old and beat up.
But I saw potential and I started thinking how I could transform it into a great decorative piece in my home.
I love to display my seasonal dishes but in my new home I did not have a place for my hutch that I had in my kitchen before. Now, it is in my craft room. So, my dishes were in a cabinet with no hope of seeing the light of day.
Sad…..until I found this pallet.
Hope was restored!
I had seen this pallet shelving on Pinterest and loved it.
Is there such a thing as Pinterest knock offs?
If so, that is what I did.
I took my pallet and asked Mr. La-Dee-Da to beat out some parts of it leaving me with 2 shelves.
But I needed it to look good in my house and the old wood look was not working.
I went to Home Depot and bought wood stain.
I did not buy Red Oak but something similar.
I paid almost $5 for it.
I then stained my pallet.
I was so happy with it and soon Mr. La-Dee-Da was busy hanging it.
Look how handy he is!!!
After it was hung, I quickly pulled out my fall dishes and gave them a HOME!!!!
I have a thing for pumpkins when fall rolls around.
My pumpkin dishes and tea pot were all birthday gifts a few years back.
That is what happens when you have a fall birthday. You get fall gifts but I love them all.
I will never complain about getting them.
I love my pallet shelves and I can’t wait to decorate them for all seasons with my seasonal dishes.
I can also put picture frames on there, books….so many possibilities.
While we are in the dining room, I want to show you the table runner I made.
Sticking with my love of pumpkins, I used an old strip of burlap and added pumpkin fabric that I ruffled and used hot glue.
Easy and so simple.
I have more fall projects to show you but I wanted to give you a sneak peek.
I have my lantle(not a mantle, not a shelf, it is a ledge SO it’s a my Lantle) and front porch to show you soon.
But for now, I couldn’t wait to show you my pallet upcycle.
What do you think of pallet projects?
I am loving mine!!!
