What You Need to Know When Working with Pallets

I can not hide it. And I’m not ashamed. I love pallets. 

If you walked into our very…rustic (that’s a good word for a dilapidated farm-house, right?) … house, your eyes would first see the built-in cabinet made with pallets and old barn wood. It has been a great addition in helping the chaos of our affectionately named “dog porch”. 

And when you climb the stairs and enter the kitchen, your eyes will fall upon the fridge, oh, and the cabinets built to fit the area next to the fridge

And soon, I will have redone all my kitchen cabinet doors to match, and I have an exciting plan for my desk that will also be a window seat area that will keep contained our future home schooling and business items. 

See? You can’t just stop with one! 🙂

But there are a few things to know when working with pallets before you dive in. … [Read More]

Fun Growth Chart

This growth chart was a fun project. It brought back all those memories from childhood that are sweet and beautiful. Memories of Dad that someday I alone will remember and cherish. Today, memories are caught for all time in the touch of a finger on a screen, but the memories in our minds: those are filled with an array of emotions and smells, events reenacted that dance around behind our eyes.

Pallet and Barn Wood Built In Cabinet

Pallet and Barn Wood Built In Cabinet

The porch. The dog porch. The place where all the dog hair, dirt, and mud dance around with glee. Also the place where tools, equipment, saddles and cowboy gear, gardening items and plants and all the boots, hats, gloves and coats pile up. This room needed help. A homemade built-in cabinet was just what it needed!

Pallet Cabinets

Pallet Cabinets

OH! How I love before and after pictures! What an eyesore we had before I made these pallet cabinets! Not only was it an eyesore, it was inconvenient and wasted a lot of space! Organization is key in keeping a house moving along smoothly, but you must have the proper items to work with to get to that point! So, break out the pallets and get to work!

Pallet Toddler Bed

Pallet Toddler Bed

We had an old bed, just pleading to be given a new look. I have a fetish for pallets and just happened to have a few lying around. Our little boy needed a pallet toddler bed and I was bound and determined that his “nursery” would be finished by his second birthday.  So project after project and pallet after pallet, I have been working on his cowboy room.

Pallet Window Shutters

I value sleep.  Really.Value.Sleep.  I also am an introvert by nature and need my daily refueling alone time, which takes place perfectly during nap time! Each of the kids rooms are dark and quiet and have a fan.  

To help block out the Montana sun, I made pallet window shutters for my son’s room.  Our Montana sun, during the summer months is up ridiculously early…maybe 4 am? I guess I’m not even sure! I’ve never been up that early to greet it “good morning.” I do know when it sets, however, because I LOVE spending my evenings in my garden. I sadly say, “good night, sun” around 10 pm.

Organize that cupboard!

Rarely do I have any extra money to remodel and work on the house projects I am constantly dreaming up! (Thank you Pinterest! My poor husband!)  So, sometimes you just have to start with what you have. An unorganized cupboard and, well, pallets!  Pallets are usually easy to come by, relatively easy to take apart (especially with the tool my husband made for me), and are a great way to turn something old into something new and useful. So, I set out to organize that cupboard. You know, THAT cupboard. We all have one, don’t we?
