Buffalo check and Plaid placemats for a fall or everyday table

read

I really do love my big metal kitchen island that also doubles as a table. And I also really love my pallet wood sawhorse office desk where a kitchen table would normally go.  All that works in this house. It really does. However I secretly miss having a kitchen table at times. I’m picturing a big […]

Sign stenciled fabric for the pallet wood chairs

read

Blame this one on Bliss Ranch’s AMAZING chairs. And then came I Restore Stuff’s crazy cool carpet. And then there’s Front Porch Mercantile’s decadent bench idea… Oh my goodness. I resolved to try those ideas somewhere! I just didn’t know where yet. Until this past week… As you know from my last post, I just finished pressure […]

Summer patio revamp with a reclaimed wood farm table

read

I can’t believe I’m actually sitting on a newly painted, AND clean patio, compared to just one short week ago! It must have been all that rest we took this summer. I knew once home I’d be antsy to get productive, but I had no idea I’d be doing this! And that just goes to […]

Motivation through pressure washing the patio

So I grabbing the laptop, and taking full advantage of the gorgeous weather, a flower filled outdoor patio office became my main stomping grounds. To be honest, I can’t stand being indoors on a nice day. But […]

A pallet perfect little hideaway for a writer

read

I had not yet taken the time to do a thing with the pallet sofa or patio furniture. Our summer hasn’t hit yet so the patio simply became a dumping ground for a bunch of misfits. But tonight the clouds finally blew over and the sun came out! Having also been suddenly gifted with an […]

The ‘change my mind’ bistro table (with pallet sofa)

read

I had a rough Friday. My last firetruck of the day didn’t go quite as planned (a post on my line of work is HERE) , so after filling up an entire garbage can of destroyed striping, I was ready for an easy weekend. You’d think 20 years in the business would have me a […]

You might say I have a special place in my heart for pallets these days. This pallet wood outdoor sofa reveal showcases my favorite place to sit! While this sofa is a little bit more involved to build, there is also a simple chair version below that took only 2 hours to make with two full pallets! If you […]
