Pallet turned Patio Shelf

 Hey everyone! What a beautiful sunny day...spray painting weather! hahaha...Loved it.  
First things First!

Valentine's day! Yay.
Holly I will email you for your mailing address,
 Instead of painting, I found an old pallet, there are quite a few under feed bags by the barn...dragged it up to the house...

and decided I wanted to make a patio shelf for our back porch.
Sprayed it off for several minutes after all it was down by the barn.

Just a few nails, a hammer and a hand saw...
nailing nails into wood with a hammer is good for one's soul..
Releases tension, frustration....sour attitude!
 So I decided it was 'PALLET THERAPY',  plus I ended up with a shelf for my porch.

I attached a plant hook up on the left side, and hung a mason jar wrapped with wire for a handle.
I hammered a few nails to just to hang tools, trowels, etc.

This is awesome! I love the look of the whole thing! You did a great job! I would love to have you link it up at my first link party going on now. I hope to see you there.


Love this idea! Living on a farm, I can think a zillion places I could use something like this. Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Sher

Yippee! I let out a silent AM scream when I saw my name!!! Thank you so much, Debbie! :)

And that pallet idea? You clever girl! It's Marvelous! My boys made a fence out of pallets one but I never saw a shelf in one. Now that you've done it- it's right there! To me, these type of creations are on par with a sculpter who sees what's there with different eyes. ♥

Oh you are the cleverest girl. I love the worn patina of the wood.

Love, love this. This pallet has the look of barn board, beautifully weathered.
Great idea.
Thanks for sharing.
