On to another topic. Pallets. I cannot believe all that I have seen today created from recycled pallets. Yes, you heard right. Those wooden supports that are typically found outside of dumpsters ready to be grabbed, yeah those. I have always looked at them and wondered... hmmm, what can I do? We all know that I'm really not all that inventive. Sure, I can follow an easy tutorial to a T. But, I'm not coming up with grand ideas of how to turn trash into treasure.
And then I saw this.
I wasn't even looking too closely before I pinned it. After a closer look... it's a pallet. Wow! Now, there is no tutorial for this particular table, but I have found several others that can be adapted. I am in love. So after thumbing around Etsy I ran across some more really great finds.
And a chair.
This fab stool.
And this cute bench (and dog!).
Aren't those awesome? Most of the pics are from an Etsy shop found here. I am really thinking of attempting some sort of outdoor table for the patio. There isn't much more room back there, but what the heck.
And lastly, I really need some help with the organization of my projects. I have at least 3 projects that I am in the middle of and am coming up with new ideas daily. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. Working full time and going to school (although that will officially be over with this week!!!) haven't left much time for me to actually get motivated to work around the house. Heck, I'm lucky if I clean it up each afternoon, much less make a new mess by dragging out supplies for a project. But, I need to get it all organized and come up with a system so that something actually gets completed. That's my task today, since I am home sick. Oh, did I not mention that right now I feel like I have been hit by a truck mixed with the silly feeling I get in my stomach from DayQuil. Yuck! I definitely don't feel well enough to go outside and complete the patio redo that has evolved from simple to complex. So for now, it's just me and the computer and attempting to gain some order in my life!
Until next time.
