Upcycled wood pallet project
Oh, I would say a few months back, while I was browsing the garden section at Lowes,
I spied a wood pallet near their trash.
Did you know you can score these Pallets for free?
YES, you can in fact, if you drive in the back of the stores, you can find stacks of them.
Take a look at this project, then head on over to my
Pallet diy Gallery
to see some more!My garden pallet was even featured over at Houzz!~
I asked the cashier if I could have it.
She said sure, and then asked why?
I said I am going to do something with it, but I have no clue yet!
She laughed and gladly handed it over to me.
It took me until today to figure out just what I was doing with it!
Old white, Annie Sloan paint in hand,
some craft paints, and I was good to go!
Two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk paint, or any paint will do.
First, I cleaned it real good with some simple green.
Next, I painted it Old White, two coats
Next, process after drying,
I took these two color craft paints, an old rag and just ragged those colors on.
I then sanded it, and put the dark wax on.
Hey with cows all the rage now, I just so happened to have these pretty cheese plates for years now..
They used to be displayed around my kitchen window.
I had that look for a long while, but it needed a change.
This pallet took on such an aged appearance.
I love the hints of red, copper and dark wax coming through.
Makes a perfect little display shelf.
Paired up with my $3.00 Goodwill table…I would say I done good!
Have a great day gals!
Thanks for stopping by.
If you are not a regular here, I should would love for you to stick around.

How in the world did you tear your pallet apart?!?!? I’ve been trying for days and getting nowhere….I know I’m not very strong physically but this is ridiculous…any advice?
Some of the pallets were loose already. There is a you tube video on how to tear apart a pallet. They are extremely difficult.
