Sneak peak at my Free Pallet headboard

This weekend my dear hubby started building a headboard for me from some pallets.
The best thing is they are FREE!!

He worked so hard in the hot Florida sun
taking apart 2 pallets.
It is almost complete, but still not perfect!
I am also thinking about adding a pallet shelf to the wall opposite the bed.

I love the rustic look! Old wood, some burlap and candles and
I am all set!

What's on my Mantle

 I am starting to get anxious about decorating for fall.
Maybe it is the HOT HOT summer, but I am ready!
 Now all I need is some fall colors like autumn leaves and acorns to get a more
fally feeling.

T I just love burlap!! So many things you can make with it and it is very cheap!
My favorite!!

One more week and it back to school. I am so excited about the new school year and I know
the kids are too!!

Pottery Barn knock off sign

Guess what?!?
I think I figured out how to use my cricut!!
I know.. I know... it is pretty easy!!
I guess you can say I am a quitter. If I have a hard time learning something new,
I just give up. I do eventually get back to it!

I was given a Cricut for Christmas from my mother in law a couple of years ago, and played with
it a few times, then just got busy with the kids and such.
The kids and I put it on the kitchen table and just started playing with it.
I made a few numbers of various sizes, painted a piece of plywood with
spray chalkboard paint- and there it is!!
My Pottery Barn sign. A much smaller version of course!!
I love it on top of the pallet shelf!!

My Free Pallet shelf

I found pallet heaven!! All the pallets I want, for free!!
I am super excited and decided my first pallet I would use for a picture shelf.
There are so many ideas out there and next on our list is a
pallet fence and then a pallet sofa and coffee table for my back yard.

We are also working on a crate coffee table which is super cool to have!!
Summer is here now and it is hot.
Stay cool !
