Upcycled wood pallet #2, Newbie party started!

loving these upcycled wood pallet projects.

Happy Sunday! This weekend sure flew by for us.  
We were non stop busy with the kids,and parties.  Certainly, no complaints here.

First Let me announce the winner for the burlap bags.  
Using, and not knowing how to generate it to my computer....the LUCKY winner was #47, Stephanie!
Congrats! Please email me with your address and I will get those out to you asap.

You remember my second pallet that I scored from Lowes home and Garden center...
(FREE and you can too)
the first one I scored is HERE...
and that was a fun makeover.

I was browsing the net and pinterest for some inspiration..
I knew I wanted it to be an outdoor pallet, because quite frankly our house has no room for one MORE thing! 
At least that is what Mr. Doo's thinks...

I also knew I wanted it to be a tad colorful and a touch of whimsy....
hence the rubber garden boots near by,
...they were Free from a friend who was getting rid of them, and I thought, hey I'll take those and do something with them....

It has to stay like this for a week or two and then I can move it around and lean it against the house, or wall, that way the roots will be taken by the dirt.

So there you have something that was kicked to the curb, given a new life.

I will be tweaking it a bit and perhaps sanding the wood a little. 
 I used a colored stain on the wood like we did our outdoor chairs...

so cute Debbie. I might have to steal that idea. The dogs, chickens, ducks and goats get to ALL my flowers so that might just be a way to add some beauty that they will leave alone! Great job!

I mentioned to hubby yesterday that I would like to pick up a wood pallet. He casually said that he'd look through work pallets to see if there were any in good shape because they have them at work and they get sent out for recycling!! Can't believe it. I have no idea how they get the pallets but I'm excited. I've got a vision............

Love the pallet, love love love those boots ... I've been collecting pallets myself to make a vertical garden wall but I need a few more pallets before I am ready.

Thanks for giving us newbies our own link party. I've posted about my gallery wall hanging tips.

Looking forward to visiting the other contributors today.

Love that idea for the pallet. I just pickup 42 new pallet Saturday from Appalachia Power Co. here in Va. First I'm going to repair my mother's redwood loveseat and lounge with the new pallets. Then I think I will try to do one like yours. Thanks for sharing. Lynda
