Got more Wood? {Pallet projects}

Yes, I indeed know I get carried away when I get on a kick of something. Loving these wood pallet/wood projects.   
 Who can kick on FREE?  Certainly not me, and we shall not judge thee!
So, you recall last week, when I was joining in Donna's guts challenge I showed you this...

Just a simple painted and stenciled piece of wood left over from our outdoor project.

Well that day I painted two of them, why not I was in the mode.

First I painted in the same color blueish green stain.
Then I decided Sunday, I wanted white.

After all winter will be here before we know it, and I need lighter and brighter.
I get that lack of Vitamin D deficiency thing.
{not really, I just love to see the sun, and light and bright days}

So simple, so rustic, and really makes a statement.


Oh Gina, as you can see I am still loving my William Sonoma rooster placemats.  
 thank you my friend!

Off topic here...I have not been on the computer too much the last few days, as I think I may be developing carpal tunnel.  My husband is going to be getting me the wrist guard.  I have a lot of the symptoms.   I have no pain at this point, but it is a gnawing feeling.  My husband feels it is definitely the start of it. I am not whining nor complaining believe me, but if you don't see me around as much, this is why. Perhaps this is a sign to slow down Doo's!

What a cute idea! I love it. I don't own any stencils but perhaps I should...just so cute...AND different.. (now you will be seeing them ALL OVER Blogland!) :)

I have had the same thing happen to my right wrist and it frightened me. That tingling...I slowed down my computer time and it did get better. So far is has not come back. I hope your symptoms go away...

Hi Debbie...

My friend, you always come up with the greatest ideas! I love your old, rustic board so sweetly stenciled! It looks sooo pretty on your table! I also enjoyed seeing a bit of your autumn/halloween decor in the dining area! Your home is always sooo warm and beautiful, sweet lady! Thank you for sharing it with us...and your creativity too!

Warmest autumn wishes,
Chari sorry to hear that you might be having trouble with carpal tunnel. Sending big hugs and prayers your way, my friend!

What a clever take on table runners! Only better than your regular table runner, as it is an elevated spot for decorative items and/or goodies. Charming.
Be careful of both hands and wrists, now!

Yikes, hope you feel better. We have a feeling my husband has the starts of carpel tunnel no fun at all. He heads to the docs soon. I love this idea, so cute and like you said rustic!

Oh what a LOVELY idea and you pulled it off so Beautifully...So Sorry to hear about your CT symptoms.... You should consider Theraputic message and even acupuncture that did wonders for a friend who had the early symptoms as well... Praying all gets better for you

Your little signs are the cutest idea. I havn't found anything to paint, but you seem to have a ton and all of your ideas are so cute. Love it. I had corpal tunnel and the surgery. You really don't want to go there. Big nasty scar and out of commission for about 6 weeks. No fun. Hope all of well soon. Hugs, Marty

Debbie I love how you recycle the wood! So very pretty!! I understand about being on the computer too much. I have slowed down a lot too. I am on the computer all day at work, not the net but typing treatment plans and what not.

So sorry to hear about you possibly getting that. I've never had it, but I have had a lot of similar aches that prevent me from living a normal life. So, I have a lot of empathy for anyone with chronic pain. Hopefully, your wrist guard will help do the trick. Do not feel obligated to comment on my posts. Please rest and heal! Your painting project turned out very nice too.

Great idea ~ love the finished sign. I'm sure the repeitive motions of typing, painting, etc. could combine to cause carpal tunnel...not fun. Take good care! A dear friend of mine just had surgery on one arm and the other is upcoming. Just because she kept on doing the every day stuff and tried to keep working through the pain of computer work all day.

Your sign is very cute Debbie. I like the lighter one better. Don't worry about taking time off if you need it, but I hope your hands get better soon. I once had to slow down for about 2 weeks from shoulder pain because I was playing around with my blogging stuff all day. I've learned to take more breaks and slow down. Hopefully you will feel better taking some precautions too.

really sweet ! I love how it looks on your table!
I hope you're not getting carpal tunnel. I thought I had it, but mine doesn't hurt where most people do. Mine hurts on my thumb. Between the computer and all the power tools, my hands don't stand a chance! Good luck!

Looks great Debbie! I have 3 pallets sitting in my garage just waiting for me to tear into them, but I have not had the time. Maybe I should send them down to you!

Now that is cute! (And it compliments the placemats beautifully.)

Carpal tunnel is a pain in the you know what. I've had it for years. (My mom ended up having the surgery) It gets really bad for me at Christmas time. (too much wrapping, too much baking, too much everything!) I hope you get some relief with the guard.

You really do come up with the best ideas my friend. Hope its not carpel tunnel. I have some wrist pain and know how it can hurt. I've used the wrist brace and it does help!

Did you say FREE?
I'm all over that! *winks*
And what an adorable project!
Ummm I'm loving those placemats too Debbie so I think YOU should send em on up to me! Lol! Your dining room decor is sooo cute for Halloween~! Oh and been there done that on the carpal tunnel. The hand brace is a good idea, they really do help, but because it just started with you take it easy and take a good anti-inflammatory and you might just head it off. Vanna
