What a great holiday weekend it has been. I even had a surprise guest this week, my son Nathan and grand-daughter Addison came down for a visit. They live in Indiana so we don't get to see them that much. It was a wonderful family weekend with all the kids together.
I did manage to finish one project this week. Actually I just re-worked a previous uncompleted one into something new.
A little chalkboard paint and a little chicken wire, a few boards added to a pallet for shelving and you have one great message/ storage/ art station.
The front 2 boards are painted with chalkboard paint.
To make the shelves I added boards to the top and bottom.
Th metal strip and washers create a hanger. The chicken wire was stapled all the way around to make a message board in the center open area.
I then just added a metal can and clothes pins spray- painted red for chalk and messages.
The pins are also good for clipping crayons, markers and completed pictures.
The edges of the pallet were previously burned with a torch. I just left them the way they were, I liked the rustic look it gave it.
There's even room for a special friend to sit on a shelf.
Another great use of a pallet I think.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week!!
