Oh Thrifty Thursday, I have missed you! It's been awhile but I'm back, joining the ever funny and delightful Lady Cordelia to share a little thrifty fabulousness.
Pallets have been all over Pintrest for a couple years now. So I know this is not a new idea, but nevertheless I think it's pretty fantastic and the pallet was pulled from a dumpster so how's that for thriftiness!?! Free makes my heart sing!
Meet my herb wallhanging planter thingy:
Isn't it so cool!?!
I pulled it from a dumpster on the way to pick up Will from school one day, with four others! It was a jackpot find. I may have done the running~man in the parking lot ;)
Bill kindly sanded and stained it for me. He did a two part stain that I am loving. It's actually what he will use on the coffee table he is building out of 50+ year old reclaimed wood from a North Carolina pier :) eeek! I told him that the pallet would be a good test project. Insert eye rolling from him. But it was!
The pallet with herb jars is the final piece I needed for our new eating area. In a few weeks I'll be able to show you what happened to the old dining room which the boys now refer to as the "cwaft woom" :)
And in hopes of always keeping it real with y'all, this is the heap of toys I had to push into a pile to get my pictures. Wear shoes if you come! It will save you the pain of stepping on a Lego or two, an injury I don't wish on my worst enemy!
If you have something to share today, skip on over and link up with C! It will make for a fun link hop!
