Pinterest Projects: Pallet Shelves

One of the first ideas Pinterest ever gave me was the idea of turning a pallet into shelves. Here’s just a few of the promising pallet pins that continued to spur me on to find a pallet…

I have since seen pallets everywhere… on my drive to work… being whisked away on big semi trucks. Or I see them piled high behind fences, just out of reach. And then I posted my 25 Wishes post for my birthday and I got my mom involved. And you know, any time a mom gets involved, stuff just gets done! So she started bugging my dad and by that following weekend, I had a pallet! He had found a few of them on the side of the road!

And so from there my lovely husband cleaned it up with the hose and a brush and pulled off the center board. Then he hung it up on the wall above our staircase.

I went through a box I had of random frames that had never found a home, ordered some photos from Sam’s Club, and added a few other decorations that I had out in other places and ta-da! I think the grand total spent came to $0.54 for the photo prints! I want to eventually get some bigger frames to put in there as the 4×6 frames are just a little too small for something so big. Plus most people will only see this from the floor below and I would rather put up bigger photos to be seen from there.

That little succulent came from my friend Courtney, a gift for my birthday!

Stay tuned for another Pinterest Project! Here’s a clue….

P.S. I had been wanting to post this for the last month as the start to the Pinterest Projects series, and purposely left it out of my birthday gift post just so it could have more attention. And then Miss Lauren Lee posted her own Pinterest series: As Seen On Pinterest! And she just posted a second post in the series! I need to catch up! Great minds think alike, Lauren!

P.P.S. If any of you out there have tackled a project (or recipe or shopping outfit or craft or etc.) that you were inspired by from Pinterest, please send them to me or link to them in the comments! I’d love to feature your projects as well!

I believe in magic. I believe in the power of true love. I believe in fairy tales and happy endings. And I live to create stationery and art for the young at heart to allow my fellow dreamers to treasure all of life’s most wondrous moments!
