While in Virginia visiting our DD and SIL, we worked on a couple of projects – an island made out of pallets and a rocking chair painted with homemade chalky paint.
DIY Deck Island
Since pallets come in all different sizes, we won't give you exact measurements, since it would do you no good anyway. BUT, I am giving you detailed pictures and will try to answer any questions you may have – just leave them in a comment.
The middle section didn't match up. We wanted a middle and bottom shelf, so in order to add that, the center and bottom pallet pieces needed to be level. DH and Taylor pried off the inside support and added new supports. My DH leveled up the bottom supports.
As you can see we worked past sunset – family projects are so fun!
Taylor added glue and placed the tile.
We couldn't find quarter round that was slim enough, so we used simple square wood pieces to trim it out.
No, those aren't my hands, BTW.

Doing so will put you on my mailing list but feel free to unsubscribe any time. Really. It's OK. I may cry a little, but I'll get over it. 🙂
Have a great DIY day!
