Hey, everyone…

DadDad’s on vacation this week!
Not only does this mean we get more family time,  but I also get a chance to tackle a few things on my project checklist 😀

One of My Project Goals: Pallet Wood Patio Table

Check out Shabby Love’s site for this step-by-step TUTORIAL.

Hopefully you are able to find wood pallets around you…
We go to a Lumber Liquidators about 45 minutes from us… worth the drive! We pick up a bunch at a time for various projects around the house and the best part is that the pallets are FREE! 

Stay tuned for upcoming posts on more of our pallet wood projects…

Thanks for stopping by ♥

Hey, everyone…

Every once in awhile, you come across something that just sticks in your mind…
you love it, you think about it an awful lot, you dream about it…
and you set your mind to making it…

Did I mention that this has been on my mind for over a year now???

Meet my new pallet wood project: The Garden Fence

We live in a second story walk-up apartment, but we have this space beside our front door that would be perfect for this…

Check out Camelot Art Creations for the TUTORIAL and while you’re there, have a look around her site and Etsy page and get ready to swoon ♥

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! ♥

Hey, everyone…

We were looking for a simple and budget-friendly way to create space in our very humble apartment. I didnt want to buy a spice rack because we are already short on counter space, so I decided to see if we could use our leftover pallet wood and put a very simple spice rack up on the wall.

We needed something light (as in weight) because our apartment complex is older and it’s questionable whether or not the walls can hold something heavy, even if the shelf were to be anchored.

Here’s what we came up with…

• SIMPLE & INEXPENSIVE

Pallet Wood Spice Rack (PalletWoodPrincess.Wordpress.Com)

 A perfect fit in the small wallspace that we have…

It’s nothing fancy, just another budget-friendly idea for something you can make out of pallet wood…

Hey, everyone!

I don’t Pinterest… I can’t. I am one of those people who get easily sucked into that type of thing and it becomes a time-thief in my life. I could spend hours browsing, categorizing, and daydreaming. There is no moderation for me when it comes to that type of website. Nothing else gets done in my real world when I go to that website… aka flutter off to Never, Never Land! So I have had to set up a mental barricade in that area. But there is internal conflict because I still love to seek out ideas for inspiration… just with a little less… sensory overload.

So what’s a home decor, do-it-yourself, arts and crafts- loving Mommy got to do?

My solution…

Have you met our friends at The Hen Basket on Facebook? Ahhhh ♥

Here’s a few of my favorites that I wanted to share…

Laundry room… I’ve never been so motivated to do laundry before 😉

Happy DayDreaming, friends 😉

Hello, friends!

It’s been awhile since I’ve had time to do some crafts for myself.
Most of the crafts that I do are with Little Monkey.

And just a quick thank you for your patience as I get both of our blogs organized.
If you’re interested in more home decor and adult crafts, we hope you find this blog (The Pallet Wood Princess) of interest. If you’re looking for toddler/kids crafts, recipes, parenting, ways to save $ by making homemade products (laundry detergent, homemade bread, etc), then please be sure to check out our family blog The Trials & Triumphs of a Passionate Parent.

And now… to share with you this craft that I am just itching to make…

I came across this today and fell in love!
