Pallets Furniture

I have been so inspired by some posts I've been seeing about pallet furniture that I've decided to give it a go! It's actually one of my 10 things to this summer and I'm so proud to have done it!! I got some freebie pallets from my work and then we went at it with the power tools and paint!!

The finished result! A pretty white bench with a planter box.

I'm in love with it! Too bad I haven't really gotten a chance to enjoy it since we haven't really had a summer this year. Ohh, also I have one more pallet to turn into a little coffee table! I love it!

Thrifty Find

Recently I've been running into these vintage beverage carts all over, while browsing the blogs or while flipping through the pages of old Country Living Magazines. Everytime one pops up I can't help but stop and drool over them. They are just so charming and glamorous. So, while on my weekend thrift store raids my husband calls me over and right infront of him was this beautiful vintage beverage cart! I instantly dropped everything in my arms and fell in love! Hubby got it for me as an early birthday gift! It's a bit rusty but overall in good shape. I'm really looking forward to getting it back into good shape in time for my birthday dinner, so I guess I've got my work cut out!

In the meanwhile, I'll be on the look out for some inspiration...

Christmas gifts this year? WINE CHARMS!

They came out pretty darn good for my first try, don't ya think?

& I can't give the picture credit to my new gift...these were taken with my sister in-law's. =) So now I've gotta figure out how to do this with mine!

First, get your hands on some earring hoops. They're a few bucks at the craft stores.

Then just slip a bead of your choice in and bend the edge of the hoop with your wires to secure it to pre-made loop at the end of the hoop.

and you're done! I made all of these in minutes!
