$3 Priceless Pallet Picture Holder

Did you see my post a few days ago about me taking apart 20 pallets? That was a lot of work!

Luckily it paid off big time! Not only was I able to make six large raised planter beds but I have had a nice supply a beautiful wood to feed a few projects over the last year.

This easy project I am going to be sharing today has been something I have had in my mind for a while now and decided to put into action a few weeks ago!

This is a super easy DIY pallet wood project that wont cost you more than a couple dollars and less than an hour of time! Using any pallet wood scraps you have, follow this pallet wood tutorial to create a new piece of frugal and fabulous decor for your home!

$2 Thrift Store Bulletin Board Makeover

Completely blank sits a white wall in my kitchen, just begging for a bulletin board.

I first thought, “Cool, I’ll just go buy a piece of cork board and put fabric over it, call it good.” Well, turns out cork board is not that cheap.

Plan B, keep my eyes open for an old bulletin board to refinish. Turns out, it didn’t take me long to find one at a local thrift store.

Best part, I bought it for only $2! After purchasing the board, fabric, and tacks, I spent total about $8. Not bad at all for a completely custom bulletin board!

DIY Drink Station

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and The Coca-Cola Company. All opinions are mine alone.#ExpressUrSelfie #CollectiveBias

Cakes, cookies, pizza, hot dogs, chocolates, ice cream, candy, chips, and dips. Oh man! For me, the very first thing I think about when it comes to throwing a party is the food!

What about you? What’s the first thing you start thinking about when you hear the word party?

With all the amazing food around, you cannot forget the chilled drinks! Our family’s favorites are yummy juices, root beer, and water. Well, the water is more my favorite but the others are a majority vote!

A really popular trend right now in party décor is incorporating vintage furniture. I for one, am a huge fan! I love the charm that an old piece can bring to any party theme. Even if you have a modern theme, a pretty piece of furniture nicely tied into your theme can make a huge statement!

This idea is what brought on the inspiration for this DIY drink station.

Such an easy DIY project to make a HUGE statement for your next party! DIY drink station for only $20.
