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!
When decorating my home I am finding that I love the look of distressed wood. I also love using family photos to add a little love. Cheesy but true! Put the two ideas together and here you have my new priceless pallet picture holder.
