Pallet Make-Over

Take a look at this transformation!

Before - old shipping pallets left in a dumpster.

After - Santa's Shipping Crate.

We cut the crate up and threw away the side supports, then screwed the sides and bottom together to
form a 12" x 24" crate, painted it Fire Engine Red and painted the letters. 
Topped it off with a coat of dark stain.

This will be great for display at the craft shows and because it turned out so cute, I will be making a few to sell.  Wouldn't this be cute on your kitchen counter with candy jars in it or maybe on Christmas morning filled with assorted coffee mugs and a steaming pot of coffee!


  1. Love it! especially because you took something that was disgarded and made it into something useful and awesome!
    Now, why didn't I think of that?

    That's using your noodle!
    What's next?

  2. Glad you liked it. I just couldn't let that wood go to waste. Who knows what is next!
