Project Challenge- {Pallets}

Wow! Has it really been a whole month? So much for weekly blogging. 
I may not be posting much, but don't be fooled, that doesn't mean I'm not crazy busy. I'm getting ready to show you all my bedroom doors I've been refinishing since my last project challenge (you can see that one HERE), so don't forget to come back later! 
As you can see, there are some pretty amazing projects, so don't forget to check them out!
Soooo, to get on with the project, this month's theme (as you can see) is Pallets. 
I was really glad we had this theme because I've seriously had this pallet in our garage just waiting for me to do something with for a few years. 
Since it was broken, I didn't really want to use it, but then I decided that was part of the charm, so I drug it outside and sprayed it with a clear coat. 
I had attached a fence board to the bottom years ago when I was going to use it before. It just never quite got completed...I don't know why.
 I rummaged around my craft drawer and found the word "home" from a previous project, so I
stenciled it on with black chalkboard paint. 
It was really the only paint I could find that was black.
 The numbers to the right, that you can barely read, are our address.
I stenciled them over the crack because I wanted it to look natural...

 like they were already there. 
Like the writing on the side of the pallet

 The hydrangeas are from my neighbor friend's yard.
She has the most beautiful bushes that have the most amazing blooms!
Once I had cut a few out, you couldn't even tell I had taken any. 

I love the special touch the Pallet holder adds to the entryway. What's fun is that I can 
change it out for the seasons.
What do you think?
Now go check out my amazingly creative friend's posts by clicking on the links below, and see what they all came up with!

  5. How do you paint your fonts so perfectly?? Even when I use a stencil template mine never turns out as terrific as yours. What's your secret?
