While it does have some obvious wear, it still, however, has plenty of life left in it. The slat back is my favorite part of the whole thing. Whomever built it did a great job with the dados and overall squareness of it all.

My sweet father brought this to me in late summer and I tucked it in for the winter hoping for inspiration to hit by spring. Honestly, I had in the back of my brain to just set it out for spring clean-up if nothing came to mind to do with. Funny, not funny, was I missed Read more

Upcycled Pallet Twice Over ~ Farmhouse Towel Rack

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last 10 years, it’s no news that pallets have won the world over for their potential.
