Pallet Mini Bar, Random Projects, and "almost HOME" sign

Here is a fun and easy project with pallets!

Rachel found this idea on pinterest

and we decided to make one for their deck.

Here is her finished project:

Pin It!
We connected two pallets with wood and screws on the side.

We also added some boards on top to make it level

before adding the concrete pavers.

Painted it up,


wa la

It's a fun mini bar!

Other projects I've been working on:

Lettering on signs using a brown black mix.

Blogging to share paint ideas with you : )

Always hope you find something here you can try,


*I was waiting to share more with you all

about Jamie's "almost HOME" sign.

Now that she has written about it on her blog

I would like to tell you what a special project this was!

Although their home is bustling with three sweet and joyful children,

their 4th child, Addie, is waiting for them in heaven  

Addie was their oldest and left this earth abruptly

after a cancer diagnosis.

Since then, the word "home" hasn't meant the same thing

for their family.

Jamie thinks "almost HOME" suits them better.

What a beautiful sentiment on their mantel.

We took Addie's penmanship from a paper she had written

and transferred the lettering for the word "almost"

so it is in her handwriting.

Jamie has such a way with words and expressing their family's journey

What a great idea with the pallets! What did you use for the top, is that concrete stepping stone? The black/brown lettering looks nice and rustic :)

Linda - ruler right? : ) keeping it simple.
Terry - Rachel got the heavy thick paving squares and they just sit on top. A project that doesn't cost a lot!
