{Another pallet, another project}

If you know me at all then you know that Mason jars, burlap and pallets are pretty much my jam. The Hubbs and I made this American Flag pallet back in April. It was a tedious project, but we loved the outcome. It's become a favorite part of our home. It resides on the front of our house.

We are planning on making a Texas Flag one, too. When we do, we'll probably put it on the other side of our house. I really love this one that we saw at the Pink Pistol in Lindale, TX...

...but I don't think I'll be able to talk him into making a pink one. Unless....oh yeah, unless I get him to make it for my in home office! That might work! ;)

Anyhow, I have been wanting to string white lights around our patio for a while now. The only problem is that our only tree on that side of the house isn't necessarily close to the patio. So, we had to get creative. My MIL mentioned stringing white lights onto a pallet and then hanging the pallet from the tree, just to give it a little something extra. Well, Nate doesn't think the pallet will give me that warm "ambiance" I am looking for around the porch. He is brainstorming on how to hang the pallet over the porch, or closer to it.  Last night I worked on stringing the lights through the pallet. This was definitely a piece of work! But, I finally got it and love the results. Can't wait to hang it! I'll be sure to post a picture when it's all done. photo 10455064_10152110388776148_8290490115386469908_n_zps5fe95251.jpg

  1. love it, can't wait to see how/where you hang it! I've never attempted a pallet project, looks fun but unfortunately totally doesn't work with the decor in our house, boo!

  2. Super cute! I love the American Flag pallet - I want to do that. My porch is super small so I need a mini pallet, which I had but got rid of when I moved. Darn it!
    I love the lights too, that will be awesome. Can't wait to see it :)
    Happy Friday sweet friend. Have a great weekend

  3. OH MY GOSH. If I had the room for a pallet, I would TOTALLY make the one with the lights!!! I love your American flag as well!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
