Welcome, come right through the Barn Door!
Hi everyone! I have been working diligently on my Pallet/ Barn door project. This is my second day and I'm finally finished. Lots of different hues of paint, some trusty duck tape and a wrought iron handle and some sand paper. I decked the door out for the Fall season. Today I kept looking at it and felt it was missing something. Do you ever get that feeling about projects that your doing? Then it came to me , a shelf! So I added a shelf now it somehow feels complete. Oh and I also beat it with a hammer just to age it a bit. I sure did get the kids attention. Lets take a peek....
This is a heavy Pine pallet, not the usual ones I get . I told my daughter to grab some more. It took well to the paints. There's Princess waiting to get into the barn "wink"" wink".
I can use the shelf for each holiday to decorate. Can't wait to fill it up with fresh pine and pine cones.
The hinge I painted on.
It's about 3 ft. wide and 4ft tall. A perfect door for my 4ft 11 inch self.
I bought this huge cow at a craft sale they have about an hour from my home. They have it every year.
It fits perfectly on the dining room wall.
Pallets are great just use your imagination! Only yesterday this barn door was an old pine pallet. Thanks for stopping by Sweet Tea N' Salty Air just take the barn door out wink wink!
You can find me at all of these fun linky parties!

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
