Pallet Box

Hello my sweet blogging friends.

Today I would like to share with you the second project I've been working on...A box made out of an old pallet.
Well, to be totally honest, all I really did on this project was the sanding, finishing and decorating...Hubby did the hard and scary parts...the sawing, drilling and hammering. Oh wait! I also did the bit of nagging persuading it took to get the hubs to help. Hee, hee, hee.
In case you're wondering where I got the pallet to make the box...Well, a few months ago hubby bought something online and it was delivered on a pallet.  Lucky moi!
I found these beautiful vintage drawer pulls at a thrift store for mere pennies and thought they would make the perfect handles and accents to my box.

I love the rustic beauty of it and love how it turned out...Hubby and I do make a great team.

Thank you all for stopping by for a visit.
Let me know what you think of my our project :-)

Hugs and Kisses,

I love this idea Ana. Isn't it fun making new things for your home? I love the touch of the vintage hardware.


Willow said...

That is beautiful. I think I may have to make one myself soon.

Fabulous idea & creation Ana. The pulls are the perfect accent. I know the feeling about 'persuasion'.
Have a beautiful week ~

I've been wanting one of these! I wish I could make it by myself, but, alas, I need hubby's help. I have so many projects for him, that this one always go to the bottom of the list. I love how you added the vintage pulls! Perhaps I'll ask for one for my birthday!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Ha ha ha, I see a few of us have to "persuade" our husbands to help us, LOL, alas, that is why I have so many unfinished projects!

Yours turned out GREAT!! What a great idea!! Love it!!

Hi Ana,

What a beautiful project. I love things that are country and handmade. You did a great job. Also thanks for joining my blog.


Gina said...

What creativity you have, Ana. That box is wonderful and of course, you've decorated it perfectly as well.

Oh Ana, this is so creative and beautiful! Love the vintage drawer pull.
Thank you so much for visiting Bebe's first adventure this summer.. I hope you will join her on her next adventure.
Have a happy week!

Hi Ana, I like your pallet box. I have access to the wooden pallets working at a lumber yard. I just need a person to put one together for me as my hubby would be unable to. You just gave me and idea. I want to make a square one to use for small things when I go to a craft show. Thank you for sharing. May I use your idea. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

Very fun project! And just think, you are saving the earth by recycling the wood pallet. I'm guessing you've got a lot of pallet wood left. Looks like more projects in store for your hubby!

Leslie said...

Neato! I have seen so many pallet projects lately...but none this cool!!!

A Cottage Muse said...

Hello Ana...I love this piece and the hardware you picked is perfect!

Linda said...

Beautiful and perfect for so many themes. You can mix and match to your heart's delight. I love the handles.

What a neat idea! I have seen so many creations with the pallet but I really like yours. And the little drawer pull or knob is the perfect touch to make this look like a work of art.


Janet said...

Super cute idea, Ana! It turned out so sweet and so nice that your husband built it for you! Now that I just got rid of a pallet, I'm seeing some good ideas for using them, but yours is the best!

Hi Ana
I found you while blogging from another blog...I like what you did. That is a great treasure and the drawer pulls add to it so nicely. You have a perfect spot for it on your diningroom table too.
Good job!
