Day 9 – Through the Barn Window

I had been searching all over for windows last fall and winter because I had this idea in my head to use them for my wedding. Everytime I came across something I liked it was way over my budget. I had just about given up, when I was looking at calves one day with Big Ron at one of our farms. As I walked in the barn I found the perfect windows!!! I found two of them that had all the glass broken out of them and told Big Ron they weren’t doing him any good and I need them. I cleaned them up and used them to hold the Seating Arrangements at our reception. After the wedding, I was trying to find the perfect place for them in my house and decided to use them as picture frames in our hallway. Below is a photo of my barn windows and one of someone else’s. Do you have any barn windows that you could do this with?

Day 6- Pallets, So Easy Even My Husband Could Do It????

I know I said I would try not to do pallets too often, but today you are getting pallets. Today pallet projects are unique though at least I hope they are. Many times I see something someone has made with pallets and the following thoughts cross my head: that is awesome, I don’t have time to do that, I don’t have the tools to do that, my husband won’t help me, I will probably cut my fingers/hand off while attempting this project. After reality sinks in I start looking for something else to dream about. However, the pallet projects I am sharing with you today APPEAR to require little if any disassembly of the original pallet and easy enough for anyone to take one. Disclaimer* I said appear, I have not tried any of these to date.

So below you will find the four pallet projects I think would be so easy that even my non-artsy, non-crafting husband could do it: Enjoy!
