Drawer Bar/Shelf

Take 3 vanity drawers, add some paint and a pallet board across the front and what do you get?  A great wall shelf with a lot of storage.
 
Use it as a bar,

 or in a bathroom.
It would also work in a kids room for book and stuffed animals.

The Prairie Sisters show went great--more pictures to come, brought only a handful of smaller items back home!  Oh, and I had a birthday last week and look what I got--new 18 volt Makita drill and impact drill--and a pedicure and massage.  I do love tools, but I can still be a girly girl too!

Pallet Island

Ooo--doesn't pallet island sound like a wonderful place to visit?  A beach filled with pallet lounge chairs where umbrella drinks rest on pallet tables.  I am afraid this is not that kind of island.  But it is a kitchen island made from a pallet.
This was a smaller pallet, with little spaces in between the wood.  I added some small trim pieces and croquet mallet handles to fill the spaces and the some Bri Wax to shine it up.

The legs were made from 2x6's, I added locking casters and the bottom shelf from pallet pieces.
A croquet mallet handle for a towel bar,
 a bottle opener and hook on the front and a pallet wine and book holder and this pallet island is ready to roll.
