I have several pallet project ideas left so below is a dump of some more of the pallet projects I have discovered. Enjoy!
I haven’t done a pallet project for almost a week now so cut me some slack everyone. Today, however, I am increasing what I see as the level of difficulty of pallet projects. I see me needing to find someone for assistance when it comes to today’s projects. Today the theme is pallets for headboards. I originally got this idea when we were trying to figure out a bed for our guest bedroom. At one point I didn’t know if we would have a headboard and wasn’t sure I wanted to spend a lot of money to go get one. And then I saw this picture (see right) and fell in LOVE, literally! It was at that moment I began searching other ideas for pallet headboards. Although, things worked out with our guest bed, I still have this idea in my back pocket for when we move into our next home. Below are some other ideas I have discovered using pallets for headboards.
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!

So I realize it’s only day 2 and I am already doing a pallet, but I actually made this project and so I want to share it with all of you. I found this small “pallet” at the our farm just leaning against a pole in the machine shop and my eyes lit up!! I asked Big Ron if I could have it and he said I could so my brain began to fill up with ideas. I think that some piece of equipment that was ordered was delivered on it as I haven’t yet located another one.
I started by power washing it and cleaning it off. Once that was done I used dannish oil and a cloth is stain it and make it have a darker finish. I went all over looking for pumpkin stencils and finding none I resorted to making my own, so although they are not perfect they don’t look to shabby. I also bought stencil letters. I spray used spray paint for everything on the pallet. I sealed it with an outdoor sealer and stapled the fall garland to the pallet. TA-DA a pretty cool piece of fall decor for my front door. Now I am searching for one to use for Christmas!
