A Pallet Canvas


I finally got my hands on some pallets. I'm a bit embarrassed it's taken me this long...since they're so ridiculously abundant. But, my thrift store guy (more commonly know as "Mr. Clemson"...simply because he's decked-out in Clemson gear from head to toe every. single. day.) offered to break me up a few, and well, you know I couldn't resist. 


(Plus, it gave me an excuse to bust out the jigsaw again...)


I've been dying to do some sort of art on pallets for a long, long time...so, in order to make myself a canvas, I had plans to finagle something sort of like this...


...which should have involved just a small amount of hammering...


...but ended up being a lot.


However, I prevailed, and I now have a pallet canvas ready to be painted.

  9. Yea! Glad you prevailed. I have some pallets in the garage that I'm nervous to take apart because that seems to be the most difficult part. Anyway, I can't wait to see what you paint.

  10. LOVE the idea! I had the same idea. Found 2 pallets. Taking them apart will be the death of me. Almost all of the boards are broken. SO, now I'm hunting for new pallets!

  11. Can't wait to see what you create! I keep passing by all the pallets I see piled by roadside dumpsters. I need to stop, throw on in the car, and get cracking!
