So I decided on making a bookshelf for my son for my weekend project and I think it turned out great! I started with a small odd pallet Added some extra slats to the back and front...using some power tools...yay! Lol I have just recently come accustomed to using them (thanks to my...able to do ANYTHING husband) so this and the 95 degree heat was definitely a challenge but oh so worth it! Then I stain my project and viola I have a completely FREE bookshelf that is VERY sturdy and I think it's quite nifty...

As everyone has noticed I try to make at least one thing every weekend and this week my lovely man is bringing me home some pallets!!!! I have seen so many different awesome pallet re purpose ideas that my head is swimming with excitement! So here are some of the ideas I have come up with......

I have been searching for an inexpensive way to surround my flowers without it being an eye sore and I think I've come up with a way...I decided since all my many flowers are already surrounded by pine straw why not edge them in pine cones? I have so many trees outlining my yard they were everywhere anyway...I got my son to help me gather enough to outline all the flowers and dug them in the ground a little so that they wouldn't blow away...I think they look spectacular and the fact that I didn't pay a dime for them makes them look even better to me lol
Kitty smiles...I just love em! This is 9 month old Jasmine who belongs to my son..and of course is the baby of the house...she is the only fur baby who is allowed on the couch...I know that is such favoritism but I just can't help it she's so darn cute...LOL...She absolutely hates pics of herself and I can never get one with her eyes open but the smile is good enough for me

We also made these favor bags! I was lucky to find these red bags at the local DOLLAR TREE store so they were a dollar (they also have awesome favors there too). Then we used the same face for the pinata and scaled it down a bit to fit the bags. Filled them up and gave them out! the kids loved them!
