Did I actually post THIS ?
How horrible of me - especially since he cut all of these for me!
Suzan says - Oh Thanks so much John - you're the best!
Suzan says - Now I can put on some Christmas music - and we can paint them together
John says - Don't push it Suzan........................
Suzan says - ok - I won't -
I quickly painted them with Annie Sloan Pure white - sloppily
Used my stencils and sharpie to write out the words - tossed some spare berry garlands around it and
Voila - I have my pallet Christmas Tree
I know they're spaced out too far apart and a little crooked - but I'm a novice at this - next years will be much better! Who am I kidding - it's driving me nuts - but..........................
I have enough to make 2 more like this one - and John's gone to pick up 2 more pallets from Home Depot because I need to make 6 more in total ( gifts )
There were some smaller pieces left over - so I made a mini one for the kitchen - I'm leaving this one raw wood because I think it goes best with all the exposed brick in there and this one I absolutely love
isn't it the cutest little thing?
you think I'm on top of my game because I have all kinds of time to work on these projects, right?
Well just to let you know how out of my league I am here in blogland - I'm not finished shopping - I haven't wrapped a single gift - I haven't baked a thing - the tree is bare - ( smallest tree I think I've ever had but it still needs to be decorated )
but I've got my little pallet trees.......................
and the house is decorated and I still have 6 days if you count today and Christmas eve - and that's enough time, right?
RIGHT? especially if I don't sleep, than it's like 12 days really - almost 2 weeks - plenty of time -
piece of cake
