DIY Pallet Clock


Hey guys! Today I actually have broken away from my crazy life as a mommy to write up a tutorial from my Master Bedroom (see it HERE) for you! 

Pallets are all the rage these days. I mean, who can beat free, distressed, aged wood for home decor? One of my favorite things to use pallets for is clocks. I made this large clock to look like a reclaimed antique clock.

It was really simple to build. First, we attached a row of pallets together by attaching two other boards along the back.


Second, we used a string tied to a pencil tip that we then attached to the center of the board with a screw, to help us draw out the perfect circle.

Third, we used a cheap jig saw to cut off the sides. This particular tool cost under $30 at Lowes, so it's a good investment for projects like this.


We lived with it raw for a while, because I am all about natural wood. But it looked too jumbo size for me this way. And yes, that TV needed to go SO BAD! Such a big eyesore... and we never used it anyways...


So one night I took the clock down, slapped some white paint on it (flat paint looks the more antique) and took a board and scraped it for a distressed look.


The numbers were drawn on with a sharpie (I mean, can you get any easier? :P )


Super sweet and simple.


I love how refreshing it looks up against a pure white wall.


It goes perfectly with all the other pallet elements in our master bedroom, like this dresser.


And this bed & our pallet night stands... can you tell we love pallets?


It's so rustic and stunning in all it's natural glory.


To see my list of tips and tricks as a pallet hoarder, along with how to easily disassemble them, check out my post HERE. On a side note, see my pregnant belly in the picture? That was from like two years ago when I had Jason- sob! Time flies!

XOXO

DIY A Frame Tent & Fabric


My kids are always taking the couch cushions off and making blanket forts out of chars and whatever else they can find. I LOVE their imagination. My siblings and I used to pretend our rocking chair was a boat when we where little... which often resulted in having it fall on top of us from all the back and forth commotion... lol. With that said, I am SO happy to see my kids making memories with each other while using their imagination. 

Today I checked one of my bucket list projects off my to do list: A Frame Tents.

Sleepovers here we come! :)

A Peak Into Our Master Bedroom


So I am finally getting around to showing you all my bedroom... in it's "complete for now" form... because you know I can't leave a space alone for too long!


We ditched the flat-screen on the dresser! Yay! Okay, I really took a baseball bat to it so my husband wouldn't have a choice... JK! He is being so sweet and letting me get my way. But seriously though, it looks completely WAY better! (see the before HERE)
