How to Make a Shelf from a Pallet

How to make a shelf from pallet wood. 

This lovely, aged, pallet is on it's way to the trash...


"Just one more project with it before you throw it out!!!"

So I cut a piece off the top, then I painted it with white wash.

I saw something similar on a blog once and came to find out it was my new friend Holly's over at Down To Earth Style.

She has an awesome blog with a beautiful house that you just have to see to believe!

I dressed mine up with a little rusty jewelry.

And now I'll probably use it as a centerpiece on my outdoor table.

Or on my big old farm table.

Or maybe as a rack to hold those large bowls and platters that never seem to fit anyplace else.

I'm sure I will think of something!
