Pleasing Pallets

There is nothing better than summer in Michigan. It’s our reward for suffering through the long winters. I try to spend as much time outside as I can as I know the warm weather will be gone all too soon.  My sunroom is set up for a summer office, or sometimes I take my laptop and settle in a lounge chair under an umbrella.

When I’m not writing, I’m working or playing in the sunshine. This year I’ve been working on a fun outdoor project—Pallet Furniture!!! I found it HERE and you have to check it out.

So far I have completed the bar (I used 2×12 pressure treated wood instead of pavers)


the  table


and the planter

Today I’ll be working on the couch I’m just not sure which one I’m gong to do. I’ll let you know next month and I’ll be sure to take pictures of all my finished projects.

Are you working on a summer outdoor project or great pallet idea to share? I’d love to see them~

Happy Summer


SJD Peterson, better known as Jo, hails from Michigan. Not the best place to live for someone who hates the cold and snow. When not reading or writing, Jo can be found close to the heater checking out NHL stats and watching the Red Wings kick a little butt. Can’t cook, misses the clothes hamper nine out of ten tries, but is handy with power tools.
