Table Centerpiece

I'm not really sure if this is worthy of posting, but I'll share it just because and, yes, it's another pallet project!!  I needed something for my kitchen table so I started with this...


I cut it down to make it look like a rustic box.  It needed handles on the sides but I wasn't about to head downtown to buy some, so I cut two blocks of wood from the leftover pallet wood, added a large screw to each block of wood and hung these hook thingys (they do have a name) on the screw to make them look like rustic handles - not functional and just for "show".




I had flowers that were given to me so I put them in the box...



I also tried using a bunch of artificial daisies...(real would be much better!)


Whatever I decide to use, I think this will be a suitable and functional kitchen table centerpiece...for now.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look...have a great day!

  4. I love that your DIY projects aren't too intimidating for a newbie like me... those metal "handles" are called carabeeners ( spelling? )

  18. Dear Lesa,
    This is DEFINITELY post-worthy; I just had my husband come over to the computer to look...we just dragged a pallet home the other night that was by the dumpster where they're building a new house just down from us ~ it had had pavers on it ~ Now I know why I got it! ♥ Love your blog; saw it on Liz's post, now I'm following ~ So nice to meet you!
    Best,
    Anne
