Pallet Fun!!



Sorry it has been so long since I teased you all with this project, it is complete and ready for its debut. Here is what she started out to be:



and here is what she is today:


I just love the way this clock turned out.

 I started by taking apart a pallet, then I lay ed  all the boards together and nailed them. I then used a big circular saw blade that my husband had as my pattern for the circle I traced it on an filled it in with some cream paint. I then used a little stain over the cream to give it a vintage look. I printed out roman numerals from the computer using word, cut them out and traced them on to the clock face and painted them in with a brown paint. I bought the clock hands at Hobby Lobby and my darling husband drilled out a hole and installed the hands for me.

 I have it in the spare bedroom and I think it looks great!
