Pallet Wood+Drawer=Kitchen Island

There is just something about building kitchen islands that I seem to like.  
So, when I spied this odd drawer sitting in a corner of the workshop (it is from our media area and once held video tapes--the previous owners left them),
I knew it would work great for the bottom of an island/bar/shelf.

Pallet Buster + A Pallet Stool

Y'all know I love pallets!  

The number one question I get about pallets is, "How do you take them apart?"  And in my book Crafting with Wood Pallets I share how I use a sawzall to cut pallets apart. This method works great when you have two people and if you are okay with the nail heads being left in the wood.

But, sometimes (ok, often times) I need a pallet disassembled and I am the only one at home.  And sometimes I don't want the nail heads in the wood.  In comes the PALLET BUSTER!

Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! The line "My chains are gone, I have been set free" from Amazing Grace has been going through my head lately. How often do we (ME!) live our lives like we are still in chains and as if Christ did nothing for us on the cross? We forget his grace and sacrifice that save us, and instead choose to walk around shackled to our past mistakes, weighted down with our problems and shortcomings. We live with shame and guilt rather than freedom and forgiveness. Let's break the chains to those hardships and battles that keep us from fully experiencing Jesus's unconditional love. Today, give it to God, let it go, and know God's peace.

Delightful Dresser

When a friend asked me if I wanted to buy some project dressers (four total) that she had not been able to get to, I jumped on it.  Good, decent dressers are becoming harder and harder to find.

Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! On vacation this summer, we walked through a forested area near my aunt's home in Portland. I loved all the green, especially the ivy growing up many of the trees. But, while it looked lovely, I learned that it is horrible for the trees and will eventually kill them. The ivy made me think about those things in life that "look pretty" and seem good, but really aren't. Daily, we are bombarded with things that appear great, but they are actually harmful. Thankfully, God gives us discernment to guide our decisions and choices. The more time we spend with Jesus in prayer and reading his Word, the easier it becomes to discern the good from the bad. This week, let's try to seek God more and listen to the Holy Spirit so that we make decisions that honor Him.

Easy Side Table

I have been making (and selling) quite a few simple side tables lately.  They are quick and easy and just one of those pieces of furniture that I think people can never have enough of.
