My pallet obsession continues and after being gone all last weekend, I arrived home to a fresh pile of pallets that sweet hubby had picked up for me (the neighbors love me...or not). I have been asked where I find pallets. I see them everywhere and have stopped into a few businesses to ask for them. The businesses are more than happy to get rid of them.
Some of the pallets hubby got were beautiful, others not so much. One in particular was rough and uneven, and I thought it might become firewood. But, upon further inspection I realized it would work well as one of the pallet book holder shelves we have all seen. I cut off the piece I needed with a jigsaw and added a couple of pallet boards--one to the bottom and one across the back middle section to complete the shelf.

And the accidental finish part of the story? I painted this fun little piece red initially and added a stain, a dark stain. I didn't like it. Black and red always remind me of Asian decor, not that there is anything wrong with that, it just isn't my style. I decided to slap on some green and turquoise paint that I was using another pallet project and my accidental, unintended finish happened. See FULL paint tutorial HERE!

Some sanding and stain, a few added hooks and I was happy.
If you haven't noticed I add hooks to just about everything possible. In my opinion hooks are one of the best organizing tools out there and if I can add some to a project I will.
