Pallet Island and Crafting With Wood Pallets

In anticipation of my book coming out I thought I would share a few favorite past pallet projects that helped me to get a book deal.  You can pre-order the book here,( I just discovered they have added the look inside option for it!!):

Oh--doesn't pallet island sound like a wonderful place to visit?  A beach filled with pallet lounge chairs where umbrella drinks rest on pallet tables.  I am afraid this is not that kind of island.  But it is a kitchen island made from a pallet.

This was a smaller pallet, with little spaces in between the wood.  I added some small trim pieces and croquet mallet handles to fill the spaces and the some Bri Wax to shine it up.

  1. Awesome Becky!!!!!!!! Congratulations on your book!

  2. Congratulations on your book! That is so cool and you totally deserve it!

  3. Congrats on the book! Cute kitchen island.

  4. I'm so excited for you!! Your island inspired mine, which I don't think I've ever posted. We're redoing our kitchen and now don't have room for it (but finally going to have a backdoor, so that's okay!), so it's going into the laundry room. I just love it so much! Congratulations on your book!

  5. i have drooled over many of your pallet projects so no wonder to me you got a book deal you worked hard and deserve it xx

  6. Congratulations on the book, Becky!!! That's great and exciting news!
