Pallet Furniture!

I am finally posting about a small project my husband and I took on this summer. I needed a new table for our porch since ours had suddenly flipped upside down in a storm and smashed into thousands of pieces.
I had been wanting to make one for the longest time, but just wasn't completely sure on how to do that or what I wanted to make it from. One morning, I woke up and said ok, lets make it out of...PALLETS!
It took about 2 full days, and my husband did all the grunt work. I helped pick out the wood that I wanted for the table top. We lined up the pieces after we cut them down and stacked them out nicely to make sure we liked the look. Bob then started the frame and made it double duty tough. :)
I love the character that is shown within the boards, and the old nails that were used in the palets, so we kept those in the boards.
And this is our view.....
We come out here to enjoy a morning or evening coffee, where we sit and have dinner if weather permits, or we'll turn on Michael Buble' and enjoy a glass of wine watching the sun set.
Happy Monday Friends!

Take time....

Take time to figure yourself out.
Take time to realize what it is you want.
Take time to cry, to laugh, to forgive.
Take time to take risks.
Take time to love.
Take time before it's too late.
Take time. *Source unknown.

This fall season is going by way toooo fast!
I want it to stop, sloooooow down,and take its time as it passes through.
I want to savor each breath of the fall crisp air and listen to the leaves fall and rustle to the ground below.
Are you taking time to enjoy this fall season? Catch it while you can.

Still doing a little decorating and a little crafting for fall...
this piece came from a little Pottery Barn inspiration.
I glittered a tall pillar candle (last year for Christmas), and simply wrapped baby Indian Corn around the pillar and tied with twine.
