Pallet Project

If you're a crafter, a wanna be crafter or just a blog follower of crafts, I'm sure you have seen many pallet projects. I have pinned several on my Pinterest boards. Until now, I have yet to actually see one in person!!

My daughter {beautiful, SMART & talented} is in FCCLA in High School. She took part in a National Star Event Contest. The topic she choose was "Recycle & Redesign". The requirements were to take an everyday household or post consumer product and redesign it into something new. She also had to give a 10 minute speech in front of the judges panel. She choose to make a coffee table from recycled pallets!

She did 98% of the work by herself! There was a lot of lifting, pulling out nails, sanding, staining, drilling etc. involved, not to mention the preparation of her speech.

(these pictures were taken inside my garage and not on the correct setting, so please ignore the poor quality of the photos)

I think it turned out GREAT!!!

And I am PROUD to announce.... SHE WON 1ST PLACE IN HER DISTRICT!!!!!

Next to conquer will be Regionals in February :) I will keep you posted...
