Don’t Waste a Pallet!

This was my most recent project. I managed to get hold of an old delivery pallet and decided to use it as a display idea for my Hearts and Home items.

Firstly I sanded it down to get rid of all the rough edges to avoid splinters.

I then gave it a coat of paint in an “antique cream”. Just one coat and no fancy paint, just a cheap matt coloured paint.

I then fixed some little hooks (you could use nails) evenly across the panels of wood. It made a perfect display at a village fete that I did at the weekend.

Pallets have many more uses. They could be used as display shelving, you could even put it in your garden and plant flowers or veg in between the rows.

Let me know what you think, thanks for taking the time to read.

All three of the above items can found at Hearts and Home.


I love the smell of spring and flowers (not so great if you get hay fever). But here are a couple of spring floral scented candles to give your home a fresh smell.

Yankee Candles are my favorite and my collection is forever growing.

I’ve found the best place for discounted and “Fragrance of the Month” candles to be Tempation Gifts.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my favorite florals, enjoy your Spring : )
