Rustic Pallet Bench

Hey there!  Have a good weekend?  My hubby and I worked on a pallet project together and we had so much fun!  It was just one of those great weekends, you know?  We worked on this and then he surprised me with a special date night.  Something we haven't had time to do in a while so it was extra special.  And then we had a fun family day on Sunday.  Those are the best kinds of weekends.

I'm so glad hubby was there to help.  Those suckers are heavy and it was just plain fun working on something together.  We recently purchased a vintage record player, yes, I said record player, for our outdoor "studio", so we popped on an old Dean Martin album, turned up the volume and got to work.  Fun, I tell ya!  :) Here's what we started with, a pile of free pallets.
And here's how it ended up.....
This was one of those projects where I just kinda planned it as I went along and when we were finished, we just couldn't stop grinning.
Everything we used for this bench was something we already had so it was FREE!  Love that!  I really wanted to use rustic barn hinges on this because we have been collecting them for quite a while, just waiting on the perfect project and this was it.  The detail they add is perfect for this bench.
Hubby came home with those numbers above the ledge.  They are from an old gas station and since Halloween is around the corner, I thought the number 31 would be appropriate and fun.
I can't wait to decorate this area for Christmas!!  Any of you have any pallet projects?  What kinds of projects are you working on?  Would love to hear about 'em, as always!

Have a great day!  Click here to order more bread boards!  I've had several requests for sets of 5 or 6 numbered maple boards.  If interested, message me via Etsy and I will set up a custom order for those.  Thanks!
