Pallet coat/shoe shelf

Our back entry is the door we mostly use to come in and out of I don’t think we even have a key for the front door! This entry way is a very small narrow hallway so anything on the floor for shoes was a tripping hazard. I needed a new solution for shoes and coats. We have all seen the pallet shelf wine racks etc… well this is my version and the perfect solution for hanging coats and for all the shoes that would otherwise be on the floor!



To get the old barn wood color I first tried a solution some may have seen soaking steel wool in vinegar that did not work, so I then watered down a little black paint and brushed it on then let it dry then sanded.

I love the transformation!

Remington's Birthday

I am a little late to wish Remington a happy birthday on the blog but here at home we did celebrate it! It has been a busy week here with projects so I wanted to do do a post on Remington's dump truck cake before I share the other projects with you. I love this cake it turned out cute and was really quite simple to do.

my inspiration for this cake came from Kat at Petticoats & Peplums

I am not sure what she used for her candy But I used Whoopers and left some whole and cut some in pieces. for the frosting I used a cream cheese frosting and mixed cocoa mix in with it to give a bit of a dirt color then sprinkled cocoa mix over the whole thing to give it texture, Other than placing the truck on top and making the rocks cascade out that is pretty much it!

Happy Birthday Remington!
