THE (pallet) GATE

I am starting to believe that you can create anything from pallets… or at least my husband can……
 
Ah, once again i have been inspired by Pinterest. My obsession on there, more than anything else, is gardening. Actually, I suppose it is my obsession all of the time. In fact, this blog is about to get a lot more gardener friendly and I can ‘t believe it hasn’t already. So anyway, back to the point. I found a gate on Pinterest.com that I was completely IN LOVE  with. So , I asked the man that I am completely in love with to make one for me. So he did. And mostly out of free material – pallets!  It is so fabulous that I want more of them , in all sizes , all around my yard.
 
Here is the photo that inspired me:                                    

Our gate space was bigger so it is a double and I don’t have those     amazing flowers growing over it .. YET!… and the hardware is what what we had laying around , so it is temporary. But i am just as in love with the one  in my yard , or maybe more in love with it, because it was made especially for me.

cheese boards… he’s at it again.

Once again, my husband has impressed me with his abilities. To go along with the decor of the candle holders, he is also making these GORGEOUS cheese/ cutting boards. It all started when one of our land lords decided to ” prune”  a black walnut in the yard of the rental house( although, I’d say he did a little more than prune the poor tree). We noticed how truly amazing this wood was with the beautiful contrast of dark on light  and hated to see it go to waste, so we gathered what we could and let it “season” .Then we waited. When the wood was ready, he cut them , sanded them and treated them with 100% beeswax and mineral oil.  Now, he’s addicted to making them. And I am happy to admit that I am addicted to using them. Once again a job well done!

Local Wood Candle holders

My husband is super talented. He actually amazes me with all of the things he can do. I think he spoils me with it too. It  is very rare that we have to have someone else fix anything because he can fix almost everything! Also, he has a great sense of style which is apparent in the candle holders he has been making from our local black walnut trees. The wood is so beautiful and he coats in with mineral oil to bring out all the lovely natural details. You can snatch one of these up by contacting me through email …… ohhellohandmade@gmail.com . We will be posting more lovliness on our oh! hello….handmade facebook page. Don’t forget to like us, please!!!
