Pallet Shelf With A Touch of Glam

I finally joined the rest of the crazy crafters and made a Pallet Shelf!  These were actually pretty fun to make!  I thought originally I would put a couple in my son's room for books, but then I had other plans!
My Dad gifted my Great-Grandmothers cookbooks to me sigh; I am so not a cook!  These cookbooks are super cute though!  I love to scroll through them, she has all these little handwritten notes next to the recipes "Really Good", "A Crowd Favorite" =priceless!  Notice I added a couple of wine bottles, yep those are right up my alley, lol!
I have been wanting a sign in the kitchen that said GROCERIES forever!  I had to take matters into my own hands and create one!
I sanded down the wood and then just left it; I like the imperfections!  I grabbed my stencils and craft paint and gussied it up while watching "Storage Wars" with the hubs last night.  Not sure about you but I cannot just sit and watch a TV show, I have to always be doing a couple things at once-drive my husband crazy!
I also made this cute one as well!  This went to Rusty Glamour in my shop space.  Did you see the cool desk I just picked up?  Loving those leather handles!

So have you made a pallet shelf yet?  If not, you can find the instructions from the lovely Anna White here!
