Nail and String Cross Art

Kristi blogs at My Weekly Habit. Years agao, her gandpap made this huge tower of drawers for storage in his garage workshop. When he died, the drawers were passed along to Kristi's husband. They were full of all kinds of nails, washers, nuts, and bolts. For this project, Kristi tried to incorporate as many of her grandpap's old nails as she could.

Perfect Picture Frames from Pallets

"I am knee deep in a garage, mudroom and kitchen addition," says Katie from Little House of Four. "Each week we've had a few deliveries, which all resulted in pallets full of material being delivered to the house." She's been using all that pallet wood to make useful and beautiful things for her home. Her latest project is turning pallet wood into picture frames.
