I hope I’m not the only person that has epic DIY failures occasionally, but Gail graciously let me come share with you how I salvaged my DIY failure into a project I love.
My name is Angie, and my blog home is Knick of Time, where I share lots of repurposed vintage projects & free antique graphics each week. Okay, here’s the story behind my DIY failure. I wanted an antique fruit shipping crate, complete with a beautiful label on it, but I didn’t want to pay antique store prices for it. I had several weathered pallets, so I figured it would be easy to build my own crate, right? Well, maybe not. I’m also way behind the crowd, because I have NEVER created a project with pallets before, but thought this crate would be perfect as my first attempt. You can see from this photo of the massacred pallet that I’m a newbie, but I got that pallet cut apart and came up with my plan.
Thank you Angie for a great guest post today showing us that it pays to not give up, there is no such thing as a project fail. Although I have felt that way many times myself. I love how your wall organizer came together with a great vintage style.
