Pallet Coat Racks

The cold weather is officially upon us! We made these this summer with some free pallet wood and old coat hooks we found in our garage, and now is the perfect time to get them hung in our home.

These couldn’t be simpler, just use two pieces of pallet wood to make the base and then cut one piece of pallet into 2 or 3 small pieces to fit the vertically up the backside as your anchor and nail into the back. Find some hook eyes and screw those in so you can hang the rack. Then screw in your coat hooks however you want them spaced. And viola a pallet coat rack! So cheap and easy, have fun creating one of your own!

Spooky Dinner for Two

This spooky romantic dinner setting is a great way to celebrate the Halloween holiday with your spouse. And the best part, it only cost about $20!

What I used:

  • 2 black plates were found for $0.50 each at a local Habitat of Humanity = $1
  • 2 silver trays were repurposed as chargers from the thrift store for $3.45 each = $6.90
  • 4 reversible black and orange placemats from the thrift store =$3.50
  • Halloween spiders, black pumpkins, and glitter thorns were from Michaels (they had a great 50% off sale for all fall items) = $10.50
  • The silverware, glassware, candles, and candle base were already things I had and was able to use

How to build your table:

Start with a place you enjoy having dinner. Take it outdoors if the weather is nice!

Build from the ground up:

  1. Base (placemat and/or charger)
  2. Plate
  3. Napkin (I got double use out of the reversible thrift store placemats by using 2 as placemats (black side) and cutting one in half to use as 2 napkins (orange side). These would work great too!
  4. Plate centerpiece or name card. Loving the glitter pumpkins!

  5. Silverware on the outside of your plate setting
  6. Glassware on the top right (I did water and champagne with these awesome grey glasses I got handed down from my mother)
  7. Centerpiece (Use what you already have around the house, like candles, and just add some Halloween décor to make it special)

Hope you enjoy creating a thrilling Halloween table setting for your special someone. Eat, drink and have a wicked good time!

Smash Cake Thrift Fashion

Can you believe this adorable cherry dress I wore was only $7 from the thrift store? I thought it was so fun and perfect for a little girl’s first birthday photo shoot.

And Hartley’s little flower dress was just $5! I finished off with a $4 flower headband and $6 shoes 🙂
