a good friend of mine asked me to make her some rustic style picture frames. so i took apart a pallet (i believe it was pine). i ripped down to size, roughed it up a little more, gave it a coat of stain and white paint and left the original nail holes. it was a fun little project that i completed in a couple of hours. i really enjoyed staining and painting all within the same hour to help achieve the intended look. other than ensuring that the pieces were square, nothing had to be perfect. this was a very enjoyable little project.
