A new look for the new year

I have been wanting to do something new in my living room. I have spent hours and hours looking for what to do. One day while I was cruising Pinterest I found the coolest looking wall. They used pallet boards and it created the neatest rustic looking wall. I knew it was the plan. I have an entire board on Pinterest called  pallet-projects.  It has a couple of the walls I used for inspiration, and lots of other cool projects you could use.  The hard part now was enlisting the hubby.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easily he agreed.  I am pretty sure that was the last pallet project he will agree so easily too.  That wood is HARD to take apart.  He spent more time tearing up pallets than putting them on the wall.  Poor guy.

Ok now is the point I really wish I had taken a before shot.  I never remember to do that.  We just jump in there.  Our living room used to be a brown color, and while Clint was busy tearing up pallets I got busy painting.  Then the boards could go up.  I was so excited.  Clint was pretty sure I had lost my mind AGAIN.  He might be right, but don't tell him. 

 He started and said, "Is this what you wanted?"  I said, "Yep"  That is exactly it.  He just looked at me like  I was nuts. 

So he added a few more and asked, "Is this what you wanted????"  I said, "Yes it really is."

God bless him he just kept plugging along on it, thinking the whole time I lost my mind.  He finally made it to the last piece and decided it wasn't so bad after all.  

I am unconditionally and irrevocably in love with it (and him, but don't tell) !!! 

Didn't he do an awesome job????

Thanks. We did it in about two days, but didn't work on it full time. It was during Christmas break so we had other things going on too.
