DIY Rustic Farmhouse Pallet Table Runner

Who else loves working with old pallets? There is just something about tearing a pallet apart and then putting it back together in a different form! My love for pallets all started because I needed to fix a bathroom dilemma! After admiring some really cool bath caddy’s  in shopping catalogues but with a BIG price tag, it was never an option as they were totally out of our budget! So my first Rustic pallet  Bath Caddy Project came to life and then some Farmhouse pantry signs and now a DIY Rustic Farmhouse Pallet Table Runner.
