Living Room Ceiling

Our living room ceiling is old and falling down. We don't have a large budget to repair or replace it so we are doing this with pallets. My Dad is long gone but he taught me many things that help with this. Like, why spend money to have someone do this when you can? You never know your limits until you try, measure and make sure it will work. He may be gone but in all my projects I can feel and hear him by my side advising me every step of the way. I have no idea if I can do something until I try which is one of the main things my Dad taught me.

  • Sometimes it takes thinking outside the box to get the job done, and you're doing just that! Great job getting creative with pallet wood. We are sorry to hear about your Dad's passing, but it seems that he taught you many helpful skills, and a work ethic that have continued to hold true today. Keep up the great work!
