Thanksgiving Harvest Pallet Ombre

Am I the only crafty blogger out there scratching their head, wondering what to make for Thanksgiving? For some reason, though I LOVE the holiday itself, I have a hard time coming up with projects about it. So, this year I've decided to start off with some decorations for the house, because I don't really have any for Thanksgiving. Besides the Pilgrim Man, Woman, and Turkey I made last year, of course. :-) But those are small. This project was decidedly bigger. 

I happened to have this rolling kitchen cart that was in fairly rough condition (found it at a yard sale....surprise, surprise) and it has a couple of pallet-type shelves in it. This was one of them. I just painted them in a gradation of Thanksgiving/Harvest-y colors. What do you think?

It's a step in the right direction, I think!!
You gotta love pallets. And, I know the creative world does!! Have you seen my other pallet?crate projects??
