  • Great idea Deborah!

  • I used my neighbors pry bar tool and the pallets came off super easy.. Still a lot of work though, but hey at least I'm getting some exercise!! Today I bought a nice pry bar for $5.99 at Harbor Freight.. I love taking pallets apart!! The one I pulled apart today was kind of damp from the rain, but I gotto tell u guys the boards came off so easily!!! Now on to making some school stuff!!
