rustic wood pathway made from rough cut lumber | On The Creek Blog //
Constructing a rustic wood pathway to go through our new mulch area!

My husband, James, & I added a brand new mulch area to the side of our home this spring (you can read all about that here).  We made sure to make the new area a little bit bigger to accommodate a pathway.

Then, like most things at our home, the area sat empty for a couple months while deliberations were happening!

I wanted to use wood from pallets to create the pathway.  I've seen so many cute ideas on Pinterest & I wanted to recreate them for our pathway.  Also it would be practically free because we already have several pallets laying around.'s the thing:

James hates repurposing stuff, especially wood.  He worked in the construction/carpentry field for many years & has an extreme hatred for reusing old materials.  He would much rather use things that aren't all twisted & beat up with nail holes everywhere, which is totally understandable.  New materials are easier to work with.
