Where my angels live

I came across this pallet on the side of the road walking from my car to the office one morning, a few years ago.  It was just lying there like a challenge -now what are you going to do with me, a grubby, abandoned piece of wood? Could you turn me into something useful, and possibly even attractive, for your own home? I had no immediate answer for the pallet but lugged it upstairs into my office all the same, where for several days I endured the ridicule of my colleagues (What the hell is that? Why on earth did you pick it up? What are you going to do with it?)

I believe the concept is called upcycling: the pallet got scrubbed, lightly sanded and varnished, and put up on a wall in my lounge. My angels live on the top, and Pappy Bulu’s ceramic masks hang across the bottom. What could be more perfect?
