Pallet Boards Headboard

Standard

added a new yellow pillow!

A few months ago I changed all the colors and decor in our bedroom. I like my room dark (my husband calls it the cave) because it helps me to sleep better. I went with grays and tan with a splash of yellow. I knew I wanted a big headboard and I knew I wanted to make it myself. There was no doubt that pallets would be involved! I’m very pleased with the end results. Now I have to find those perfect pieces to redo for bedside tables and a couple of unique lamps.

Summer Time Flip-Flop Wreath

Standard

I first saw a flip-flop wreath on Pinterest and knew I had to try my hand at it. I hit the dollar store and bought all their children’s bright colored flips and then dug through my craft stuff and began to decorate them. I wanted it to look like something my two granddaughters would do – you know, lots of feathers, jewels and flowers. I love how it turned out and it makes my front door look very happy. Can’t wait for my first visitor!

Palm Tree and Turtle Mosaic

Standard

My husband loves palm trees so I have decorated our den with an assortment of art pieces. I made this one for him over the weekend from scrap glass tiles I have collected over the years. He loves it!! I really enjoyed making it, even if I did end up with little cuts all over my hands. 🙂

I wanted to do a second mosaic piece to go with the Palm Trees so I went with Turtles! They are going from the sand into the ocean.
