Pallet Boards Headboard

Standard

added a new yellow pillow!

added a mew 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.

Joe’s Bar

Standard

I wanted to build my husband a bar, but when I saw this great old wood dresser I decided to ‘reinvent’ it as the bar.  I painted it black and took out the two side drawers to add more space for larger itmes.  I used the door fronts to make a false door.  Then came a top coat of white and a crackle finish.  I love how it turned out and the hardware was the perfect finish.  Drinks anyone?!
