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.

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!

Sign of LOVE

Standard

With today being election day I am avoiding the TV and radio as much as possible!  I decided to find a project to do and this is what I came up with!  I had a blank canvas sitting around and some old vinyl letters…. hhhmmmm…..  lets get to work!

Ottoman for our small den

Standard

We have a small den that used to have a huge coffee table in front of the couch,  you had to walk around it and it didn’t leave much room for our dog to hang out.  I love working with old pallets so I figured I could make the top with one and then add some legs, padding and fabric – wa la….. an ottoman!!  My corners look a little rough and it’s not perfect – but it’s perfect for us!!
