Pallet Boards Headboard


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.











Coat Hangers (or anything else you want to hang on them!)


I had some left over wood knobs from a previous project that I just couldn’t bring myself to toss out.  I had taken an old dresser (see earlier post) and recycled it into a bar for my husband.  I replaced the existing knobs for something more suitable.  I pulled the knobs out the other day and came up with a quick and easy project.  I took scrap wood from old pallets – cause I ALWAYS have pallets laying around, painted them and added the knobs!  Instant coat hanging for inside your front door or the garage, or even outside to hang garden tools from.

Ottoman for our small den


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!!
