For The Home
DIY turn pallets into a lounge. This would be great on our deck!
Recycled pallets - sanded & finished as a table.
Corkboard calendar - I like that you can pin tickets and invites right on the board. THIS IS PERFECT
turn a closet into a reading nook.
old door as headboard... just add crown molding and paint
A reclaimed pallet feature wall in the great room. My idea is from an aviation-themed episode of Mega Dens, however... Cut pieces to 8" (brick) lengths ~ "whitewash" each piece w/a dry paintbrush ~ when paint is dry, slightly distress it w/a wire brush ~ affix in a staggered, brick pattern. Voila! - A gorgeous reclaimed pallet feature wall!
book shelves made from rain gutters. love these! Cute idea
This would be life-changing! A laundry room next to the master bedroom. The hamper goes into the master closet, and pulls out into the laundry room. Separate shelves for folded clean laundry! Brilliant!
Wrap the couch in bookshelves rather than have end tables. Our Living room isn't big enough to -wrap- them around, but I really like the idea of doing this against the back of the cough instead of trying to find a cheap sofa table, which has less storage. The only concern would be kids trying to climb them...
Surround a sofa with bookcases
Just crates. You can buy em at Joann's for 9 and stain or paint.
Vintage door bulletin board... I could see it with chalkboard paint.
Tree bookcases are 'in' now. They're so organic looking and adds interest to an otherwise boring wall or built-in. The white brick adds just enough texture as to not overwhelm the bookcase as the focal point. The guitar and amp are just nostalgic and awesome. Not sure how much reading would get done in this room with a jam session going ;)
