Pallet Love!

On my lunch break yesterday I went on a mini op shopping adventure and was delighted to stumble across this:


I didn’t have enough room in my car to grab more than one, but it did get me thinking about ways we could use pallets around the house and for our wedding.

Below is some of inspiration I’ve discovered online for DIY’ing pallets. Versatile little buggers aren’t they? Particulary loving the bookshelf and the planter, which would be perfect on our balcony!

1. Daybed 2. Shelves 3. Bed + Table 4. Couch

DIY Round Up

I love discovering awesome DIY projects online. Flexing that creative, crafty muscle we all have is super rewarding, and while store bought items/ decorations are convenient, doing it yourself means you can create something “uniquely you.”

Below are a bunch of fun DIY’s for your wedding and home (oh and your wrist) that I’ve discovered in my travels around the wonderful world wide wide. Let me know if you make any of them, I’d love to see pics!
