When Manda and her Mom refinished this gorgeous old bed frame, they ran into a little glitch: modern day mattresses are a little bigger than the ones this bed was made for. To solve that dilemma, they pulled out the old frame and slats and attached the headboard and footboard to a modern, metal frame. Manda was left with some aged wood and shared the way she repurposed some of it at Lost in the Found.
If you've ever come home from the beach with buckets full of seashells, then you can understand the dilemma of the beach comber: you don't want to throw away the shells you were so delighted to find, but what on earth can you do with all of them? Well, lucky for you Kathy of Petticoat Junktion has an idea!
Amy shared this craft at Stow & Tell U for Valentine's Day. Her version of this is definitely geared for that holiday, but this is a concept that you could adapt for any holiday or event--it would be super cute at a wedding, actually. Amy crafted her version using scraps of pallet wood.
At Ellery Designs, Michelle was trying to convince her husband that they needed some floating shelves on their dining room wall when he said he thought those shelves would look better against a background of rustic wood. "I have to admit I wasn’t totally sold on the idea," Michelle admits, "but let him run with it and now I can say I’m totally obsessed!" For this project, her husband used wood pallets that they already had.
"Early in the summer my mom and I tore down the playhouse my dad had built for me as a child," says Jamie at Anderson + Grant. "Even though the wood foundation was no longer in a condition to hold up the walls, the wood pickets that boarded the outside were still in great condition. We saved many of the boards to use for various projects." Here is one of those projects.
"My sweet and amazing husband surprised me with some pallets out in our garage," says Courtney fondly at Crafts By Courtney. "Who needs flowers when you get a pile of pallets to craft with!" Who indeed? Courtney's first project was to add a little bit of the beach to her Florida home.
"As Fall approaches, I think about family dinners, getting together, and giving thanks," says Deb at Lake Girl Paints. To celebrate the season, she decided to repurpose some fence boards into some board art with grateful sentiments.
Some rescues require more of a vision to execute than others. That was the case for these old chairs: worn out, shabby, and unloved, they really didn't have much going for them style-wise before they met Deb from Lake Girl Paints.
