I didn’t know Jess was going to mention one of our favorite blogs yesterday, but it was the perfect lead-in for my post today. Layla and Kevin from The Lettered Cottage have a wall that I love and want to create something similar to.
Now, their wooden walls were hiding out under the drywall, because they have an old home, but I’m going to have to bring in wood to create this look. Eric and I were talking about where to get inexpensive old, wood flooring, but then we thought about pallets. They’re free, they’re easy to aquire, and I think they just might work. Thus began my search for pallet inspiration.
This wall is not my style and I think the TV is completely out of place, but I was able to get some good tips from this DIY project. I’m pretty sure I want to whitewash or colorwash my wood.
I’m not a big coffee table fan (perhaps because we have four kids and have had a toddler around for the last 9 years) but this is a cool idea and I think you could give it a rustic or very polished look.
What do you think of these Green building ideas? I think I’m all about it and I just need to decide which room I’m going to attempt it in… I’m between Callen’s bedroom and the Master Bathroom. We’re leaning towards Cal’s room because the master bathroom has really high ceilings and is a much bigger project for the hubs. Currently “Pallet Wall” is about # 4 or 5 on the Honey-do-list…
1. Hang DIY hardware in kids bathroom (I’m pretty sure he’s doing that now. I hear banging!)
2. Build Dining Room Table (we’re in the planning and researching stage still, but making progress)
3. Assemble the kids’ new swingset (a Christmas present, but we’ve been waiting for grass to grow)
4. LANDSCAPE this crazy yard (the builder is re-seeding this week and then we can start!)
5. Create Pallet Wall
I’ll keep you posted on our projects, and until we get to #5 on the list, I’ll just keep being inspired by other people’s DIY ideas. What cool Pallet Possibilies can you think of?
