pallet pleasing @ home – DIY

I love using reclaimed wood.  The Lover has very modern taste, with which I can agree.  Sometimes too modern, too minimalist equals too cold and barren for me.  We compromise by bringing in pieces that show unfinished wood.  These below are faves- I love the colors in the headboard (don’t know if I would really write on it, maybe a design?), and the plants are just awesome.  Bringing greens, herbs, and flowers to the living area is sometimes just what I need to soften a space.

the tutorial on making this reclaimed wooden headboad is here at House*Tweaking.

And how about this upright pallet garden?  Tutorial is here, at Life on the Balcony for the how-to. photo via Domestic Charm: DIY Pallet Projects.
