I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead and for those of you celebrating the 4th of July, may you have a fun and safe weekend! I don’t have any major plans but I hope to get some R&R and hopefully a little sun if it ever decides to show up here.

With a few days before the holiday I thought I’d do a round up of some of my favorite crafts I’ve seen lately. Hope you enjoy!

DIY Pallet Headboard

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

My husband and I placed an order for new bedroom furniture back in March from West Elm and have watched our delivery date go from 4-6 weeks to five months. We’ve received discounts to compensate for the inconvenience but all we really want is our new furniture and can’t wait for it to arrive!

I’m thrilled to see our room come together but the delay has made us impatient and we’ve even considered making our own. Take a look at this beautiful and insanely creative headboard made from a wood pallette by Stylizimo. With the right bedding and accessories it looks so chic!

While we try to decide if we can wait it out, I’ll be looking into more inventive ideas like this one. And speaking of amazing ideas, be sure to browse around on Stylizimo if you haven’t before, it’s a plethora of talent and inspiration!

With Easter almost here, Mother’s Day is soon to follow! I’ve updated my original Mother’s Day Door Hanger for 2011 and hopefully it’ll come in handy for a few of you.

Whether it’s a gift for yourself or someone you know, I’m sure everyone can appreciate a little down time this Mother’s Day. The best part, it’s a gift that keeps on giving; hang whenever a quite moment is needed and cherish those precious times! All you need to do is download, print, cut and hang! Happy early Mother’s Day!
