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!

Cute little bunny garland that can be cut and assembled quickly and would make a great last minute addition to any Easter celebration! Hat tip to Pinterest for the find, and link to Titatoni’s adorable site where you can get the download.

Titatoni is in German and so are the instructions but it looks fairly simple to follow. Can’t wait to give it try!
