I’m almost COMPLETE in the process of our master bedroom makeover. I know what you’re thinking….What? Lauren actually COMPLETING a room makeover? Yes, it’s true!
I had been staring at the empty wall space above our bed for sometime now, debating what should be the focal point of the room. A shutter was out of the picture, as was an oar, because I already used those items in another part of the room. I debated picture frames….a shelf with pretties on it….no focal point at all. Decisions, decisions. I know, first world problems.
A while ago my husband told me he has the hook up for unlimited wooden pallets. UNLIMITED. Do you know what the word does to a DIY girl? Naturally my head was spinning with ideas, but none I could act upon. The two we took home have been sitting outside in our “garden” (I know, white trash) for two years now. Yes, years. But those two wonderfully long years have brought something amazing to those pallets….AGE. They have aged and weathered so beautifully that it makes me want to throw a bunch more pallets outside for the weather elements to “ruin.” Except, I think my neighbors might call hoarders on us if I do that….or at the very least, our condo association.
The hubs and I had a free day this past weekend and that sweet man of mine asked me the question I think every woman is dying to hear from her significant other…”What can I do for you today?” AH! So I asked him to whip up a quick project for me using the pallets. 🙂
(Do-do-do-do-doooo….cutting the pretty wood…)
And this is what we came up with!
I dry brushed some white on the pieces of wood that were not as weathered as the others, and also to add a little something to the board. I then attached two shabby frames that have been sitting on the floor of my bedroom for entirely too long now. Insert wedding pictures and, Voila! A great focal point for above our bed.
What’s above your bed? Do you have pictures, a shelf, or maybe nothing? I’d love to hear some more ideas!
Stay tuned! We have some big changes coming to the blog soon!
