I love the use of old items...'upcycling', I heard it fondly referred to as recently. There is so much satisfaction in giving something, anything a makeover, or using something for a completely different purpose to what was originally intended and it looking fabulous!
Amazing Stylist, Emily Chalmers says it perfectly, "think laterally - a beautiful but old teapot with a broken spout could make a great vase, a distressed wobbly stool could become a plant stand, a lace bed cover could hang at the window, a relatively small length of fabric could cover a panel of a screen."
Upcycling, making over, thinking laterally, whatever you want to call it, I hope these ideas for the humble wooden pallet inspire you to give that little DIY job you have been putting off a go!
Would love to hear about your makeovers, let me know what you have done that turned out better than you ever expected!
