Pallet Coffee Table.

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Ages ago my husband got me a pallet to turn into a coffee table for our lounge room. Today we finished it, apart from a glass top. It didn't have a bottom on it, so we got a piece of MDF and I white washed it and stuck triangles cut from pages of an old book* on it. We then nailed it to the bottom of the pallet and attached industrial castors (from Bunnings) so it can be easily moved. I think the whole thing cost less than $70, so I'm pretty happy. I like the natural colour, but I'm wondering if I should paint it white. The dilemmas!
*The book I used was destined for the recycling - it has no cover or spine and has seen better days. I would never cut up a book that can still be read!

I love Abundance.

I know I have posted about Abundance before, but I love it. Mady's posts are always beautiful, whimsical and inspirational. I always find myself in awe.

Etsy love: Carson Converse Studio

I Love the quilts by Carson Converse Studio. I want a big one for my bed. The only tricky bit is choosing between crosses and triangles...

Wedding crazy.

We are all about weddings at the moment. Our sister Be is getting married in a few weeks, so we are in full wedding mode organising decorations, favours, hair stylists, shoes, signs, drinks and everything else we might need for the big day. I'm addicted to reading wedding blogs and Be tells me I need to stop before my head explodes with ideas.
Some lovely pics I've found from Once Wed, Green Wedding Shoes and 100 Layer Cake.
