DIY Pallet Wall Tutorial – DIY Wedding Idea
There are so many DIY pallet tutorials out there. And I would love to use them more but I didn’t want to have to take them apart. The great thing about this pallet wall is that there is very little deconstruction. I created this DIY pallet wall for a wedding this summer. I am so excited to share with you just how well this came together!
There are some ideas for DIY Pallet Walls on Pinterest but very few with a tutorial of how to actually construct the wall. There were a few stipulations I had with this wall. It needed to take very little deconstruction of the pallet, it needed to stand tall without falling over, and it needed to be transported to the venue. I had a lot of demands I know. But with the hub’s help we had a great time working together and we checked off each of the requirements.
I seriously had visions of these monsters toppling over on kids so make sure your’s are completely secure! I also kept a close eye on them throughout the wedding reception. They weren’t coming down unless kids climbed to the top and swung from them and I sure hope you don’t have that at your wedding reception!
Alighty, let’s begin!

How To Make Farmhouse Style Pallet Wood Frames
October 18, 2017
It’s time for the One Room Challenge Week 3 Update for my Master Bedroom Makeover. (In case you missed them, here is Week 1 and Week 2.)
I’ll quickly catch you up on what got done this week, but first I want to show you How to Make Farmhouse Style Pallet Wood Frames.
Since time is always limited around here and I wanted some wall art on the wall above the bed as a focal point, I decided to make three framed watercolor floral prints for that big wall.
These pretty frames were made with pallet wood that I cut on my miter saw at 45 degree angles. The water color flowers were printed on white textured card stock. The textured card stock give the impression that these prints were really painted instead of printed.
I used my Canon Pixma wide format printer to print out the flowers. I honestly don’t recall where I got the files for water color flowers but similar ones can be found here.
The frames were put together with wood glue and staples. The printed water color flower was attached to the back of the frame with double-sided tape.
I finished the frames using Vintage Effect Wash™ that I received from DecoArt. It’s a brand new product and I couldn’t wait to try it. I have to say I love it and can’t wait to use it again.
For now the framed prints are resting on the top of the headboard. I’m not sure whether I’ll keep them there or hang them on the wall above the headboard. I’ll determine that once everything else in the room is done and in place.
I believe a saved a big chunk of change making these beautiful framed prints myself.
I am updating my orange master bedroom as a guest participant in the One Room Challenge. The ORC® is a six-week long event hosted by Linda from Calling It Home. Every week on Wednesday, 20 professional design bloggers give an update on their room makeovers. And then on Thursdays, the guest participants (that’s me and a couple hundred of my blogging friends) link up our room updates.
I originally started this makeover in April, but had to bow out after an unexpected medical issue. But now I’m back to finish!
Like I said, I started with an orange bedroom! It’s no longer orange – we took care of that in Week One!
The plan was to work on building the window seat last week but that just didn’t work out. I just may have spread myself a little thin last week. But the good news is that I do have an update!
What did I get done? Well for starters, the trim and doors are painted. Which is no small feat. There are three six panel doors in this relatively small bedroom! And I honestly am not sure if they have ever been painted since this house was built about 17 years ago!
They now look soooo much better! I’m going to have a complete tutorial with tips and tricks for painting interior doors coming up next week so watch for that.
