I'm bringing one of these home from work.
I'm jumping on the bandwagon with the latest home decor trend that I keep seeing: shipping pallets.
I am seeing these everywhere on Pinterest with so many great, creative ideas.
As a coffee table,
repurposed into a headboard,
build a daybed,
and miscellaneous storage solutions.
This trend is everywhere!
I'm fortunate that my workplace has a warehouse and a warehouse manager who is totally cool with me taking a pallet or two home to work with.
What I plan to use my pallet for is something similar to this in our guest room:
I like the idea of giving our guests practical storage solutions. Sure, we have a dresser in our guest room, but we hardly expect our guests to unpack their suitcases and use the drawers for one or two nights over. But offering them a place to hang their coat, keys, purse or small bag makes sense. I even like the idea of having some sort of bench or chair below for them to store their overnight bag and shoes.
Of course, we first need to get the walls repainted and a few other things knocked off my guest room to-do list (Post coming soon, I swear. I've been writing the guest room post for over a week now.) before we are ready to install. But I'm eager to get the ball rolling by priming and painting my new pallet.
Any trends your dying to try?
