Pallet Crates

I am going crazy for furniture made of pallet crates! It was not until recently I learned of their names. We actually had a lot of them when we had a delivery of bricks but now we have only one that I can see. Perhaps there are more underneath the gigantic pile of stuff that has take over our garden - bricks, boxes, doors, cardboard, wires, buckets... I am currently sitting by the window that is right next to the garden, so I can see it all!

 I love the idea that something attractive and useful can be made from these. 

Wondering how I can transform my pallet crate...

After much debate on the colour scheme for the walls, I now have two pots of paint waiting for to add life to the white room. I was going to have soft, neutral tones, but in the end I have chosen strong, bright and vibrant colours! One of the colours in particular makes me a bit nervous, but also excited. Honestly, I'm a bit surprised that i've chosen it!

 With the studio slowly getting closer to completion, I have been fantasizing about all the beautiful furniture I could fill my room with!

Here are some lovely finds!

4 x 3 Vintage Locker Basket Unit with Multicolored Drawers and Casters

 REHAB's original locker basket unit is a fantastic storage piece composed of refinished mid century, all-American locker bins in a welded steel frame. Find it here.

2 x 3 Vintage Locker Basket Unit in Summer Mix Baskets and White Frame

Featured here is a 2 x 3 with white, yellow, sage and ocean colored baskets and white powder-coated frame. Find it here

Soho 6 Drawer

I do like this drawer chest! Find it here


These unusual peices from Entwurf-Direct, a company based in Hamburg, have completely caught my attention! Many sukis would happily live in any of these!

This one is my favourite!

If I had the space, I would have them all!!!
