I wanted a little privacy screen on my deck and decided a pallet would be the perfect (and free!) solution! To freshen it up, I painted the pallet a cheery yellow and filled it with summer flowers and vines! Now it doubles as a garden and provides just the privacy I needed! It was an easy DIY project, you can find the how to details at The Inspired Room http://theinspiredroom.net/2012/05/28/the-pa...
This is one of my favorite projects that I've ever done because it proves a simple fact: Pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive (and in fact, it can be pretty cheap). I made this
chrysanthemum mirror using the cheapest plastic spoons I could find at my local grocery store. I glued them to inexpensive MDF wreath forms and then painted them with craft paint. Minimal cost with big impact. My kind of decorating! :-D
