Easiest pallet bed you'll ever see. Lay 4 pallets on a spray painted rug.

Paint only the pallets you'll be able to see around the mattress and then accessorize maybe with some homemade candles, signs and pillow covers. Oh, and then put it on your roof to create a rooftop bedroom. And, if you live in the Caribbean ... then it will be a Caribbean rooftop bedroom ... and who doesn't want one of those?!? It's definitely my favorite space. :) http://www.thespacebetweenblog.net/2012/05/25/pallet-bed-pillow-covers-diy-candles/

Use old doors to DIY a rustic and eclectic coffee table.

I recently found two old doors in a construction dumpster on the side of the road. After doing a bit of prep work with the old paint (including scraping and sanding for days and days) I decided on a coffee table design that was so easy to assemble. The only power tool I used was an electric drill. I was able to use parts from both of the doors for all of the wood parts of the coffee table and keep as much of the rusty old hardware on as possible. I added casters to the coffee table to make it easy to maneuver. You know when someone wants to clean in here. I'm not sure who that person is, but I thought I was being very thoughtful with the caster decision. :)

i had so much fun taking two fugly canvases i bought at goodwill and turning them, home decor

I had so much fun taking two fugly canvases I bought at Goodwill and turning them into silhouettes of my pups.

I actually was able to just flip the canvases over to the white side and print photos of the dogs on my home printer, trace and paint outside the lines. No fancy cutting equipment required. http://www.thespacebetweenblog.net/2012/02/09/diy-canvas-silhouettes/ If you make your own I'd love to see them. Please feel free to share them on my facebook page!

DIY a sturdy and good looking floating shelf!

Using all scrap wood, and with the help of some advice I got from KMS Woodworkers here on Hometalk, I built my own floating shelf. I was thrilled to realize it was as intimidating a project as I thought it was going to be. I didn't make a complete torsion box, but my own 'version' of one. (Gotta love a good DIY improvisation.) I share my tips for cutting a straight line with a jig saw and what I found for the decorative front detail of the shelf in my post, http://www.thespacebetweenblog.net/2012/07/30/how-to-build-a-floating-shelf-tutorial/.

Thinking of taking a vacation to the Caribbean island of Curacao?

You could rent the beautiful home where Bachelorette Emily and her daughter, Ricki, stayed while they were here. This magnificent, Dutch Landhuis style house is an historic renovation in the heart of Curacao. Any Bachelorette watchers will recognize the pool as the location where Jef met Ricki. here, http://thespacebetweenblog.net/2012/07/24/house-tour-in-curacao-bachelorette/

The Space Between
The Space Between
About meI'm Karah, a small town girl from the North East who finds herself house hunting in Key West after owning and renovating 3 1/2 homes over the course of 8 years. I will literally try anything (pallet word art, hutch turned tv stand, wedding card ornament, driftwood Christmas tree) to make the most of the space I find myself in. That little space between what has been and what will be. It'd be so cool if you'd like to join me as I DIY my way through an adventurous life with the ones I love.
