Daisy's Crate Bed
DIY CRATE PET BED :: Tutorial & pics! Made out of scrap 1x4's from old furniture porjects. She wanted it to look like an old weathered crate so the construction was basic. She added small castor wheels & appled a vinegar & steel wool solution to the wood, but then finished the look w/ some dark walnut danish oil then dry brushed paint then more oil to age the paint color. She added the name & "No. 1" w/ the freezer paper transfer method. All steps & pics included. | #petbed #diypetbed
A Wood Pallet Turned Front-Facing Bookshelf
We called the cast-off trend last year. We saw beds and tables being made out of cast-offs like wood cable spools and wood pallets. We’re adding one more cast-off-to-furniture project to our vault.That’s a standing front-facing bookshelf made from two wood pallets above. We found this on the talented Ana White’s website made by one of her readers. Unfortunately, there isn’t a how-to for this project, but Anna does have a ton of other great uses for wood pallets.
