Friday Finds 11.7

Hello all! I hope November has introduced itself kindly this year–I know here at least that winter chill turned on like a switch. I love the cold though, so I’m not going to complain–unless it doesn’t snow soon. Then I’ll complain. I’m feeling particularly earthy today, so I thought I’d share some recycled wood projects for the crafts-people out there. Good luck!


First of all, project aside, this puppy is absolutely adorable. Build this fun modern pet bed for your pooch with this tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. I love the bright colors and bold pattern, but you can make it blend with your decor just as easily!



Looking for a fresh spin in your living room? Try this recycled barn door coffee table from Cleverly Inspired. Bring a bit of rustic flair inside your home and get a fun hand-crafted piece all in one!



For a more subtle wooden touch, try these pallet wood wall pieces from Craftberry Bush. I like the subtle, washed-out look and the relaxing, brown tones showing through underneath–perfect for adding some calm to your room.



These wooden crate stairs from Funky Junk Interiors are so unique and fun! I absolutely love this idea. Hit a couple antique shops or thrift stores and see if you can find some fun crates to incorporate into your new stairwell!



And lastly, if you’re looking for that missing piece of flair in your bedroom, take a look at this modern headboard design from Fresh American Style. While the completely white look soothes, funky mix-matched colors would add some oomf to your space!



And there you have it. Until next time, Style Spotters! Happy crafting–the trees thank you!

Get the Look: A Geometric Headboard

I’ve been noticing a return to traditional (even ornate) forms lately, but reinterpreted in a more modern way. Chippendale furniture is one example. It can be picked up at flea markets and in antique shops, but I’ve also spotted some variations on the look from big-box retailers.

Here’s a bedroom sporting the look with a Chippendale headboard. This one is likely a vintage find that was painted.

You can get a similar look with white walls and a bed featuring layered linens and a geometric headboard, like the one below.
