Pinterest is my happy place!! I can spend hours on end ogling and saving stuff in the very many categories i have created. Follow me @hazelkirigo
One particular obsession i have on Pinterest is palette furniture! Oh the possibilities!!
I also happen to believe in the words of Paulo Coelho in one of his most popular books The Alchemist, the world listens to your hearts desires and conspires to make it come true, or was that The Secret? Oh well, the principle is the same. So the universe responded to my desire to make palette furniture and a delivery was made to our office and there were palettes left behind and they were not going to be used!! When the Universe speaks, you listen! I quickly whisked all four palettes in my car, thank goodness for station wagons with expandable boots! So this past weekend i decided to go for it.
What i used for this project:
- 4 Palettes
- 1 small (3×6) mattress cut to fit the palette
- 2 big cushions
- Masaai blanket
Putting together the palettes to form a seat. I placed one at the back and stack the remaining three pieces.
Behold we have a seat!
Next was to place the soft furnishings. Mattress covered with the masaai blanket as the seat and the big cushions as the back rest.
The final look of the balcony.
Gladly the weather has improved and we can enjoy some sunny afternoons and even some evening drinks in the balcony!! No plants yet, those will feature later, my daughter will happily much away the plants and soil!
Keep it DIY!
