Up-cycling: Pallet Projects for your home

Pinterest is a dangerous thing really isn't it?  I can waste spend important hours of my day pinning and re-pinning ideas, from recipes and party decor to home interiors and art.  A recent favourite pastime has been upcycling, and if you're ever stuck for ideas you won't have to search too hard on this platform, there are so many creative people eager to share their makes.

Upcycling is a genius form of recycling and it can be so creative if done right, though, given some of my first attempts, I can imagine there are a few Pinterest Fails before perfecting the skills needed!

Here's my top pick from my Pallet Project board!


There are some fabulously creative people on The Lost Lanes too, who have worked hard to perfect their own form of up-cycling from skateboard decks to bicycle chains. The creativity is astounding and well worth a look!
