It’s a DIY sort of thing…

So my buddies at work were making fun of me for the last few weeks when I asked the delivery man of our new office furniture if I could possible keep the shipping pallets. They sat in my office for a good month before I finally had some time last weekend to do something about it. Big thanks to Calvin, one of our Project Comeback participants at ACE, for bringing them to my apartment! A good sanding, some cleaning with mineral oil, and then three coats of spray-on matte varnish got my new headboard looking pretty good!

Goes to show you that you really can make something out of nothing! This whole project cost me less than $10, and only took about three hours. Don’t you just looooove DIY?

    That is a great project Ashley. I can't wait for Opa to see what you did, making a swan out of a ugly duckling. Oma
