Hello, lovelies. As I sit here and wait for the red dye to set in my hair, I thought I'd share with you the exciting beginnings of my biggest DIY project to date. If you read up on 8 Inspiring DIY Pallet Sofas, you may already have a clue as to what these four pallets are doing in my living room. That's right, I'm making a pallet sofa!
Whilst driving to work a couple days ago, I spotted a nice pile of pallets near the nearby dorm buildings' dumpster. I slowed waaaay down like a total creeper in Bravie, my SUV. And what to my wondering eyes did appear? But some clean, unrotten, lovely pallets just begging to be taken home by a DIY-maven like myself.
Alas, I was running late to work and not feeling strong. So I spent the next eight hours at my job daydreaming about those pallets, hoping that they'd be there by nightfall. I drove back by at night, but still wasn't feeling like a heavy lifter. So I went to bed and dreamt about the pallets. (Not really, I had nightmares about bugs but that's a whole 'nother blog post...)
Bright and early the next morning (around 11:30 am... heh) I got up the gumption to load those babies into my Bravie. It took some might, motivation, and muscle. But I managed to squeeze all four into the SUV and drive off to work. Glad I picked 'em up when I did! It stormed the rest of the day and they would've gotten nasty wet.
So here they are sitting in my living room. Waiting to be dressed up with a mattress and cushions and pillows and throws and maybe a canopy or chandelier overhead. Oh yes, oh yes. I can see it now...
But I gotta go wash this dye outta my hair. So have a lovely weekend!
In the meantime, search "pallet sofa" on Pinterest. ;)

What a good way to kill time while hair dying - I can never wait for that time to be up. This looks like it's going to be awesome. And we haven't heard about Girl Next Dorm in a bit, how's that going?
Now I'm excited! I can't wait to see how your project turns out. How lucky are you to find such nice pallets.
