Wall-Smart

Hello there!  And how was your weekend?  Mine was good, I played dodgeball of all things, and I’m so sore!  I guess I haven’t used my dodgeball muscles in a while.  Or ever.  Anyway, a couple things: First!  Sara from The Tang Way recently interviewed little ol’ me, and you can read all about it right HERE!  And Second!  Here comes some better after goodness, hot and fresh from the oven for you:
Nancy wanted to add something unique to her son’s bedroom, so she nailed some old boards on the wall!  I’m not making it sound as cool as it really is.  She deconstructed some pallets, whitewashed them and topped them with a display shelf for a focal wall that will grow with him!  Today a focal wall, tomorrow a headboard, and I’m sure the kid will try to use it as a climbing wall at some point in the future. Pretty darn clever. Read the whole story on her blog Owen’s Olivia.

    Careful with leaving loose art above the crib! Very dangerous in an earthquake.

  6. I grew up in the 70s, so I’ve seen enough wood on the wall to last me a lifetime. I agree with Chelle…LOVE THE CURTAINS…source?

  9. Thank you for the feature Lindsey!

  10. I love this idea and the room is beautiful. But (and this is a BIG BUT!) all pallets are sprayed/soaked in some pretty toxic and heinous bug sprays and things like formaldehyde as a preservative. I would be very hesitant to let my child or myself be exposed to the vicious outgassing that continues for years. That’s why they don’t recommend burning pallet wood in stoves for heat. People can end up with COPD, lung disease, and nervous system damage. Anytime you pick an industrial material to use in your home you should always find out the history of the item or how its made. That’s why so many industrial buildings are rarely turned into housing, too many toxic materials left behind in the walls, floors, and dirt surrounding. Even heavy marine sealant will usually not prevent outgassing, the chemicals literally burn right through.

  11. Can you please tell me what the wall color is in the after picture.
