DECORATING (your tiny home/cabin) WITH LITTLE OR NO BUDGET...


This one's so fun/funky that it could make for its own "printed wall hanging OF a wall". LOTS of time must have gone into this, and I wonder if the boards were found "as is" or painted, and retouched individually. A time consuming, but easy, project I'd imagine- just watch out for old lead painted wood!
     I'd LOVE to deck out even just one wall of a tiny house, cabin, or even a treehouse with something like this. My brother Dustin has a pallet wall in his home from a ton of forklift pallets I dumped at his house for him, and it looks great- we'll have to do a video at some point still...

  1. Wow, that's really cool! Yea, gotta watch out for lead paint, ugh.
    Here in upper Westchester County, NY people have their big trash out for pick-up now. Find wood furniture, even if it's broken, makes for good free wood to make walls out of. I'm thinking dresser drawer fronts with the knobs/pulls left on them could make cool hooks to hang things off of :D
    And if that's not drawers left whole make great garden beds :)

  2. I absolutely love and want this in my house. Don't know if I can find pallets or how to transport to my home but I am going to make it my goal this winter. Any suggestions?r
