|Pallet Wood Feature Wall and Window Seat|
In today's post, I am sharing part one of a two-part series focused on creating a DIY pallet book nook from a previously unused space in my upstairs bedroom. We will start with the woodworking elements of the project and then finish with handcrafted decorating touches (a homemade cushion, pillows, rug, and other decor to cozy up the space).
Because I have poured so much of myself into my master bedroom renovations, it has become my favorite room in the entire house. One last improvement remained to make this space visually and functionally cohesive. There was a funky "hallway" in the room that housed my exercise bike (because it didn't lend itself to much else). The thing that really bugged me about that long, narrow space was a weird, uneven application of drywall. I couldn't knock that wall down because it housed my closet and was most likely structural (helping support the roof). And, hanging, mudding, texturizing, and painting new sheetrock just wasn't on my bucket list. Been there, done that. Not my idea of a good time. So, what to do?
