Do you Pinterest? If you don't you should. Its much like an online sketchbook of images and ideas. I have been looking at lots of ideas for repurposing pallets. I was ready to go to work when I realized that I have been holding onto something for nearly 7 years waiting for a good idea to happen. When we moved into our palace it had a multitude of falling down fence types. One was this beautiful louvered fence:
Far too beautiful for me to imagine throwing it all away. Well 7 years later I was on the verge of hauling it away because the perfect idea had not yet happened. In the nick of time I realized this would make a fabulous head board! I had to start by cutting in down to size. This required my trusty sawzall. You must be careful with this bad girl! I am always amazed that I have not lost a limb each time I use it. Don't let that strike fear in you though be cause it is a very handy demolition tool. You just need to show it the respect it is due.
I think I ended up with a beautiful and unique headboard. Someone spent a lot of time building this fence. It would appear many nails were driven with a trusty hammer. I am glad that I got to preserve a piece of it!
