This past weekend I went to Dallas for some family time. While I was there, I headed to the mall because really, there is no better mall than the one in Dallas. I went into Anthropology and immediately was drawn to their housewares. It wasn’t that it was anything all that new from what I’ve seen recently, but the decor had changed slightly and I was intrigued. They’ve always done a great job of mixing pretty and rustic elements, but it was beyond that. They started using wooden pallets to decorate with. I see those things lying around in alleys all the time, so of course I immediately think that I can recreate this in my home.
Here’s an example:
They used the pallets to create shelves and display pretty dishware. Genius! Not only that, they also used them to show off some artwork:
But my favorite were the shelves they recreated with the pallets to display colorful glassware:
But the pallets weren’t the only wooden item loved by Anthro, wooden crates were also repurposed:
This would be adorable in a nursery above the changing table (without the belts, bag and tights).
Now to convince Sean that we need to pick up the random pallets we see on the side of the road.
