pallet furniture.

this morning, between writing clinical logs and care plans for patients - because *ahem* i would never procrastinate or do anything other than my studies on a monday morning - derrr.....uh-huh - i came across this lovely headboard via apartment therapy:

andrew and i never bought a headboard for our bed because, honestly, that seems like the last thing one needs when paying tuition and writing term papers while double-fisting peanut-butter-and-jellies. regardless, as we're looking toward moving this summer to another, slightly larger apartment (think 700 sq feet over our current 500), we're dreaming up some ways that we could cheaply build our own furniture, to easily fit whatever space we end up in. between andrew's woodworking capabilities and my white-washing and sewing skills, we should be able to come up with something that works.

i also found these couches made from discarded wooden pallets via design squish. i'm pretty sure that i can finagle a few of these for free from costco and sew some cushions using quilt batting and thick muslin - cheap AND can easily be broken down for moving - which is always a plus for andrew and me. definitely will stick this in my back pocket for a weekend project this summer...
