---let the season of cosiness begin---

Make your own cosy light

Here I am again. Hope you had a wonderful month in September. Summer is over and the more dusky season begins: Hello autumn!. I often tend to be somehow sad and a little depressed during this colder + darker period due to the lack of sunlight; but changing my point of view on a lot of things in my daily life, (getting the best out of everything) showed me how these colder and sunless days can offer loads of brilliant moments as well. Especially when it comes to….. C O S I N E S S. HA! Don’t say you’re surprised now! (how dare you!)

Make your own desk using old wooden pallets

Never underestimate the versatility of old wooden pallets.

  How I came to this DIY furniture project.... It all began with my Mum's search for a very, very narrow desk. Unfortunately, she didn't find the right one. That's why I have done plenty of research on DIY furniture projects. The idea had to be SIMPLE, FEASIBLE and AFFORDABLE... Annnnd... If you also add RECYCLABLE – Pallets are just perfect to fulfill those criteria. You can find pallets in Garden stores or Hardware stores or maybe even your neighbors want to get rid of their pallets. If you find some old ones don't be upset by their dirty look. YES, used pallets are UGLY. But the cool thing is that your furniture (or your desk) made of old pallets has a lot of character! Pallet_Desk6 Voilà, ready to take a look at my DIY tutorial?

Birch wood? Yes!

Do you want to give your home interiors a personal touch? So maybe I've got something for you. Here is a simple DIY idea using birch wood to freshen up your furniture. For this shelving concept I needed a few white shelves at an affordable price and some birch branches, of course.

 DIY | Ikea meets Birch | Impressions, Luxembourgish DIY Blogger So, I went to IKEA... When walking through this store, it is like walking through a forest of ideas and inspirations. Ooh yes, I have to admit that it is a quite dangerous place for me, I always end up buying things I do not really need. Maybe you know what I am talking about and you have a similar feeling? I am sure about that :-)  Bon okay... Back to the shelves: I've bought a few of these LACK floating wall shelves. In white. Their clean and sleek look fits perfectly with the pale birch branches. So take a walk not only through the IKEA store. Take a walk through a REAL forest. It is a perfect place for getting plenty of ideas and inspirations using wood. AND! You will see, after a forest walk you'll feel cosier.  Let's have a look to my tutorial.
