I was very pleased when Ian Cremona contacted me with a link to¬†a post about¬†his living room, which he has furnished¬†with handmade furniture¬†made from repurposed wood pallets.¬† I have to admit I just love it when people do this – I’ve just moved house and am trying to furnish and decorate on almost zero budget right now, so¬†this is a real inspiration ūüôā¬† I have a real soft spot for wood pallet furniture, but I haven’t been brave enough to attempt any so far, so thanks a million to Ian for sharing!

Read the full details about each piece here on Ian’s blog.
