Finding pallets projects with a boho vibe

Boho style has been very appealing to me lately. I like the vibrant colors, lots of colors, and patterns and the flowers and houseplants. Its a little bit retro. And it feels uncomplicated and natural. You can express yourself with DIY projects. And when you mix recycled pallets and boho style.....  well here is my round up of inspired creations:
_____________________________________
I love this elegant Boho Elephant  wall art.

Cuttingedgestencils.com has a step by step guide to stencil feathers on a pallet canvas.

SOURCE: Cuttingedgestencils.com
Visit Carol Lynn Iyer Etsy shop to see this beautiful jewelry holder. She made it out of an repurposed wood fence. She has many more creations that are just stunning!
SOURCE: Etsy
Talk about free and easy - these shelves found on cozydiy.com could be created with free pallet wood and inexpensive rope.

SOURCE: cozydiy.com
This triangle shelf tutorial at petitemodernlife did not use recycled pallets, but just imagine them replaced with weathered gray pallet wood - they would be gorgeous. These triangle shelves are everywhere and are sometimes called mountain shelves.
SOURCE: petitemodernlife.stfi.re
 Boho cozy! Found on thisisglamorous.com
SOURCE: thisisglamorous.com
Do you belong in the wildflowers? I love this simple message on this pallet sign found on SheridanWoods Etsy Shop.
SOURCE: ETSY
Simple, sunny, happy, colorful - that is boho to me. Find this look at styledcanvas.com
SOURCE: styledcanvas.com
This pallet sign is a positive reminder - seen on MrsSBarefootStudio Etsy shop.
SOURCE: ETSY
Found on Pinterest (no link?) this piece is amazing. It is being used as a table runner, but I could also see it as wall art over a sofa, or above a long bookcase.
SOURCE
Inspired? I am! I am going to try one today.... I will look in my pallet stash and perhaps try painting a feather....
SOURCE: freepeople.com blog
 maybe say "Free Spirit".... I will update if/when I get it done. 😊
