From the living room to the bedroom or even the garden, the palette is undeniably the trendy recycled material of the moment. It is found everywhere and very often it costs nothing. An essential eco-responsible trend, it allows you to make furniture that is as beautiful as it is solid while emphasizing the authenticity of your interior decoration. With it, give free rein to your creativity by assembling and painting it as you wish! From the chest of drawers, if you add drawers to it, through the bed, the armchair or even the sofa, the wooden pallets offer many decorative possibilities.


Don’t throw away your glass bottles and jars! Whether these containers contain water, soda, milk or even wine, they come in all sizes and in a wide variety of colours. They will be essential elements of your DIY creations. You can also revamp them with a little paint or masking tape, the famous Japanese adhesive, to make original containers. You will also like to divert them by transforming them into real decorative objects: vases, pencil holders, terrariums or even lights by installing candles or hanging bulbs inside them… Here again, your creativity will guide you to create a original decor!


The barrel comes out of the cellar to find new uses in our interiors! Particularly appreciated in industrial decorations for its rustic and authentic side as well as its mixture of wood and metal, it can find new uses. Without transformation, it can simply be used as a bar table for eating on the go. For the more DIY enthusiasts, it can be transformed into a storage unit or even an armchair if you combine it with some well-filled cushions. Note that you can opt for a traditional oak barrel or a metal barrel!


Wooden crates and crates are economical and easy to recover. Transforming them is just as easy! You have two options, paint them or leave them in their own juice. This second option is the most popular. We particularly appreciate the wine crates which seduce us with their wooden composition, but also with the winegrower’s logo which indicates the origin of production of the wine while bringing a vintage touch. These crates and crates can be stacked, fixed to the wall or simply placed on the floor or on a piece of furniture. In any case, they will offer additional economical storage space. We like their modular aspect which allows you to adapt them to each space according to your needs. With a few crates or wooden crates,

If you have an old tree trunk in your garden and you’re not sure what to do with it, we have a solution for you. Reuse it in your upcycling decor! It will breathe an authentic and raw style into your interior. It can be transformed into a low stool, armchair, coffee table or dining table. You can also choose to use its base to make it the leg of your table. You will need a few tools and patience to transform the trunk into a real interior piece of furniture. If you are looking for a rustic and original decoration, this choice is made for you!


Old suitcases lying around in your cupboards? These items can quickly become cumbersome, but you don’t necessarily need to throw them away. Turn them into storage furniture! And yes, the suitcases offer beautiful spaces to store your belongings, so you might as well exploit them. Plus, old suitcases have a nice vintage charm that makes them easy to incorporate into decorations. Among the most frequent diversions, let us mention the console or even the coffee table in the living room.


The wooden ladder can be as practical as it is aesthetic! We particularly love the spotted painter’s ladder for an assertive authentic style. For the wisest, we prefer the natural wooden ladder which fits just as well into a vintage, Scandinavian or bohemian interior. Repainting it entirely may also be a possibility. This decorative object can be placed directly on a wall and can be customized by adding or removing bars. You can thus transform it into a towel rack or a coat rack with a few hangers and even a bookcase if you install it parallel to the ground.

The makeover of old objects is very fashionable! Whether you want to transform them into furniture, designer pendant lights or other decorative objects, they will create a warm, bohemian or ethnic atmosphere in your interior decoration. Making your own furniture or decor is all the more rewarding if you can boast to your friends of having given new life to one of your old objects while doing good for the planet. What are you waiting for to go antiquing in a flea market or in your attic for objects to revamp?
