More pallet projects

Do you remember when I asked — here on Tumblr and on the Unconsumption Facebook page — about your interest in seeing other items made from repurposed pallets? The replies were overwhelmingly positive.

So my Unconsumption colleagues and I continue to be on the lookout for pallet projects we haven’t yet covered, such as this garden installation featured on French architect Patrick Nadeau’s Web site. Interesting use of pallets, isn’t it?

(Spotted on Pinterest here, via friend and landscape designer Susan Cohan.)

It’s wine o’clock (somewhere) — time to share a wine-related repurposing idea:

Use wine corks as cabinet pulls! (via Apartment Therapy - The Kitchn)

Check out Unconsumption’s growing collection of wine-oriented repurposing examples here. If you’ve seen something we’ve missed, let us know (in the Disqus comments), and we’ll feature it as next Friday’s wine o’clock special.

Cheers!

Amazing News!

I’ll be moving to Germany two months early!  I will finally get to live with the Husdby and Twin and I will bike Europe and sample the beverages!
