When it comes to architectural style, rental apartments can be bland and lifeless, with little room for creative design expression. So what’s the renter with a dream of having a beautiful outdoor space to do? Here’s an inspiring story of how two renters turned a bland outdoor patio into a gorgeous tropical-style outdoor retreat using pallets . Because they were renting, the creative husband and wife team at A Piece of Rainbow couldn’t do any drilling into or attaching to existing walls. They also couldn’t paint existing surfaces, including the floor, walls or ceiling. But they wanted to achieve a built-in look while keeping everything easy to take apart when it’s time to move. Almost the entire project was done with thrown away pallets – the living wall, the furniture and stenciled pallet wood floors – just to prove that not only can one have a magazine worthy “remodel” as renters and it can be done with minimal cost as well. Check out the pictures of the final project and then head over to A Piece of Rainbow for tutorials on how to make everything – from the pallet furniture to the tropical living wall. + A Piece of Rainbow Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: A Piece of Rainbow , building pallet furniture , DIY , DIY pallet , DIY pallet garden , DIY pallet patio , DIY pallet patio furniture , DIY patio furniture , pallet furniture , pallet furniture ideas , patio furniture , reader submission , recycled design , reused design
