We’ve discovered our new fave way to decorate on the cheap. It’s no secret that home decor can cost a pretty penny. That designer bed set of your dreams? Totally not in the budget. A Picasso-inspired work of art? Not happening. We’ve been pumped about pallets for a while now. Not only are they affordable (use them to redecorate without spending a thing!), but they’re the perfect way to personalize your nest. So pull up a pallet and get ready to explore the many ways you can sprinkle the love throughout your home with these 18 totally pallet-able ideas.

1. Love Headboard: Does your bedroom need an update? We’re not underestimating the power of a new coat of paint, but here’s a fresh idea: Revamp your digs with a rustic-chic headboard. How’s that for a bedroom you’ll actually want to live in? (via House Tweaking)

2. Monogrammed Chevron Tray: Show off your personality with a monogrammed chevron pallet tray. (via SAS Interiors)
