Aaron has shared a project with us before - he sent us photos of his terrarium back in June. He's back for the holidays with this impressive 13 foot tree made up of...
...wood from leftover shipping pallets.
Aaron works at Nouveau Classics in Nashville, where the visual merchandiser, Dann Boyles, came up with this decorative theme for the holidays for the shop. Dann says, "This has already been a super weird year in the land of retail. I don't think that is any surprise. So as a visual merchandiser for a furniture boutique in Nashville, I had to get creative.
Basically, let's look fabulous but don't spend any money. Oh, back to my roots! I knew that this holiday season should reflect a scaled back sensibility and that the organic back to our roots message needed to be the main statement. No reason it shouldn't still feel lux.
Anyway, I had been walking past a stack of old shipping pallets for months, wondering what else they could become. A 13 foot tree, 5 huge wreaths and just about anything else you can imagine later, and I think we have a winning look. I want this tree for my house but I think I'm too tired for any more pallet creations for this Christmas. All I have to say is, I am so thankful for the brad nailer my parents got me for Christmas a few years ago!"
Thanks, Aaron and Dann!
