Naturally, I am a huge fan of anything recycled, re-used, up-cycled and restored, so when I recently came across an amazing recycled wooden pallet table in a friend’s backyard patio, I started to consider the many possibilities that these wooden pallets could provide in terms of furniture and design pieces.
If you are the DIY-minded type, pallet projects are going to be a simple task for you, the only limit will be your imagination! As far as where to get pallets, small garden and hardware stores get regular deliveries on pallets, as do auto shops, lawnmower and tool stores and mom and pop style renovation shops. These businesses will often sell their used pallets for very low prices, and some will even give them away if you offer to take them off their hands!
Desks, chairs, planters, bookshelves, even staircases etc. There are SO many uses for these things, and they can be refinished, painted and sanded down to suit any design aesthetic you might be going for, indoors and out. Check out this collection of images I’ve put together for inspiration!
