Learn how to make pallet furniture with these simple step by step tutorials. With all the indoor and outdoor furniture made from wood pallets these are all cost effective projects.
I have this thing about Pallets. I think it’s the ruggedness teamed with style that just makes pallets look amazing in furniture.
I recently celebrated my 40th birthday and not long before the party I spied some pallets sitting outside someone’s house on the side of the road. I didn’t know what I wanted to use them for, but I knew I wanted them!
So, a quick knock on the door, and bingo, I scored myself 3 pallets.
I literally propped them up in the garden, placed some lights on them and they looked amazing.
Now that the party is over, I have 3 awesome looking pallets that I need a project for.
Seeing as pallet furniture is so on trend right now, I thought I would share some of my research findings with you.
