I’ve seen SO many cool pallet DIY projects on Pinterest, but then can’t find the source..or it is spam..or the tutorial is no where to be found. That’s why I decided to go through and find some of my favorite pallet projects I have seen floating around the web, including the tutorials to create these fabulous projects.
Wooden pallets, which are used in the shipping industry are typically a low end commodity. Pallets will get reused a few times before either being scrapped as trash or used as firewood.
Most often made from inexpensive junk species of lumber (whatever is most widely available), wood pallets are the perfect candidate for up-cycling & recycling. So check out these projects and perhaps get inspired to make something cool for your home.
As a side note, pallets can typically be found at hardware stores and if you ask nicely. I also saw a stack that said “free” at a landscape company down the road from my house. Another option would be to check out Craigslist under the “free” section.
What initially inspired me to create this post was when I saw my neighbors outside creating the table below:
Above is a picture of the table that initially inspired my two neighbors. You can find the full tutorial here. Pretty sweet, huh? I think it’s awesome!
