We often have extra pallets floating around the warehouse that we don't need. Recently, someone asked me if they could have some of our stacked pallets. I asked what they were going to do with them, and loved the answer. Make garden furniture!
So, inspired by the idea, I started googling to see what ideas are out there for repurposing pallets. There are heaps of great ideas! Here's a few that I loved:
Pallet Patio Furniture by Place Of My Taste
I love this Pallet Patio Furniture
from Place of My Taste. It looks great, and it looks pretty simple, too. I reckon even I could manage to make these!
Pallet Patio Day Bed by Lovely Greens
This great Pallet Patio Day Bed by Lovely Greens
looks easy to make, too. And the article has some really useful information on what to look for when you're finding pallets. Some pallets are sprayed with toxic chemicals, so check this article out and learn what to avoid!
Pallet Wood Chair by Funky Junk Interiors
Rustic chic! Doesn't this Pallet Wood Chair by Funky Junk Interiors
look great? And it's pretty much two pallets leaned together with some posts for arms. Can't get much simpler than that!
DIY Patio Bar from Wood Pallets by A Mitten Full of Savings
Who wouldn't want a bar on their patio? Especially a cool, cheap as chips one like this from A Mitten Full of Savings
. And of course, it's eco friendly, because you're saving the pallets from having to be put into landfill. I'll drink to that!
Pallet Wall by Project Nursery
It's not all about furniture, either. This Pallet Wall by Project Nursery
looks fantastic, if a little time consuming. 17 pallets pulled apart, stripped and sanded!
Pallet Swing Bed by The Merry Thought
The Pallet Swing Bed by The Merry Thought
looks dreamy. I love the idea. I'm just not sure that it's practical at my place - I'd be worried about the ropes (not to mention the birds in the trees above!).
Pallet Wood Bench and Gabion Table by A Piece Of Rainbow
This combination by A Piece of Rainbow
looks more like something my carpenter brother would make. If you're handy, it might be one for you. If you're more of a slapdash DIY-er like me, perhaps we should move on. Looks great, though!
Timber Pallet Chillout Lounge by Freckles and Fluff
Much more my speed. The Timber Pallet Chillout Lounge
is very straightforward, and it looks great! It would be perfect for a kids' rumpus room, too.
Pallet Wine Rack by Virginia Sweet Pea
A pallet wine rack
! Now you're talking. Hang this above your pallet bar and it's your place for drinks tonight!
Two-Pallet Potting Bench by Home Talk
Pallets are perfect for the garden, and this Potting Bench
is such a handy idea for a gardener.
Pallet Day Bed by Pretty Prudent
I am in love with this Pallet Day Bed
! Of course, at my place, the dog would end up sleeping on it! The wheels are a great idea, so you can move it around easily. And what a great use for a mattress that you no longer need in the house.
Wood Pallet Garden Frames by New England
More great gardening ideas with this Wood Pallet Garden Frame
. This would be especially good if you're in a rental property and don't want to dig the garden up to grow veggies. Or perhaps it could be an easy gardening project for kids at school?
Pallet Strawberry Planter by Lovely Greens
Another great idea for kids - a Strawberry Pallet Planter
. It's an easy way to grow strawberries at home, and what kid doesn't love to pick and eat fresh strawberries?
Pallet Vertical Garden by DIY Enthusiasts
Here's a great pallet vertical garden
for small spaces. This is another simple project, and it looks great, too!
Pallet Balcony Garden by Life On The Balcony
This Pallet Balcony Garden
is similar to the vertical pallet garden, but there are great, detailed instructions, so I've included it, too. I just love the combination of plants in this one!
