Usually used in shipping, wooden pallets can be turned into sleek designs for both indoor and outdoor furniture. Using basic woodworking skills, wooden pallets can be turned into coffee tables, sofas, beds, chairs, patio seating, shoe cabinets, bookcases, kitchen worktops and almost any piece of furniture you desire. Wooden pallets are eco-friendly and can withstand heavy weights and rough handling. They are inexpensive and sometimes free, and they look great for both indoor and outdoor furniture.
One of the joys of making furniture from pallets is that a rough, less-than-perfect build will only add to the rustic, shabby chic appearance that makes this style of furniture so appealing. Wooden pallets can be remodeled into attractive and unique pieces of furniture for any part of your home, including the lounge, bedroom, kitchen, garden, bathroom, patio and hallways.
Wooden Pallet Dining Tables
Whether you want to create a dining or a kitchen table, wooden pallets are particularly useful and inexpensive. And since they are lightweight, you can move them around (even for outdoor use) just like any other pallet furniture. If you are going to use the table for prolonged outdoor use, use formaldehyde or a coat of paint to protect it from outdoor environment, including fungal growths. A DIY pallet table is fun to make, plus you will have a great satisfaction every day knowing that you made it all by yourself.
Wooden Pallet Couches
Don’t we all love to have a comfortable couch to relax on and enjoy our favorite TV shows or movies? Wooden pallet couches are some of the easiest and most inexpensive pallet furniture that you can create out of timber pallets. They are not only comfortable and unique, but unlike other couches, they also have open spaces allowing indoor environments to be airy.
For the best and most comfortable wooden pallet couch, add some steel feet to make it stable and immoveable. Then stuff it with feathers and wool to make it cozy and comfortable. Finally, add some thick cushions, and your wooden pallet couch is ready for your comfort.
Wooden Pallet Beds
Although beds and bed frames are expensive items, a bedroom will be incomplete without one. One piece of furniture that you can easily create out of wooden pallets is a bed, and you can accomplish this with very little effort or woodworking tools or skills. The prime advantage of a pallet bed is that not only does it require less effort and cost to create, but it can be easily configured into a different shape or design, size and style and still provide the same basic function of a comfortable and solid bed. At the very least, all you need is to join the pallets into a reasonable bed frame size, drop a mattress and add a few finishing touches to make it look really impressive.
Pallet beds are inexpensive and can be reconfigured into new bed shapes to meet your bedroom feel and style. You can varnish or stain the bare wood for a rustic look or paint it to match the color scheme of the room. The addition of brightly colored bed sheets and multiple sized pillows with fairy lights tucked between the pallets can create a stunning and inviting space.
