solution for a bed, why not go all out and imagine a small home theatre using
these pallets as the primary frame of the couch/bedding. If you frequently have
guests over, this is a great idea for the entertainment area of your home.
A coffee table.
wooden pallets stacked and screwed together, there you have it, your own coffee
or center table perfect in the living room or by your balcony. You can use the
in-between storage for magazines, books and other storage purposes. Paint it
with the desired color you want or leave it bare, it would surely work and pull
off the atmosphere of the room altogether.
furniture/decor for your balcony.
Surely your balcony is reserved for your ‘alone’ time.
However, you should rethink and consider to have it used for spontaneous
hangout area for you and your friends. These crates that can be used for
storage, shelves, table, chair and other purposes will definitely work well for
your balcony/spontaneous-friday-night-sessions with friends. Or, you can just
‘netflix and chill’ here and use the crates for your own comfort and desire.
Pallet pet beds.
Don’t leave your pet behind and let
them join your pallet obsession! Surely this won’t take up too much of your
time and too many wooden pallets, make a bed for your pet and never see them
sleep on the cold pavement. Also, if it’s just too comfy for your pet, you
might finally have your bed all to yourself since they have their own
comfortable bed now. Make sure that you put there a cozy pillow and toys they
can snug over when they sleep.
Okay, we get your point that the
purpose of shelves is to used as a functional storage space. But hey, that does
not necessarily mean you can’t have fun and be creative with your storage
items. It could be a decorative display that’s been missing in your room. This
example though is made of reclaimed lumber but you can do it as well using
pallets. This is a great and inexpensive project you can do by yourself that
only require minimal resources which you can most definitely find witting in
your father’s garage or backyard.
A perfect rocker.
any better. A rocker is a perfect nook for your reading pleasure or if you just
want to relax, breathe the fresh air and release stress. You can place this on
your yard or porch, of course place it where you’ll have a serene sight. If you
want, you can go big and make a hanging day bench/bed where you can lie on your
back and just feel the wind toggle you side to side.
Flower or plant pots.
This is similar with the display
storage pallet project but aside from putting in frames, books, and other home
decor accessories, you use it for your plants. This will definitely look great
in your garden and it’s a sure stand out that your guests, especially those who
has their own garden, will certainly drool over.
might be the easiest in the list, you might be lucky because some pallets are
already in good shape as per your bed’s headboard. If you want, you can just
repaint it, redesign and the likes of it. If you found a good looking pallet
and the one that’s in perfect shape, you just have to attach it to your bed.
