What do I do with Them?
Say you’ve managed to get your hands on a few good-quality pallets from a local business. You might be wondering how to repurpose pallets now. Well, as far as specific projects go, there’s an infinitude of them available online. So many, in fact, that it would be impossible to outline any in this blog that isn’t readily available with a Google search. However, what we will do is suggest a few different types of pallet projects to get you thinking about how you might be able to repurpose yours.
One of the most popular ways to repurpose pallets is to make tables out of them. This isn’t particularly surprising, because the pallet’s natural shape lends itself well to being converted into a table. There are a wide array of pallet table designs out there, as you may have guessed, but the most common seems to be the coffee table pallet. The coffee table pallet consists of a glass sheet that’s connected to one side of the pallet and wheels that are connected to the other, making for a sleek, low-to-the-ground design that most DIYer’s could master.
Couches, sofas, davenports — whatever you call them in your neck of the woods – can also be made from pallets, and it’s not as complex as you might think. In fact, simply stacking a few pallets horizontally, then attaching a vertically oriented pallet to the back for a backrest, can be enough to form the basis of a pallet couch. This may sound odd, but, as you can see below, it actually looks pretty cool. All you need to do is add cushions, paint to your liking, and lounge the day away.
