Are you needing some new furniture in your house? Have you just made a big move and am missing some important pieces for your new house? Or are you just looking for a fun weekend project? Whatever your reason, you’ve come to the right place!
Building your own furniture can be an incredibly rewarding experience that you get to relive every time you admire your complete project in use. However, sometimes building your own furniture can be just as expensive as buying it… Well, that’s where pallet wood comes in!
Pallets are used and thrown away all the time but that doesn’t mean the wood is bad! Actually, the wood is great! You can often buy pallets as cheap as 10 bucks or less! Or, if you’re lucky you can find people giving them away for free. Just do your due diligence and make sure the pallet is safe to use.
So start asking around for pallets and let’s get building!
1. L-shaped Sofa
A super easy project that looks stylish and works wonderfully. Decorate your pallet sofa with creamy white comfortable cushions or go for something bolder.
2. Pallet Clock
Don’t lose track of time and waste away your day! Tackle this project and feel proud of your accomplishment.
You can never have too many boxes to store things in your house! So start DIYing your own crates out of old pallets.

A funky loveseat that anyone can make! Just grab some pallets, turn on your creativity button, and start crafting!
