Repurposed Pallets

|

I love the idea of repurposed pallets into furniture or art.  When I first thought of doing my own project, I would drive around town looking near the dumpsters of commercial and retail buildings.  The last time I went to Home Depot, I asked if I could buy them and they said depending on the type, they ran from $15 to $60 a piece. Well, it really goes without saying that I’m too cheap for that so I kept on with my search.

Utilizing my resources, I called one of my best friends who works for a high end appliance manufacturer.  Low and behold! She texts me right away with a picture and says, “Here is what we are about to throw away. Do you want any of these?” My answer? “On my way.” So my little one and I hopped in the car. To this destination… aka… free pallet heaven.

Thanks to my friend who, by the way was in heels, I was able to jam two and a half in the back of my car. Now… what to do with them? A few days later they are still sitting in my garage awaiting my attention.  In the meantime I searched for some inspiration.  Here are some amazing ideas I found, but for now I’m still undecided.

    1. I was actually surpirsed when I did research for this post at how many people thought to use pallets. My brother mentioned that they did a makeover pallet contest on Ready Made magazine.

  1. I just found your site and am loving it! Just so happens my husband has a pile of these pallets making my hedgerow look horrible! Looks like I just found a solution to my problem! I love the hanging as a piece of art, I have a wall over a sofa that needs something…

  2. I was wondering if you had a diagram or directions for putting together the Pallet Entertainment Center? I love that piece and want to do it for our family room.
