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.
