Project Idea: Creating Furniture using Wooden Shipping Pallets

11 Aug

I was cruising down the highway the other day when I saw an old warehouse with towering piles of pallets spilling all over the back of it’s lot. It reminded me of a picture that I had in my design file from many years ago. It was a project where you could turn an old pallet into a great industrial coffee table by painting the pallet, adding a glass top and big casters to the bottom.


I looked and looked but couldn’t find that picture and I don’t think it’s anywhere on the internet. But it did get me thinking about other ideas for projects. What great, inexpensive projects could be made using old wooden pallets!

  • Here’s the closest thing that I could find to that idea:

pallet chairs

  • Or, how about a plate rack?

  • And this one is my favorite — a pallet bed:

You will never look at old pallets the same way again.
Have a Terrific Tuesday!
