DIY projects with wooden pallets – 10 ideas easy to carry out
Of all the items that we have around us and that we want to repurpose in our household, wooden pallets are probably the easiest platforms for such projects. With a touch of imagination and a little effort, this piece of wood with an often repulsive aspect can gain an important role in your home, as we will see below, in this article in which we present DIY projects with wooden pallets.
First of all, several pallets can easily take the form of a bed, as seen in the image below. Matching the wooden floor, the bed thus created gives a rustic touch to your room and it will surely be a reason your friends will envy you for.
Not just the bed can be crafted out of wood pallets. You can easily make a desk from the same object, that should by all means be varnished, and the contrast it creates in your working corner is particularly interesting, especially if the rest of the furniture is lightly colored, as we see in the image below.
A roller table or an ottoman, whether it is for coffee or for other purposes, can be as easily made from an old pallet or more, depending on the desired size. It can easily serve as books shelves as well and thus you kill two birds with one stone.
As we showed in another article, an n wooden pallet can become a holder or display for flower pots, exposed in a corner of the terrace of your house. It can be painted in different colors to match either the flowers or the back wall.
Examples of DIY projects with wooden pallets go further, this time with shelves built from this material. Similar with the bed or desk, they give an air of vintage and originality to the room where they are hung.
Moreover, several pallets may take the form of a wooden cabinet with ingenious form that you definitely need in your room.
The ideas go on and if so far we spoke of storage spaces, let’s now talk about… hanging spaces. A coat rack in the hallway, with each plank painted different, is definitely going to catch the eye of the person entering your home.
For those with ambitious ideas when it comes to DIY projects with wooden pallets, a wall completely covered in planks is of great visual effect and will become the main focal point of the room.
You can make a wooden pallet make up vanity for your girlfriend or wife’s birthday, hang a mirror and the surprise is guaranteed. The vintage air of this unique piece of furniture and the lit candles create a romantic atmosphere.
Last but not least in terms of DIY projects with wooden pallets – a bench that you definitely need, especially for those living in houses (the opening picture). Every time you sit on it and relax, your thoughts will fly to other DIY projects.
