This Pallet Corner Garden Lounge Set was a relatively easy build. If I can make it, trust me, anyone can! It took me longer than the average person, but then that was to be expected as I have Multiple Sclerosis. I had to stop and start to give my body a rest. However, it’s a GREAT project!
How I designed my Pallet Corner Garden Lounge Set:
I used 10 euro pallets as they are a great size if you are using cot mattresses for the padding. Also, I used six cot mattresses which I bought from Facebay as I like and need my comfort. Additionally, I upholstered everything in a fully waterproof material so it can stay out all summer – which means at least a few days as I live in Scotland, ha ha!
First, I started with 10 Euro pallets. I stacked two pallets on top of one another and secured them with screws. To make the full Pallet Corner Garden Lounge Set I repeated this two more times. With the remaining four pallets, I simply trimmed them to the height I wanted, but otherwise left them intact as back rests. Next, I covered the front and sides of the lounge set with 1x4 pine boards for a more finished look. I added more pine boards across the top of the seat backs as well. Then I covered the seats with plywood for even support.
I spent a little more than the typical project, but the vast majority of the expense was for the cot mattresses and upholstery material. However, it was worth it!
Pallet Corner Garden Lounge Set – finishing touches:
I used Cuprinol Garden Shades paint in a bright white, as I thought it would be a terrific backdrop for the blue upholstery material. Plus, the Cuprinol is a good-quality outdoor paint that will help protect my new furniture.
I backlit using LEDs bought from eBay for under £10 so it can be used anytime; not only on light nights. I hope the photos show you the step by step process for this build, and you make your own!
