I made these Children’s Pallet Picnic Tables to be 44″ long and 48″ wide from the outside of the seats. They stand 24″ off the ground with the seats 12″ from the ground. The table top, seats and the braces are made from recycled pallets. I used 3″ carriage bolts and 2 1/2″ wood screws.

Children’s Pallet Picnic Tables create fun play spaces and handy overflow seating for family gatherings! Make your own today!

Make a picnic table that’ll make your kids squeal with delight! There’s nothing better to a child than having furniture sized just for them. It creates a bit of magic and inspiration. Plus, have them help you with the build – with staining or painting, or even sanding. Just be sure to supervise your little ones. We want to see another generation of Pallet Crafters! If you make your own design, please submit it!


Looking good in a dark stain! The carriage bolts look great against the dark color. These Children’s Pallet Picnic Tables will get the kids outdoors in no time!

Leave it natural, or add a subtle stain to highlight that gorgeous wood! This one upcycles more than one type of wood, but that’s the beauty of DIY – use what you have!

If you want to have some more fun, have the kids paint their own custom designs. Then, seal it to protect their artwork or years to come! Although there are no drawings or cut list for this project, we’ve found you a similar idea for DIY Children’s Pallet Benches at a great blog site called DIY Needles and Nails. They provide a handy set of plans that will explain how to build it. Adapt the measurements to your children’s needs. Now that you’ve made a bench, how about a Kid’s Playhouse? Get them to turn the electronics OFF and enjoy the outdoors more with these creative ideas!

We made this Southern Good Ole’ Boy’s Pallet Bar using a 12′ x 4′ pallet. Half was used for a separate fence project. We built the L-shaped bar on the deck and liked it so much we kept it there.

Whether or not you’re a Southerner, this Good Ole’ Boy’s Pallet Bar has great ideas that you could use on your own pallet bar project!

I made the frame partially from upcycled fencing, but the remainder is pallet wood. We had some fun with the decorative edges – we found some nice-looking branches, smoothed them out and removed the bark, then split them in half lengthwise. Then we used those as the bar edging. We added stencils, pyrography, and even did some easy metal work with the corrugated tin backdrop.

The beauty is in the details: This Good Ole’ Boy’s Pallet Bar has so many things going on that you can use in your own project. There is some gorgeous live-edge work, stenciling, pyrography, metal work, painting, and very creative use of upcycled materials. Don’t be fooled by the name of this project.
Look what old fence posts and pallet wood can become with the help of a couple of pieces of corrugated tin! This is a bar guaranteed to have family & friends ask to have gatherings at YOUR place!
It’s all coming together. What a fun idea for a bar!
Have fun with stencils, or just free-hand paint your designs…or have the kids help with this part!

Great job on your pallet bar! Now you need some Excellent Bar Stools! Here’s a fun way to light your bar in style with these Fire Extinguisher Lights!

Made this bookcase from virtually all recycled wood and at a cost of less than $20.

Read Sturdy, Stylish Pallet Wood Bookcase by bluegrassfan76 on 1001 Pallets!

I made this Pallet Wood Bookcase partially because the large cabinet factory that I work at made some changes. They decided to discontinue selling quarter-sawn oak cabinets and were going to throw out the 3/8″ thick panels that were used for door panels. I brought a pallet of them home and used those for the back.

Combine upcycled materials to create a gorgeous heirloom piece like this Pallet Wood Bookcase!

I made this Pallet Wood Bookcase that measures 40″ x 12″ x 72″ from pallet wood, four 1X4″ boards that I purchased, and some quarter-sawn oak panels that were going to be thrown away. I used the four 1x4s for the four main six-foot tall support legs. The shelf supports, as well as the shelves and the sides, are all pallet deck boards. I fastened the frame and shelves with 2″ and 2 1/2″ wood screws while using wood glue and 1 1/4″ trim nails to attach the deck boards on the side and to the shelf supports. After sanding I stained with dark walnut stain and then finished with one coat of satin polyurethane.

The structure is simple and straight forward! This is a great shot of how to build your own – to any size you want!
Each step just strengthens the build. You can plane the wood for a refined, elegant look, or just sand down enough to prevent splinters and rough edges. It’s all up to you!

Clad it with rustic or finished boards to create the exact look you want for your home decor.
One side is finished. I mixed sizes, tones and grains for interest!

This is stunning already – but imagine if you went one step further and created doors to create a hutch? The possibilities are endless when you start with a good design!
Don’t pay outrageous prices for pressboard junk! Make something beautiful like this Pallet Wood Bookcase and have a piece that will last a lifetime!

What a great way to upcycle wood and create storage. Now reward yourself with this easy Underlit Wine Rack! Here’s another way to upcycle products and create a lot of storage, easily – these Bottle Drawers! You have to see them!

I made this set of Pallet Barn Shelves out of necessity. The shelves measure: 48″ H x 40″ W x 36″ D. I made this shelving unit from upcycled barn wood from my property and random pallets. It took three pallets to create and three pieces of lumber from the fences.

Make yourself a set of these Easy DIY Pallet Barn Shelves to organize your garage, shed, workshop, outdoor spaces or add to your rustic indoor decor!

First, cut several pieces of lumber to the length you choose. I cut the lumber to 48″ tall and used three boards to make this as deep as I needed (dimensions listed above). I placed three boards on the ground, good side facing out, and attached them together towards the bottom, and at three other locations to create shelving brackets as well. Next, I repeated it for the other side of the shelving frame. I stood both sides up and attached them together, starting with the bottom shelves that I made from pallet wood. I continued to create shelves all the way up and topped the shelving unit off with three more boards that were the entire width, screwing them into the vertical pieces for extra support.

Rustic can be easy with these DIY Pallet Barn Shelves!



These DIY Pallet Barn Shelves are easy to make. Cut several pieces of wood to the same length for your side pieces (I used three on each side). Next, attach them together with the shelving supports! A great way to upcycle attractive, rustic barn wood like this, or pallet wood (as used on the shelves themselves).


These DIY shelves would be a great addition to any rustic indoor decor, as well as for man caves, garden sheds, barns, or garages too.


Make these shelves to get organized on a budget, and still have good-looking shelving that’ll last a long time!


I made this shelving unit is sturdy enough to hold up a beer, and is also furry-friend approved! This shelving unit can be built quickly and will last a long time.


The shelves are in use. I ended up adding a small side shelf to hold the battery charger and spare batteries for my power tools. Then I just used more pallet wood and attached them to a pair of shelving brackets. I added a large hook to hold extension cords and then filled it up. You can see it can hold a lot of weight.

I needed a cabinet to hold all my stain, lacquer, brushes, bench cookies, rags and cup containers. I wanted them all in one location and easily accessible. So, I built this Recycled Wood Finishing Station. Additionally, I used a recycled plastic lid for the cup dispenser diaphragm.

Editor’s note: Although this is NOT a pallet-based project, we felt it was worthy of sharing because many crafters do use many types of finishes and supplies, and this would be an easy way to organize your work area – to make more excellent pallet crafts, of course!

Check out my DIY Video Tutorial and make your own Recycled Wood Finishing Station

Get your woodworking areas organized, and have everything easily visible and at hand. You could also enclose it if you prefer to have a cabinet look. However, I wanted to have everything visible and avoid putting stain-covered hands on cabinet pulls. When things are neat and organized, I don’t mind seeing them and having them easily accessible if I need another brush, cup, or paint puck.

Recycled Wood Finishing Station - this handy cabinet is made from upcycled wood, and it has places for various sizes of stain cans, paint pucks, paint brushes, and even a cup dispenser and rag dispenser. A great addition to your workshop or man cave!

Recycled Wood Finishing Station - you know you did well on a project when your kids give you the thumbs up. Nicely done, Dark_Horse_Woodworking!

DIY Video Tutorial: Spoon Hook Pallet Cup Holder – Custom make your own home decor or home accessories!

This project can even upcycle mismatched silverware, or it could be a fun way to reuse old baby spoons. You need one scrap piece of pallet wood of any wood type. A belt sander makes quick work of rounding over the corners, but you can cut and hand sand too (or shape it any way you want). Print out a mirror-image of whatever word you want, and you can also use other images and photographs. See our post on how to do wood transfers if you need additional information. You can stain the board as light or dark as you want, but keep in mind that you’ll want to see your lettering. We opted to sand the board smooth, but not so smooth that the milling cuts were gone to keep that visual interest! Additionally, you can brush on your sealers if you don’t have a spray gun.



A beautiful addition to your kitchen home decor, or a gift that would surely be appreciated!

Here’s how to do photo transfers with clear polyurethane!

Our little boy was getting too big for his cot. We took the DIY pallet project option and built this Transitional Children’s Pallet Bed. As anyone with children knows, beds designed for toddlers are very overpriced so the DIY pallet bed option was a budget-friendly and ultimately fun choice.

We built this Transitional Children’s Pallet Bed on wheels for easy rearrangement and cleaning!

We found three pallets that we ended up using for this DIY pallet bed project. Once we had a mattress size (160x70cm) we could build the bed around it. We still needed something to stop our little one from rolling out, which was why we needed 2.5 pallets. Otherwise, we would’ve only needed two pallets to create the headboard, footboard, and frame.  First, we cut the ends off to form the base. The off-cuts were used to make the headboard and the third pallet was used to make the footboard and side pieces. Once it was assembled, we applied chalk paint and waxed over it. Finally, we added locking casters, and our son is very happy!









While you’re at it, add a great Pallet Desk Idea to your kid’s room! Here are other great Upcycled Furniture Ideas that you may want to implement in your kid’s room.

I made this Tall Rolling Pallet Coffee Table in only three hours with two pallets. I highlighted some of the unique imperfections with a light application of paint that I rubbed in and then sanded the excess off. Add some casters, and you have a mobile host or hostess station for parties or to clear a dancing area!

This Tall Rolling Pallet Coffee Table is an easy DIY pallet project and would make a great coffee table or even work surface for your recycled pallet ideas.

First, I found two pallets and removed some of the bottom deck boards. Next, I lightly sanded to remove the splinters and rough edges. I used a rag to lightly rub in a dark-colored paint into the grooves and recesses of the wood and wiped the excess off. When dry, I sanded the excess paint off, and it left the defects highlighted like expensive, exotic woods. I attached some scrap heavy-duty pallet stringers as the support legs. Next, I added more deck boards to brace three heavy legs on the four corners. Finally, I installed four locking casters and applied several coats of a satin finish varnish to seal.

Use paint to highlight the stunning imperfections that make pallet wood an amazing media for your DIY Pallet Projects!

Build a stunning Pallet Sectional Sofa and host those family gatherings! Add a beautiful Pallet Side Chair to complete your living room!

I had seen many ideas and projects from pallet wood; I decided to give it a go and ten pallet coffee tables later I am hooked!!

I made this Blended-Media Pallet Coffee Table using pallet wood and purchased table legs from a large furniture chain. This was my first attempt using reclaimed pallet wood to make a coffee table on IKEA shelf brackets (as legs).

Don’t be afraid to mix new and old, like this Blended-Media Pallet Coffee Table to create a modern and unique home decor look. 

First, I broke down a single pallet. Next, I sanded the boards to remove splinters and rough edges. Then, I began applying a clear coat, using a selection of fine sandpapers between coats to protect that rustic finish. The wood has loads of character; a real bonus when creating something that is to take place in your living room as a focal point. Care was taken in the process to make sure as much of the wood patina was salvaged as possible, which shows through beautifully with the layers of clear coat. I used four deck boards to create a frame that I attached to the Ikea shelf brackets to create a mid-century modern look. The measurements of this table are 19″ wide x 38″ long x 18.5″ tall.

Combine store-bought table legs or brackets to create a modern feel on a shoestring budget. This table would be gorgeous in your living room or your outdoor living spaces! An excellent DIY Pallet Project for sure!

Here are other home decor ideas like these great Pallet Frames.

Pallet Wood Battle-torn Flag https://www.1001pallets.com/2017/06/pallet-wood-battle-torn-flag/ https://www.1001pallets.com/2017/06/pallet-wood-battle-torn-flag/#comments Tue, 13 Jun 2017 19:00:59 +0000 https://www.1001pallets.com/?p=37611

This is a battle-torn flag made from pallet wood.

I made this Pallet Wood Battle-torn Flag out of some scrap pallet wood deck boards. It features the natural split ends of some damaged pallet slats to simulate a tattered, battle-torn flag!

Use pallet scraps and damaged deck boards and make your own Pallet Wood Battle-Torn Flag!

This is a fun project to make, and uses those generally “unusable” boards with splits and broken ends. It highlights the rugged beauty of the damaged boards instead of just sending the boards to the landfill!  You can cut stars out of more scraps or purchase them from a hobby or craft center instead if you choose. I made this flag using six splintered boards. First, I very lightly sanded them, and trimmed up the edges of each board to make the width consistent and to provide for a tight fit. I attached them to a thin frame I built after fitting the edges tightly. You may need to gently hand-plane or sand the boards to fix any imperfections, or you can use fillers. I trimmed up the three sides with the table saw.

Use paint, stain, or a combination to obtain the level of color you want for your Pallet Wood Battle-Torn Flag!

Next, I stained the boards and after the stain was dry, I masked off the rows for the whitewash and blue fields. I applied the white and blue paints and allowed them to dry. In the meantime, I painted the stars white. When everything was dry, I glued the stars in place and then added a picture hanger onto the back of this piece.

An amazing, patriotic DIY pallet project.

When have damaged pallet boards ever looked more beautiful? This would be a beautiful project for your patriotic holiday party decor, or just a gift for your favorite veteran or their family!

Make a set of Camo Party Chairs to go with this beautiful creation for your indoor or outdoor party decor! You can really show your patriotism with these Pallet Adirondack Chairs too!

I made this Rustic Designed Pocket Hole Pallet Bar Stool was made from 100% heat-treated (HT) pallet wood. We featured, instead of hiding, the pocket holes as we thought they added a nice effect.

Make yourself a Pocket Hole Pallet Bar Stool (or more) for indoor or outdoor use. They would be great for impromptu parties!

Overall measurements: This chair measures 19″ wide x 18″ deep. The seat height is 28″, and the height at the top of the seat back is 43.5″. We used pocket-hole screws for a sturdy build. We originally decided to face the pocket holes outward so that we could tighten the joints up as needed, but decided that it looked pretty cool. We ended up loving the way the pocket holes added to the design decor, so we left it as-is!

Add a great Garden Bar and invite the family over! If you don’t have time to make a bar, buy a Pallet Bar here!

I have always wanted a home cinema, and we recently moved to a new house one room stood out as a possible candidate. A lot of people said it was too small but I went ahead and did it anyway, and we love it.

Turn those unused areas of your home into an amazing Pallet Home Theater! We knew we wanted a home cinema room and in the new house, there was one room in the basement that seemed perfect! It only had two small windows, so it was already quite dark. The only problem was that it is a little room. Most of the home cinema forums said it was too small, but we decided to build it regardless!

Make the ultimate Man Cave, Woman Cave, or Family Cave with this Awesome Pallet Home Theater!

I knew from the beginning that I would use pallets top make the risers for the seating. I couldn’t start my project until I found 14 matching pallets. First, we applied foam to the bases of all the pallets to reduce the noise. Next, we positioned the pallets and screwed them together. We added another layer of foam on top and covered it all with some OBD boards. We screwed the OSB boards down to make the riser sturdy. I packed the insides of the riser with old towels, cardboard, foam, etc., to prevent the riser becoming a big echo chamber. It was finished off with the thickest carpet underlay I could find and the thickest carpet I could find on eBay. I installed some LED deck lights along the step before securing the carpet down. This gave the room that cinema feels.

Can a wall be a screen? Yes… or you can mount a drop-down or pull-down screen in your Pallet Home Theater

With the riser done we painted the walls and the ceiling a soft dark charcoal color to reduce ambient light. This will make the screen image look better. I made some plywood window covers that are attached with hook-and-loop strips. This allows the window covers to be removed easily for cleaning or emergencies.  The single biggest expense was the seating. We initially expected only to be able to fit four seats, but we found some thinner chairs on Amazon. They were small enough that we could add a 5th seat! The seats are amazing! These power recliners also have a built-in massage and heated backrests. The best feature is the zero-clearance head rests/backrests.

Compromise can be the inspiration for cool, custom Home Decor ideas in your Pallet Home Theater

Because the chairs were narrower, they didn’t have cup holders. So, I made individual tables to go between each chair. Each table is on a single leg which I cut in the middle, inserted a dowel and then put the top back on. This the tables to be swiveled or removed when not needed. The table top was made using mini wooden trays. I positioned each one off-center so when rotated they can be positioned in different formats. To finish the tables off, I designed a logo, printed in reverse on kitchen freezer paper, placed the wet side on the table area and rubbed.

It’s great to mix and match – or repurpose to get that perfect Pallet home Theater

Six black Ikea units along the front fitted perfectly and looked great. Some curtains along the side created a nice little foyer area in which I used an old electronic photo frame to act as an electronic coming soon poster. I added LED light strips back behind the chairs and under the front cupboards. Individual-led lights are between each chair, and all are linked via Bluetooth to my Android tablet, so I have complete control of the lighting. A few accessories and the electronic connectors and we are good to go. In all honesty, the room really could not have turned out better, and we love sitting in there with friends watching movies.

This Stacked Pallet Coffee Table is simple and very useful. I made this cheery coffee table using four pallets that I stacked on top of one another. Then, I used only acrylic hobby paints to color it. I only used heat-treated pallets.

Make your own easy, color-coordinated Stacked Pallet Coffee Table for indoors or outdoor use!

Make your own furniture that even the kids can have some fun helping you create. Imagine your own version of this coffee table, but with your children’s artwork immortalized on top. It would be an amazing gift for the grandparents, too. First, find four HEAT-TREATED pallets, and clean them well. Sand down any rough edges. You may want to remove the lower deck boards, if present, to lighten the table. Be sure to leave the two outer rails intact at a minimum. You can paint your pallets before assembly or after. If using the coffee table outdoors, it is advisable to paint BEFORE assembly to fully encapsulate the wood. Stack the pallets on top of one another, and attach together using screws. For ease of mobility, add a set of locking casters. Now you have instant remote-control storage, a magazine rack and DVD storage all in one!

Hiding trash… with trash? You’d never guess that this Pallet Trash Bin Shed is made with recycled pallet wood when you see the finished project. Hide the unsightly trash and recycle bins with a style that will make your neighbors envious!

This Pallet Trash Bin Shed could double as a garden shed too!

I made this pallet trash bin shed entirely from Euro Pallets and a few upcycled beams. I planed the wood and applied three layers of protective varnish for years of reliable service. The only things I had to buy were the varnish and the hardware.

Réalisée uniquement à base de palettes Europe (Euro-Pallets) récupérées gracieusement et des poutres de récupération également. Achats réalisés pour la quincaillerie et le vernis de protection (3 couches) Idem pour les bacs à fleurs à côtés!!


With the sides and center divider assembled, we added the top boards that we cut at an angle to create a slope. The lid is framed out, and I did the doors and top in a diagonal pattern for a bit more visual interest. This pallet Trash Bin will be beautiful!


This sturdy pallet trash bin shed should keep out the pesky critters. You may want to add locks on the top and front doors, though.

This is a great pallet project that most people could accomplish!

We installed the top and clamped the doors in place. I used some shims to keep the doors at the right height and to allow for clearance over gravel.


Close-up of the latch mechanism we created. I used this latch style because it is reliable and easy.

Here is the final project – my pallet trash bin shed in place, with three coats of varnish. It looks great, and it will not be long before the neighbors have bin envy.

Trash cans are no longer an eyesore.

Now all you need is a great Pallet Washing Station to clean up when working on those outdoor projects! Have you ever had a Live Succulent Keychain? Now you can.

I made this Pallet Arched Plant Stand from a single pallet. This is a simple project that would look good in your front yard or back yard. Leave it natural to weather or paint it the way you want. Additionally, add a shelf to the bottom to hold more plants!

This Pallet Arched Plant Stand could be a decorative feature of your garden or outdoor areas!

First, I picked a nice-looking pallet. Next, I removed the center set of stringers on the back side of the pallet and any remaining slats. I used a jigsaw to cut the opening.  I used leftover pallet deck boards to create the feet, and it keeps this plant stand very stable. You can hang plants by simply using a couple of S-hooks, or install cup hooks or other plant hangers. The good thing is, just an elliptical cut out with a jigsaw, and some paint, and that’s it. You can build this project in one day!  The hanging ball of succulents takes a bit longer, two hanging baskets, one upside down to the other, with succulents inserted. Put some tube into the top, to get the water into the middle. The bottom succulent is a ground cover “Sedum.”



This is a great idea to add some greenery to your patio, terrace, or front porch too!

If you only have a little space, make a Little Vertical Garden! Since you’re out in the garden, how about some great Garden Tool Organization ideas?

I made this Pallet Wood TV Cabinet as one of my first orders when launching my own small business! First, I started making furniture for friends and family, and word got out. :) I had to be precise on this build. This TV stand measures 45cm tall by 45cm wide, by 1.64m long. It has a large shelf in the middle and three equal drawers. I made the entire project using pallet wood and other upcycled wood.

Make your own Pallet Wood TV Cabinet – and it could double as a sideboard or buffet too!

Here I used pallets of 2.5m x 1.5m along with some upcycled rafters. I used the rafters to create the frame. I used pallet wood for the exterior cladding. Also, I upcycled some old paneling from an old staircase renovation and used that to create the drawer frames. I faced the drawers with more pallet wood. The finishes are black paint for the feet and a gray tinted stain for the rest of the furniture. Installation of the structure was done with glue and with “pockets holes.” The exteriors are laminated/glued, and the drawers are screwed. The hardest thing here is to be accurate over relatively large distances. The assembly is not technical in itself but took a long time.

Editor’s note: There is a DIY Video Tutorial at the end of this post – it is in French, but it’s easy to follow! Happy Palleting!

Ce meuble ci a une histoire un peu différente de d’habitude, il n’a pas été fait pour la famille ou des amis mais c’est en fait une de mes premières commandes lors du lancement de mon activité professionnelle. La commande était précise, une meuble tv de 45 cm de haut sur 45 cm de large sur 1m64 de long avec une grande tablette au milieu et trois tiroirs égaux. Le tout en bois de palettes.

Ici j’ai utilisé des palettes de 2m50 sur 1m50 composée en partie de chevrons. ces derniers ont été utilisés pour créer la structure. Les planches ont servies pour les tabliers. et les tiroirs ont été faits avec les chutes des tabliers et du vieux lambris démontés quelques mois au paravant dans une cage d’escalier. Les finitions sont : de la peinture noire pour les pieds et une Lasure teintée grise pour le reste du meuble. Le montage de la structure a été effectué a la colle et avec des « pockets holes », les tabliers sont du lamelé/collé et les tiroirs sont vissés. Le plus dur ici est de réussir a être précis sur des distances relativement grande. Le montage n’est pas technique en soit mais a pris beaucoup de temps.



I left the original nail holes for that rustic feel but took the time to plane the surfaces for a good fit. I glued and screwed everything together with a pocket hole jig set. This Pallet Wood TV Cabinet could also be a beautiful sideboard or buffet!


Rustic can be elegant! This Pallet Wood TV Cabinet would also be great in a Man Cave, or even used as additional storage in a kid’s room too!


I used different tones to highlight the natural beauty of the wood against the frames.This Pallet Wood TV Cabinet is made from all upcycled materials, including paneling, and rafter boards!

Here’s a great idea for some Pallet Tables to go with this project! Thanks for sharing this post! Now, how about a little Pallet Coffee?

Check out the most popular creations made by you and selected by you – the Top 5 DIY Pallet Projects May 2017

#1: Nothing beats a beautiful outdoor living space for parties. But you can’t do that without a terrific Pallet Bar!


Can you say Man Cave or AMAZING party bar? This beautiful bar will surely get you excited for summer and those lazy weekend nights hanging out with family and good friends. Just be sure to have those beverages icy cold!

#2: Summer is coming, and let’s keep on making those outdoor living spaces better! Make yourself a comfy place to relax like with this attractive Storefront Decorative-Backed Pallet Bench!


Rustic can be INTERESTING! This beautifully-crafted bench had a lot of thought put into it. The distinctive characteristics of pallets are featured and integrated into the design without making it boring. The uneven seat back makes you want to run your fingers along the edges and draws attention to the gorgeous imperfections and textures of the pallet wood. Grab a cool beverage and have a seat!

#3: DIY Pallet Projects May 2017: If you’re making outdoor seating, how about this Sleek, Modern Lounge Set for those family gatherings?

Time to send out those invites and get your BBQ supplies!

Converting wood pallets to shelves, planter boxes, benches, bed frames, and other home décor is a fun, trendy, and inexpensive way to add style to one’s home or business. Did you also know that recycling wood pallet is also good for the environment? Here are two ways recycling wood pallets helps the environment:

Landfill Avoidance

In the United States, its estimated that there are more than 4 billion pallets in circulation. According to the study Pallet Re-Use and Recycling Saves High-Value Material from Landfills, it’s estimated that 51 million pallets were recovered from landfills, however, recent data suggests that number has grown by 700%! More and more wood pallets are recovered from landfills because wood pallets are recyclable.

According to the same study, in 2006 it was estimated that pallet reuse and recycling saved about 5.7 billion board feet of lumber. This is because wood pallets that have reached the end of their life cycle are 100% recyclable. There’s absolutely no good reason why wood pallets should be thrown away in landfills. Within the wood pallet industry, they can be dismantled and the boards will be reused to repair other wood pallets. In other wholesale applications, the wood can be ground to make things like garden mulch or animal bedding for farms. And for the crafty DIY community, the uses for wood pallets in home décor are endless!

Wood Pallets Store Carbon

Excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere depletes the ozone layer and impacts global temperatures. Young, fast growing trees pull carbon from the air during photosynthesis, store the carbon within their trunks and branches, and release oxygen back into the atmosphere. The carbon continues to be stored in wood products until it either burns or naturally decomposes. The chemical composition of wood products is about 50% carbon so recycling wood products prevent carbon from being re-released into the atmosphere!

To learn more about wood pallets and the carbon cycle, watch this 2 minute YouTube video:

North American Forests Are Sustainable

According to the IPCC’s Summary for Policymakers, it’s estimated that rainforest deforestation in developing countries is responsible for approximately 11 percent of global carbon emissions. However, North American forests are continuously pulling carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and storing it in solid wood. Because these forests are growing more than they are harvested, the U.S. Forest Service estimates that U.S. forests currently serve as a carbon ‘sink’, offsetting approximately 13% of U.S. emissions from burning fossil fuels.

Voluntary third-party forest certification began in the 1990s in response to market concerns about forest management and illegal logging, primarily in developing countries. Two commonly used forest certification programs in North America include the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Programs like these are designed to assure consumers that the wood products they purchase have been produced sustainably. They are also assured that these forests are doing their part to offset fossil fuel carbon emissions. Visit this site for more information on these programs.

About Nature’s Packaging

Nature’s Packaging is a marketing initiative sponsored by the Canadian Wood Pallet & Container Association, the National Wood Pallet & Container Association, and the Western Pallet Association. Their goal is to demonstrate wood pallet sustainability through research and science. To contact Nature’s Packaging please visit their website.

I acquired some offcuts which were destined to be used as firewood, but, you know, pallet wood called to me.

Use scrap pallet wood (or scrap “regular” wood) to beautify a building exterior. We made this Pallet Wood Shed Front and had fun with a “crazy-quilt” pattern! I was given a large amount of mismatched scrap wood pieces. The scraps were leftovers from a fencing project they had done. All I needed was a jigsaw and a drill, along with some screws, nails and stain to complete this project.

Don’t throw away those pallet scraps – use them to decorate an exterior facade like this Pallet Wood Shed Front!

I had built a shed from plywood, pending demolition of old asbestos shed, but it looked so dull. These leftovers were the perfect medium for a mosaic style makeover. There is no pattern or design. I had fun and simply made each piece fit into the gap that appeared in front of me. This would be a cool project to involve the family with, too. I sanded and stained the wood to finish it off.


Don’t forget your furry friends – use pallet scraps to make a Pallet Pet Bed!  If you don’t have the pallets, you can find some great ideas for other Upcycled Pet Beds.

"Hands Across the Sea" Souvenir Tote Made from Pallet Boards, Branch, Printable and Tiny Sea Shells.... It's not as Difficult as it Looks!

Read Painted Branch-handle Pallet Tote Crate With Decoupage Accents by kelly on 1001 Pallets!

]]>

Our Painted Branch-handle Pallet Tote Crate With Decoupage Accents make a great functional conversation piece for indoors or outdoors. You can make a version of one yourself, or you can check out our Etsy site and pick one up for that special friend (or yourself).

Here’s how you can make your own Painted Branch-handle Pallet Tote Crate With Decoupage Accents:

First, dry brush your boards with your favorite color paint. If you dry brush lightly and go slowly, you can skip the “distressing” and save yourself all that sanding…and sanding…and sanding. Besides, all that sanding can kill the rustic look of the wood, and that’s what we love right?

We always “age” our boards outside in a sunny spot for quite some time before cleaning and using them. I personally love the ones that turn to those silver-gray tones.

A Pallet Tote Crate can be used for silverware, picnic supplies, outdoor parties, and more!

My husband builds the boxes. How you decide to put yours together is up to you – make it to any shape or size you need. Add lots of dividers, or only a few! We love using tree branches for the handles. Then we stripped the bark off of the branch by sanding it off. We use screws and Gorilla brand wood and construction glues. Sometimes we leave the nail heads in the pallets, but other times we cut them flush with the surface. Once you get your paint the way you want, get your printer ready!

Add your own custom images to your Pallet Tote Crate:

Print your favorite label or picture. I prefer to print on a lightweight card stock. I got my image from The Graphics Fairy (my personal FAVE place to go for vintage style printables). Once you have your print, begin tearing the edges around the images. This aids in adding a vintage, distressed look to the final product. It is okay to tear into the image a little bit. You will see white edges around the sides, but the final steps will take care of that. You can also (CAREFULLY) burn the edges of the paper if you prefer that look…here comes one of those idiotic disclaimer statements….I’m not responsible for you burning down your house or any personal injury!

How do I attach those cool custom images to my Pallet Tote Crate:

I prefer using the Matte finish Mod Podge glue. Follow the manufacturer’s directions. Brush some Mod Podge onto your wood first, and then to the BACK of your image. Place your image down and gently smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles working from the center out. Don’t overdo this step or you will see the ink start to change the color of your glue. Have a slightly damn cloth ready to wipe away excess glue. Rub the edges down really well and let it dry a couple of hours (the more distressed the edges are, the better).

Distressing your decoupage shouldn’t stress you out, and you’ll make a great custom Pallet Tote Crate!

Try not to let the glue cover or dry around the edges because for this next step it’s important that they can absorb the stain you will wipe over the surface. How much stain and what color you use are totally your preference. On mine, I used a water based stain in a sort of gray-brown color. I used Saman brand in color Iron Earth. I just use a cloth (cut up old t-shirts work great), put a little stain on the cloth and rub it over the entire project. Remember those white edges around the print you applied? Well, now they will look dirty and distressed just as we wanted! Now let it dry over night.

Finishing your Pallet Tote Crate:

The next day gives it an overcoat of the same Mod Podge. If you use the Matte finish then you don’t have to worry about covering the entire surface so that it has the same sheen as the rest of the project (see there is a method to my madness! Work smarter not harder!) If you do want a sheen I love working with Minwax Polycrylic in satin. I try to work with only water-based products when possible. Now you’re ready to glue on little decorations and baubles of your choice. We attached tiny sea shells to our project. I got mine at Micheal’s craft store, and they came already colored in bags.

Diy Video Tutorial: Homemade Lacquer Saves Money https://www.1001pallets.com/2017/06/diy-video-tutorial-homemade-lacquer-saves-money/ https://www.1001pallets.com/2017/06/diy-video-tutorial-homemade-lacquer-saves-money/#respond Tue, 06 Jun 2017 19:11:57 +0000 https://www.1001pallets.com/?p=37027

Simple homemade lacquer

Read Diy Video Tutorial: Homemade Lacquer Saves Money by Neokentin on 1001 Pallets!

]]>

Editor’s note: the administration at 1001pallets.com does not endorse or make any safety statements regarding this  Homemade Lacquer video.

ATTEMPT THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Please do your own research, watch videos and read about this before you attempt!

A simple way to make Homemade Lacquer that actually works from two common ingredientsAll you need is two simple ingredients: polystyrene foam (like the packing styrofoam that surrounds electronics in the box), and common thinner – all-purpose thinner/lacquer thinner.

How I tried to make my own Homemade Lacquer:

I like to make things if I can so, after making my own wood stain (vinegaroon) and both beeswax polish and filler, I decided to see if I could make lacquer – If there’s a hard way to do something – I’ll generally find it. The number one benefit is that it’s cheap to make but I also like the fact that it means there’s less polystyrene going into landfill and one of the things I wanted for my business is for it to be as low waste as possible. I also like the way it dries quickly and generally matte or very low, low sheen without significantly darkening the wood. I guess if I was making oak tables I would probably use a commercial lacquer but this homemade version works well with pallet wood.

What projects would I use my own Homemade Lacquer:

I only ever use it for indoor projects and I use linseed oil for anything outside, but even then I wouldn’tEVER use it for anything that needs to be ‘food safe‘. I did use the first batch on an outdoor seat about six months ago and it’s still looking good after an unusually hot and wet South Australian summer (SA is on the edge of a desert, so lacquer doesn’t normally last long outside here).

Homemade Lacquer Safety:

Definitely no smoking or naked flames and always outside or somewhere very well ventilated – this stuff is whiffy and malodorous. Having said that, I used to get headaches working with commercial products but I haven’t with a homemade product. You also need to be careful of spills because it will eat other plastics, some glue, and paints.

I can’t tell you about how long you can store it, or if you should let it sit for a while before using.  I tend to make what I need and use it straight away. One of the articles I read on the interweb said to leave it to sit for 24 hours then strain it through a coffee filter. My guess was that they used dirty or dusty styrofoam. I haven’t ever had a problem if the styrofoam is clean, to begin with.

Homemade Lacquer – what it looks like when I make it:

When I make the homemade lacquer, the liquid goes cloudy like hair gel (but nowhere near as thick). If for some reason I don’t use it all, the next day there is a sediment at the bottom of the jar – just like commercial lacquer. This isn’t dirt or dust though, and I have never tried to remove it. In fact, I shake/stir it in and for the same reason, you need to shake/stir commercial lacquer. I’ve only ever tried mixing it with stock standard white polystyrene/styrofoam. I do know that you can’t use the packing pellet kind which dissolves in water (a vegetable byproduct). I’ve never tried. I use all-purpose thinners because that’s what I have at hand and I’ve been pleased with the results. Lacquer thinner would work just as well, if not better.

Homemade Lacquer – Can you use other chemicals?

I’m not sure about acetone and to be honest I probably wouldn’t try it because acetone is more expensive. I have read that you can use acetone and ping pong ball to make lacquer but I haven’t had much luck with it. I’m not a chemist either but I reckon petrol could be potentially disastrous – I’m just thinking that firstly it would smell pretty awful and that it would linger but there might also be oil residue left on the work surface which may remain flammable. I used this lacquer on it and took the photo with a candle burning about a half an hour later – I wouldn’t be game to try that with a lacquer made from gasoline.

I use a mason jar since glass doesn’t deteriorate. DON’T USE A PLASTIC CUP OR JAR – it may melt away!

Don’t forget to check out our page on Workshop Safety! Be sure you handle this homemade mix as FLAMMABLE and label the bottle with a sharpie or other secure method so that no one drinks this accidentally!

I made this Simple Pallet Potting Bench from pallets I get from a local soft-drink distributor. Additionally, sometimes I go out and look for broken pallets. Broken ones are great for bird houses and for use as ornamental wood parts.

When we say Simple Pallet Potting Bench, we mean it: you only need a few tools to make this!

I have just a few tools: 5 1/2″ circular saw, two drills, saws-all, rotating sander with #60 grit, the rest are hand-tools. I use deck screws (no nails) with a predrilled hole —so, wood doesn’t split and not much else. I leave the natural wood and sand tops and front wood to round corners and get rid of splinters, as much as possible without going overboard in my time.

These benches would be great in a garage or man cave too. Here’s an idea for some Pallet Tool Storage. Here’s a DIY video to make a Pallet Chair too!

OK, chairs are ten-a-penny, but I'd like to share my method of giving pallet wood a bit of a fresh look.

Read Standard Pallet Adirondack Chair Made Using Jigsaw! by JamButty on 1001 Pallets!

]]>

I made this Standard Pallet Adirondack Chair using a plan I found on the interweb. I adapted the design because the dimensions for the wood were all machined to fit. But, I only used two pallets and a bit of scrap 2″ by 4″, which I had already, to fit.

How I adapted an internet design to my own Standard Pallet Adirondack Chair:

I made all the cuts using a jigsaw, as I don’t have a rip saw or router. I finished the piece with a hand plane and an electric sander. Obviously, with pallet wood, there was a LOT of sanding! The look au naturel was quite dark, which is nice, but I was aiming for a beachy, sun-bleached, ocean-worn look. I made a wash from white acrylic paint using one part paint to 2 parts water and added a dark color to achieve a pastel shade. Then, I simply painted the wood with a brush and then wiped it off with a rag. This has the effect of lightening the color of the pallet wood, but still letting the natural beauty of the grain and defects to shine! I allowed it to dry for an hour then simply added a coat of clear varnish and the grain jumps out at me.




How about an Adirondack Bench to go with this great chair? Here are some free DIY plans on how to build an Adirondack Chair from home depot.

Here’s the faster, easier way of Dismantling Pallets – just watch the DIY Video Tutorial!

Remove the nails: If nails were sawed, you have to use a nail punch, a hammer, and a clamp to remove them. You’d have to place the nail punch on the cut portion of the nail, then gently tap with a hammer to make it stand out from the other side. Turn your board over and remove the nail with the clamp. Do you think this sounds like a lot of work,  you are right. If so, we have the solution for you! Here is Fastest and Easiest way to break down a pallet.

You don’t have to automatically have “the rustic look” when building with pallets. Look at this Modern Stacked Pallet Patio Set for inspiration. It is elegant, airy, and beautiful, and would look good indoors or out!

This Modern Stacked Pallet Patio Set is a great version of a lounge set and would beautify your terrace, garden area, or even an office!

I made the coffee table using one pallet with boards 2 cm thick. The chairs used around 2-3 pallets each. This project took me close to three days to build overall, but it is well worth it. There was a lot of sanding to make this set look smooth and elegant. A planer would make this job a lot faster.

Pour la table basse j’ai utilisée 1 palette avec des planches de 2 cm d’épaisseurs, pour les chaises 2 à 3 palettes chacune, pour réaliser une chaise a peu prés 1 jour et demi, une bonne journée pour assembler et après un bon ponçage, pour la table la même chose.





Lovely! Now make yourself a fun Pallet Bench Swing to complete your garden lounge area!

Breaking down pallets to recycle the wood creates lots of rusty nails. Might as well recycle them as well.

Here is a fun, fast, and easy pallet project you can do with the kids (always supervised, please). Make Pallet Nail Wall Art by using those old, scrap nails from your other pallet projects!

This adorable Pallet Nail Wall Art could be a great project for the family to join in on!

All you need is a piece of scrap pallet wood, some tacky glue, and a bunch of upcycled pallet nails (or old nails from other projects). Always use caution when crafting with pallet wood/nails. Never leave the kids unsupervised when making pallet crafts, please. Then, let the kids have fun and make gifts for the grandparents! :) Sand the scrap wood to the smoothness you desire. Attach a picture holder to the back, and then start gluing! You can even have fun with craft paints or even a rotary tool. Selectively sand some of the nails after the glue dries and create some shiny spots!

Fun idea! Now we know what to do with all of those leftover nails! Here’s another fun idea – doesn’t everyone need Pallet Robots?

I made this Heirloom Pallet Trunk as a birthday gift. My friend wanted a hope chest or blanket chest at the end of her bed for bedding things. I added a pallet wood heart on the front as a decorative touch.

This Heirloom Pallet Trunk could double as a toy box (with safety hinges), and would look great anywhere!

This trunk was an easy project for me, but it may not be the best for a beginner. First, I formed the frame with 2″ x 4″ pallet stringers. I made a front and back frame, connected the two, and then cut the deck boards to cover the outside. I used glue and screw to attach everything. Make the top with several deck boards that you plane and glue together, or use a piece of finish plywood. I attached the lid using a full-length piano hinge and then added two ropes to prevent the top from slamming open.

This Heirloom Pallet Trunk will be something that the family will love for generations!

Then I added some crown molding trim boards along the bottom, mitering the corners. I did a light sanding to remove splinters, stained the piece, and then applied a varnish to seal. The heart was just a few scrap boards glued together, and then I used a jig saw to cut the shape out.


This pallet chest is a gift that the family will cherish! Now, how about a LED Lit Pallet Bed to go with this cool blanket chest?

This Mobile Pallet Lounge Set is transformable! It can be individual pieces, or rearranged into a large sectional sofa! All you need is to make several loveseats, add locking casters, and you’re mobile. This allows the furniture to be changed up for daily living or parties!

This Mobile Pallet Lounge Set is easy to make, and it has a secret: There is no large sofa!

The Pallet Sofa in this set is large, comfortable and inviting. It is formed by two loveseats that I slid together! That’s the best part of this design; it can be rearranged infinitely to fit your regular living or party gathering needs. To make a loveseat, you’ll need two pallets. One for the seat and one for the seat back. Or, if you have a larger pallet, you can cut it into two pieces, with the seat slightly longer than the seat back. Mount the back onto the seat portion and attach with screws (or use nuts/bolts for an even more secure attachment). Install locking caster wheels to the bottom after sanding and finishing the wood to your liking. With the casters, you won’t have to double pallets to raise the height.

The tables in this Mobile Pallet Lounge Set are also easy to make, and would be beautiful indoors, too!

To make the coffee table, simply stack two pallets on top of one another and attach them together. Add casters to the bottom after sanding and finishing it any way you choose. The side table is a portion of one pallet. Cut one pallet in half lengthwise, and then cut in half across the width. Use leftover scraps of pallet stringers to create the legs to any height you need. Attach them securely and then sand/finish the way you like. If your pallet has extra gaps, fill those with leftover pallet deck boards.




Gorgeous work! Now all you need is a killer Patio Cooler to get the party going!

Today, we had the chance to ask some questions to David Prates who make all kind of originals objects from recycled pallets. If you think you deserve to be featured in the next interview, please, drop us an email.

Tell us a little more about you. Who you are? Where are you from?

My name is David Prates and I’m happily married to my wife Penni. We have a beautiful daughter named Emily who is nearly 6. I grew up in Tennessee and I currently live in Kentucky.

Why do you craft?

Apart from my career of construction project engineering, I love woodworking and have been crafting on and off for about 10 years. It’s a hobby that I love and enjoy thoroughly.

How did you learn to do wood crafts?

I suppose woodworking sparked an interest with me since I naturally like to be creative through design. I picked up the basics by working as a carpenter early on while I attended college.

How long have you been working with pallets?

To be honest, not long. I traditionally always purchased wood via the local hardware store, but I noticed the potential of repurposed wood by way of pallets through YouTube and was intrigued.

Small Pallet Shelf Displays Essential Oils

Why did you choose to work with pallets instead of purchased wood?

It may sound silly, but I think repurposed wood has an organic history and character that just can’t be bought.

What are your can’t-live-without essentials?

Easy, my table saw! Most of the basic shaping of what I do is done with it. (Editor’s note: watch his videos – he knows how to get the most out of his table saw!)

Are there any brands or products you use that are your favorites? Why?

I like Dewalt and Porter Cable products since they are entry level woodworking tools and most are reasonably priced. However, that’s not to say there aren’t many other brands that are equally as good.

Pallet Wood Diffuser Necklace

How would you describe your crafting style?

Probably rustic, if I had to put a label on it.

Are there any crafters/artists/designers that you particularly look up to?

I think having a YouTube channel and sharing with others has opened all kinds of doors to ordinary DIY folks that are very creative and innovative. It’s easy to woodwork when you have all the expensive toys but the real creativity reflects though those who use the limited tools they have and still produce extraordinary things.

Where do you do your wood crafts? How would you describe your workspace?

I just work out of my garage. lol It’s a perfect space for me. I live in a very friendly neighborhood and it’s not uncommon for someone to step inside my garage and ask, “What are you working on?”.

Where do you look for inspiration, or what inspires you for a new wood craft?

Others! The internet with sites like 1001Pallets has loads of people with unlimited potential.

When do you feel the most creative (are you a night owl or a morning person? Or weekend warrior as examples)?

I usually feel most creative in the morning. I get a cup of coffee in me and I’m ready!

Diy Pallet Incense Coffin (Or Burner)

We live in such a mass-produced, “buy-it-now” society. Why should people continue to make things by hand?

There is just something awesome about making it yourself. You can’t buy that feeling. Woodworking is a craft anyone can do and it’s an art that should be cherished.

What is your favorite medium to work in (other than pallets)?

I just love working with wood, any kind of wood. To me it’s almost like clay or metal or any other malleable material. It can be shaped into nearly anything!

What are your tips for people who’d like to start crafting?

Build something you like, not what you think someone else may like. In turn, chances are most people will like the same thing. Use what tools you have. Great things can be made with the most basic of tools. Most importantly, learn from watching others.

What are your most important safety tips when woodworking? Have you ever had any injuries or close calls?

I like my hearing and my sight, so I protect both with PPE.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Buying tools! lol I can never have enough. Ask my wife, as she will attest that you will find me in a hardware store every weekend. If I’m not buying something, I’m at least looking for what I want to buy in the future.

Video Tutorial: Woodburned Pallet American Flag

What are some of your other hobbies or favorite things to do (other than crafting)?

I design and engineer for a career so I love to mess with AutoCAD and other designing programs like Sketchup.

What are some of your best tips for breaking down, prepping, and cleaning pallets before you build with them? Do you have a specific tool you use, or a technique for cleaning the boards/removing nails, etc.?

I have found that a Sawzall works best to cut between the slats and the cross bracing. The nails can be then backed out from the slats with a hammer and a punch.

Have you designed any special tools or jigs for wood crafts?

Really the only jig I use at this point is a table saw sled. It is great for cross cuts and prevents kick back.

What are some wood working skills you really want to learn?

Where to start! Scrolling, laths, inlays, dovetail joints and the list goes on.

What is the one project you’re the proudest of so far?

My daughter, but that is an ongoing project! J  In all seriousness, I would say I am most proud of an old-style gas pump I made entirely of wood, with a lit-up display and light globe at the top. I love to have it on in my garage while I work.

Thanks David for this interview :)

Homemade Pallet Bar Creates Great Outdoor Gathering Space https://www.1001pallets.com/2017/05/homemade-pallet-bar-creates-great-outdoor-gathering-space/ https://www.1001pallets.com/2017/05/homemade-pallet-bar-creates-great-outdoor-gathering-space/#comments Sun, 28 May 2017 11:05:07 +0000 https://www.1001pallets.com/?p=37302

A homemade bar made out of a recycled pallet (U-shaped for transporting garden tables upright), some old tongue and groove flooring for the bar top, reclaimed pallets and boards for all of the interior shelving and fixings, and finally 6 treated boards for the front ( I couldn't face using smaller boards so for simplicity...).

I made this Homemade Pallet Bar with both pallet wood and other reclaimed wood pieces. I also had to buy some wood because I wanted a certain look across the front of the bar.

Make good use of your upcycled wood and pallets – create your own version of a Homemade Pallet Bar!

First, I added some strength to the original pallet that forms the front frame. I simply added some supports on each side to frame out my structure. Next, I proceeded to cover the front using six lengths of treated pine decking. I didn’t want to use smaller reclaimed pieces because I wanted a certain look, and strength of long lengths of wood.

Next, I affixed the interior shelves. Fortunately for me, the structure of the pallet already had supports in place that I could attach my reclaimed boards to. I created a lip on the shelves to stop bottles or glasses falling into the spaces between the shelves. I have four shelves on the right-hand side of the bar, with the left-hand side left open for a bin. Additionally, I left an ample space to allow easy access to the bin or for storage of supplies.

Finally, I fixed the tongue and groove bar top. I finish-sanded everything and applied a coat of varnish to seal. Presto! A perfect piece of garden furniture fit for evening drinks or a family BBQ!




With a great outdoor bar like this, you only need a Pallet Bottle Cap Catcher!

There’s a holiday approaching, so after remembering our fallen military service persons, you may want to have some fun and build one of these great Memorial Day Pallet Project Ideas!

We’ve got lots of Memorial Day Pallet Project Ideas – from easy to challenging!

Here’s a project that you can have the kids help (or complete the vast majority of it as you supervise). Make yourself a Patriotic Pallet Flag / Yard Decoration!


Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve! Put it on a Pallet Flag Yard Decoration instead!

Here’s a great Pallet Adirondack Patio Set that is painted with a patriotic theme!

Of course, you can show your country’s colors AND show the world who your favorite superhero is too…

We’ve got a DIY Video Tutorial for this Patriotic Woodburned Flag!


This isn’t just for a weekend party – this is gorgeous anywhere, anytime! <3

Perhaps you need a place to place that icy cold celebratory beverage? This Patriotic Coffee Table would be just the thing!

This Memorial Day Pallet Project Idea would be excellent to adapt as a display case for medals, memorabilia, old photos and more of your fallen military service family member.

Everything patriotic doesn’t have to be a flag or painted to resemble a flag. How about just using the colors of your flag for a great Pallet Lounge Set?


Here’s a subtle way to display your country pride with your flag’s colors as a decorative theme!

Decorate for that Memorial Day Gathering the easy way – with a cute Pallet Fence all tricked out in a patriotic theme!

Of course, our list of Memorial Day Pallet Project Ideas wouldn’t be complete without a Rustic Pallet Flag. This crafter came up with a unique way to address the stars – and no painting required!


Brilliant – no painting involved whatsoever if you use oak and pine. ;D

Which branch of the service did it best? So far, the only one representing is the Navy… Guess this is a challenge to the Army, Marines & Air Force to come up with their own Military-Themed Pallet Bars! :D


If you’re going to do it, go big like this outrageous Navy-themed Kegerator. That’s a party in a box!

Here’s another fun Holiday-Themed Home Decor idea for you!

Editor’s Note: Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

You've got too much toilet paper rolls in your bathroom? Do you like the trees? You've got a pallet? I have a solution for you :)

Make your bathroom an adventure your little ones will love to “go” to! Wouldn’t this Fun Pallet Toilet Paper Tree make an excellent start to a themed bathroom for your kids? It could even help with potty training, and it’s a simple project to make with only one pallet!

This Fun Pallet Toilet Paper Tree is a brilliant idea to make T.P. storage interesting and accessible, but could be converted to a coat rack too!

First, find a pallet and break it down into pieces. Remove the nails or fasteners. Next, sand the boards. Use a long pallet to form the trunk of the tree, and then just have fun, following any organic shape you want. If it’s not perfect, that’s probably better! Attach the boards together with dowels and glue, and secure with screws. Continue building your tree until it is the desired shape and size for your room. Create a base with one stringer end. Primer and paint the tree, or stain it to your liking. This would be a great project to involve the kids! You could even have them help choose the branch layout. Brilliant!










Continue renovating that bathroom with a durable, attractive Pallet Bathroom Sink Vanity!

Make your backyard into party central with this Pallet Garden Bar! You only need 6 pallets and some scrap plywood. You can add some class and even use some laminate material to cover the plywood (or pallet base) for the counters.

Make events even more special with this fun Backyard Pallet Garden Bar that you can build in one day!

The sides are a pallet that I cut in half. The front of the bar was made by removing the lower deck boards from the remaining pallets. Then, use those boards to fill in the gaps so that the front is solid. A scrap board and pallet block created a little shelf for some coffee cups.






If you don’t have a patio area, MAKE ONE FROM PALLETS! Here’s a great idea for a backyard patio deck!

Read Build Your Own Stunning Sliding Pallet Barn Doors! by Granny K on 1001 Pallets!

I wanted to make a set of sliding doors for the closet in this room because the bed is so far over that it gets in the way of opening the closet door. The perfect solution was to create a pair of Sliding Pallet Barn Doors! And with a Stanley Hardware Sliding Barn Door Hardware kit, it was easy.

Editor’s note: Please see our page on Workshop Safety whenever making any of your awesome pallet projects. ALWAYS wear all protective gear as recommended by the manufacturers, and ALWAYS wear eye protection!

These Sliding Pallet Barn Doors would look great in an office, in closets, or anywhere you have clearance issues with furniture.

This set of rustic barn doors features a diamond-shaped trim overlay and beautiful Stanley Hardware provided by Stanley Hardware, as well as a rich brown stain by PureColorInc.com. I installed the doors with a decorative interior sliding door kit that was very easy to use. These doors address clearance issues and make my hobby room more functional. Although I had a few learning curves, I’m very pleased with the design and outcome.

Supplies needed to build your own set of Sliding Pallet Barn Doors:

  • Two sets of this – N186-960 920   Decorative Interior Sliding Door Hardware Kit 72” Oil Rubbed Bronze
  • Two each – N187-010  V1000  Bar Pull 10” Handles Oil Rubbed Bronze
  • Screws (ok to use indoor, decorative screws on interior doors) – adjust to the thickness of the wood you’re using
  • Stain – any color(s) you like; I used stains by Pure Color Inc.
  • The sealant of your choice – polyurethane, varnish, etc.
  • 4’ x 8’ ½” thick plywood sheet
  • 3-4 pallets, dismantled, nails removed and sanded (or planned) to the smoothness you prefer.

Planning out your project: Don’t be afraid to revise your ideas! I had to adjust my Pallet Barn Doors!

The original closet door measured 24” wide, with 19” clearance on one wall and only 14” clearance on the other wall. I had to make two narrow doors because I couldn’t make the rail for the sliding rail system stick out past where the wall stopped. I made the doors the size of the opening, but the next set I’ll make about 3 – 4” wider than the opening for aesthetics. When removing the door frame, the opening will be much larger, so take that into consideration. I ended up revising my drawing and ideas a few times during this process and learned quite a bit from this project. Here is my drawing of my project:

Pallet Barn Doors1

Even though they’re called Sliding Pallet Barn Doors, you can use them in any room – instead of an expensive (and sometimes difficult) pocket door. Close these easily to separate your rooms, in place of closet or bedroom doors, or as actual barn doors!

Removing the Original Door Frame: Prepping for your Pallet Barn Doors

This is what the door opening looks like with the original door frame removed. I attached some of the new trim already in this photo. I stained and applied varnish to the pallet trim boards in advance to reduce odors.

Pallet Barn Doors2

A picture of the exposed door frame with some of the trim I was installing to cover it.

Pallet Barn Doors3

Typical stick-framing uses 2”x4” boards (actually around 1.5” x 3.5” unless it is old timber), so that’s why 3-4” wider would be appropriate. You’ll also need to add a little height to the door for the same reason, and more if your door has a threshold.

Don’t Get Warped: Prepping the wood up for my Pallet Barn Doors project & handy tips I learned:

I selected my pallet wood and thoroughly removed all nails and staples. If you rush this step, you’ll be buying new planer blades if you use a power planer! If you don’t have a planer, just sand it instead.

Pallet Barn Doors4

Picking out and prepping the pallet wood – I carefully removed all the nails and staples.

Lesson learned: Store your plywood flat. I stacked the plywood vertically, and it WARPED! This caused some assembly issues later when I tried to straighten it all by screwing it in place. I hoped that this would straighten everything, but it actually began warping the pallet boards! Then I tried to hold the doors down flat with bricks and cinder blocks. It wasn’t a perfect fix on the first try. Don’t fight the warp – just put your plywood flat in the first place!

Pallet Barn Doors5

Just a little warped!

Laying out your Sliding Pallet Barn Doors – Try it out first & adjust fit as necessary.

I measured the width of the nicest pallet wood I wanted to use as trim and then drew out a pattern on the plywood to start. Next, I cut the angles necessary and kept those pieces flat on the ground where they wouldn’t get disturbed (or used in error). Next, I laid out the rest of the wood on top of the plywood, installing them with screws after staggering the joints a bit. I didn’t screw on the trim yet. Be sure to check the length of your screws. Mine were too long, and I ended up having to grind off the excess with an electric angle grinder. It worked fine, but it’s extra work I could’ve avoided.

Pallet Barn Doors6

This is one of the doors, cut to the dimensions on my drawing. I found the two center points (both horizontal and vertical) and then figured out how big of a diamond-shape I wanted by playing around with a few pieces of wood at first. Once I decided approximately how big of a diamond-shape I wanted, I drew it out.

Pallet Barn Doors7

A close-up of the boards I selected for the trim. I loved the grain!

Pallet Barn Doors8

After I had done my drawing for the pattern, I cut the trim pieces and set them aside, leaving them in the shape/orientation they needed to be in order to have tight-fitting joints. I stored them flat (haha), and began installing boards onto the doors.

My little OOPS moment. I used screws that were a bit too long, and they came out through the back. I used an electric angle grinder to cut them off flush.

Pallet Barn Doors12

The handy-dandy, fix-everything, problem-solving, electric angle grinder. It should be in every woman’s arsenal.

I like the look of the joints being staggered a little bit, but wanted the smaller pieces towards the bottom.

Add some color to your room décor – These Sliding Pallet Barn Doors feature two tones for interest

I put all the boards on the plywood, and stained it.  The stain was a mixture of a bunch of small amounts of stain from Pure Color, Inc. that I custom-blended until I liked the tone. However, I found out I had only mixed enough for one door! I thought of several expletives (and probably said some too). So, I started mixing once again, and this time not only did I match it, but I made enough to do both doors on both sides, as well as the entire door trim. I used a silvery-gray stain on the decorative trim, and after it was dry, I attached it to the doors (after straightening the warp out).

What if you do encounter problems in your DIY Pallet Project? Adapt your project like I did on these warped Sliding Pallet Barn Doors!

I realized the doors were still really warped after I finished staining them. I had hoped the moisture from the stain would help allow the wood to relax a bit.  First, I stacked the doors up on scrap pallet blocks, but they didn’t sag back down. Next, I tried using the bricks.  I left them two days this way, and it was still warped, but not nearly as much as before.  Maybe it will work itself out, right? Finally, I flipped the doors over the other direction, stacked them on spare bricks and weighted them down in the centers. It finally straightened the doors out. Just don’t give up! Finally, I attached the handles and varnished both doors with several coats of Minwax Satin Polyurethane Varnish.

Pallet Barn Doors18

My first attempt to straighten the doors. I’d stained the doors, but they were still curled like potato chips, so I put bricks on both ends to hold the doors flat. First, I left them like this for two days, but they still weren’t flat. I had to take the next step . . .

Pallet Barn Doors19

I finally resorted to flipping the doors over face-down and applying a bit of pressure – a stack of bricks. Then… I waited and checked them daily. Once they were bent back to approximately straight, I freed them from the brick-torture. :)

Finishing out the door frame on my Sliding Pallet Barn Doors

I cut and fit the boards to the frame, stained them and allowed them to dry. When they were dry, I installed them into the door frame so I could begin installing the sliding door kit. To install the door slider floor guide, I had to think fast. I couldn’t screw in the wood because it is some kind of laminate floor on top of concrete.  Instead, I used Power Grab Construction Adhesive and glued it down.  There is a board within the door frame on the floor, and then in front of the door, I put another board. This is necessary because there has to be wood to screw in the floor guides for the doors. I made that piece the full width of the wall in that space.

Pallet Barn Doors20

Be willing to adapt-on-the-fly! I had to improvise when I realized I had to have a bottom board for the bottom guide rail. I used Power Grab Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive, and it worked like a charm.

I also had to add a header board for the top rail to install to.

Pallet Barn Doors23

This is a view looking down at the floor. These little guides keep the doors from just flopping front-to-back when you grab the handle. They’re an important safety piece, so you don’t accidentally pull too hard and pull the door entirely off of the top rail!

Pallet Barn Doors24

The door guides are those small black things in the lower corner of the door. They are just little bumpers to keep the doors from swinging out or pushing in. They have enough clearance to let the doors slide side-to-side easily.

Pallet Barn Doors25

The doors are done.  It is time to install the hardware and get them installed in my room!

Installing the hardware on my Sliding Pallet Doors – you may have to modify the kit to your door frame

Be sure to read the directions thoroughly, as you may need to modify installation for your needs. I read them about four times to figure out how to put up the rail. I had to modify it due to the short length/width of the wall there at the door.  The area is 54”, gap and the rail is 72”.  We cut the rail using a reciprocating saw, and sanded the sharp edges that were left.  Also, that meant that the installation holes weren’t where I needed them. So, I clamped the steel rail in my drill press and drilled the holes for attaching it to the wall.  Next, I sprayed it with flat black paint so there wouldn’t be silver showing where I drilled and sawed.

Pallet Barn Doors26

When you get all the hardware installed, here is what it should look like. :D

Another view of the door hardware. I used nuts to fill some of the gaps.

Here are the end bumpers on the top rail. The kit is actually pretty easy to assemble – but read the directions a couple of times first, so you have a good idea of the steps. Lay out your hardware clearly somewhere that you will not spill it. :)

Installing the hardware on my Sliding Pallet Doors – part 2:

There are spacers that make room for the rollers between the rail and the wall.  It is all in the directions, but take a moment to just lay out all the hardware to get an idea of what you’re doing. Be sure and use a level to get the rail straight.  The rails have stops that go onto the rail before attaching above the door opening. Be sure you don’t open the door right off of the rail.  Then I had to attach the hardware to the tops of the doors.  Measure, drill, bolt up…..but I had to adjust to being perfect.  Remember, I am working with pallet wood, on top of the fact that getting anything squared out is next to impossible for me. Install the floor guides and the roller hardware. Finally, heft the doors up in place (protect your back!), and you’ve got an amazing set of sliding barn doors!

My COMPLETED DOOR PROJECT! Woo-hoo! Here is what the doors look like when they are open.

Pallet Barn Doors31

Just a close-up so you can see the completed doors, with the beautiful Stanley Hardware, installed, and hanging in my room!

When have pallets ever looked better? I am very happy with this project. Also, I learned a few things, like adjusting the width, and how to adapt a “one-size-fits-all” kit to really fit all of my needs.

Pallet Barn Doors33

I love this Stanley Hardware Sliding Barn Door Kit. It is rustic but still is neat and beautiful. The oil-rubbed bronze color goes great with the brown and silvery stains I had on hand, and against the color of the wall too.

I made this Diamond Pattern Pallet Barn Door in three layers. The inside layer is 1″ x 6″ pine boards stained a carbon gray. I made the middle layer using pallet boards I cut in a diamond pattern. Then, I belted it with more of the 1″ x 6″ pine.  The outermost layer is the western cedar strapping.

This Diamond Pattern Pallet Barn Door would be amazing on indoor projects too!

There are no measurements, as you’ll have to make the door to fit the door opening size at your home or shed.

I made this very large Pallet Sectional Sofa for my game room. I had to cut this sofa into two pieces to fit it into the game room. Then, I reassembled it, and we were good to go! It measures 9′ on the long side 6′ on the sort. Additionally, I cut the backrest to be 2′ high, and the sofa is all upcycled wood.

Lucky enough to have a game room or man cave? Then you need this terrific Pallet Sectional Sofa!

I used about 90% pallet wood. I made the rest by using reclaimed wood that found. The wood came from a few old box springs and an old bookshelf we weren’t using anymore. The last piece was some leftover plywood. It all went together with some 2″ 1″1/2″ sheetrock screws I already had. Built it right on the ground in my back yard. Cut it in two pieces and brought it into our game room and here it sits.



Here’s an idea for YOUR game room (or man cave) – a nice twist on a Coffee Table.

Easy pallet wood boxes for planting flowers or vegetables.

A lady from our church asked me to make her some large Pallet Wood Planter Boxes for her patio. She wanted to plant flowers on them and place them on her patio. They were easy to build and consisted entirely of pallet wood. A person could make them to any size they needed to suit their needs.

Pallet Wood Planter Boxes for your front porch, patio, or another garden area. If you make large planter boxes, consider putting them on wheels!

I built a simple frame and then attached the deck boards that I cut to the proper length. Since they will be outside, I used deck screws to fasten the boards together, and after I had completed them, I applied two coats of outdoor polyurethane. To construct the pallets I used my cordless drill, and my miter saw. A simple design, and except for the cost of the screws, free of cost. If you tried to buy similar ones at the home and garden centers, you’d pay a LOT. Plus, you’re upcycling!

You can line it, or just use it to place pre-potted flowers into. The options are just about endless!




Now that you’re beautifying your outdoor area, here’s an idea for a Locking Storage Bench!

Three shelf pallet wood tv stand/entertainment center.

Someone asked me if I could make them a Pallet Television Stand Entertainment Center,  so I searched for some ideas. I found several ideas on 1001pallets that I slightly modified and built to the size she needed.

This Pallet Television Stand could be a handy side table or even a gaming center!

Additionally, I had to purchase four 6′ 1″ x 4″s. I used them for the front and back shelf supports, and for the middle and bottom shelves. Everything else used was pallet wood. She asked for hers to be 36″ high by 54″ wide and 17″ deep. I used 2″ and 2 1/2″ screws to build the frame and 1 1/4″ trim nails and wood glue to attach the deck boards as shelves. As you can see from one of the photos I happened to have two deck boards that had some large knot holes in them. I used them for the top shelf and installed them with the holes near the back so there would be a place to run the wires and cables for the television and DVD player and any other electronics.

Maybe make a Pallet Television Stand for your man cave or woman cave?

The tools used were my table saw, miter saw, hammer, and cordless drill for construction. I sanded and stained the stand, but didn’t apply any polyurethane in order to keep a more rustic look.





Great job – you’ll be hosting parties quickly – better make yourself a nice Coffee Table to hold those snacks and beverages! :D

I created this Red Pallet Garden Bench by simply cutting a red pallet into two pieces lengthwise. I made two frames for the feet and armrest by sandwiching several leftover deck boards for a sturdy and stylish look.

You only need a few basic tools to make this Red Pallet Garden Bench for your garden area!

First, cut a single pallet into two pieces lengthwise. Next, add an extra deck board along one edge of the seat rest, and on the back edge. These will provide support and extra places to secure the backrest too. Secure at any angle you prefer. Sand down edges and surfaces to remove any splinters. See my photos to recreate the frames/armrests. I stacked three boards but staggered the joints so that the frames are screwed along multiple points and will provide years of sturdy, safe support.

It’s Springtime, and time to get outdoors! After you get those gardens planted and the yard spruced up, you need a gorgeous place to relax and enjoy your hard work! We’re here to help you Make Your Outdoor Living Areas Spectacular Using Pallets!

Here’s an easy and clever way to create comfortable Make Outdoor Living Areas – a Pallet Deck!


This is a great DIY Pallet Project – tame your back yard and create a great space to enjoy time with your family and friends while staying on a budget!

Get rid of that rickety little three-step back porch, and put in a stunning Backyard Deck like this one!


This stunning Pallet Project has several different levels in this back deck, as well as a great set of pallet furniture to compliment it.

But what if you live in an urban area and only have a rooftop? No worries! Look at this Pallet Rooftop Terrace Lounge, and you may consider moving INTO the city!


A beautiful way to turn any dull or unused space into a gorgeous Pallet Terrace!

If you already have a porch or patio but need a Pallet Bench, Pallet Chair, or Pallet Sofa, we have hundreds of ideas. Here’s a terrific Pallet Terrace Set to inspire you!


A Pallet Sofa, Pallet Planters, Pallet Coffee Table and Pallet Side Tables never looked better!

Add some color to your Outdoor Living Areas with a simple Pallet Deck and Planter set!


This Pallet Deck is a simple idea and could be incorporated in many small spaces. Add a few pallet planters, and you will have your own outdoor oasis!

To live, you’ve got to eat, so you will need a BBQ Side Table!


Nothing worse than the excitement of grilling, and you hurry outdoors to put the pile of goodies on your tray down onto the barbecue, but you have no side table! Fret no more! Make a handy BBQ accompanying table like this one and be ready for any occasion!

Pallet Terraces and Decks can look elegant and contemporary, too! Outdoor Living Areas like these will make going indoors a difficult choice!


Improve the view with some Pallet Planters. Staggering the height and painting everything white really added a touch of class and visual interest!

Redo or create a Pallet Balcony to enjoy the outdoors on a small scale. Just check with your local planning or code enforcement for regulations first.


You can make a deck out of expensive wood, or have a BIGGER PALLET DECK instead. Top it off with more pallet wood or store-bought if you choose!

Transform your bland courtyard into a beautiful Pallet Paradise!


This courtyard terrace used pallets like a wooden carpet to create a getaway from the urban jungle. Brilliant!

Pallets are Prettier in Pink! This Pink Lounge would be a great Woman’s Cave!


Dress up some Pallet Sofas and a Pallet Table with bright, fluffy cushions and throw pillows!

Here’s another great Pallet Deck to make your outdoor living areas more comfortable.


An Outdoor Living Area does not need to be huge. This smaller-sized Pallet Backyard Deck is ideal for a couple – and their furry friends of course.

Make a Covered Pallet Terrace area to give you a shady place to enjoy your Outdoor Living Area without being too hot or getting sunburned!


Add a bit of whimsy by using the natural patterning of Pallets and face the wood in different directions. This is a very good idea to make an existing cement or tiled area in the back yard a functional and useful Outdoor Living Area for any gathering!

I wanted to create something different so decided on making my own chairs and table using 4 and a half pallets!

My first pallet project: this Sleek Pallet Loveseat Set! I got five pallets and made this set by building a box and then building up and around from there.

This Sleek Pallet Loveseat Set would look just as terrific in a living room or on a terrace!

After I had built the main seat box, I built the seat back to the same width. I created frames for both arms (sides) of the chairs, and they fit snugly to the seatback. Then I added deck boards to fill in all surfaces with a snug fit. The table is another little box, but then I added legs on the inside. I stained and varnished the set, and I’m very happy with my first pallet project!

Editor’s note: Great job for your first project! We look forward to much more!!! Happy Palleting!

With this great loveseat set, you only need a Picnic Table to have a great place for family gatherings!
