Do you have a small balcony or narrow little hallway? You can make custom-fit furniture, such as this Pallet Balcony Lounge Set! It includes an L-shaped bench along with an ingenious folding table for easy seating arrangements.
How I made this Pallet Balcony Lounge Set:
I built this set from approximately five pallets. This project took me about 1-1/2 months to build. I spent almost two weeks of that time tearing pallets down, pulling nails and planning.
I built the bench to be a custom size and shape to fit a balcony (as shown in the photos attached). I made the table frame from four notched pallet stringers, with smaller pieces of wood at the feet to stabilize. I also added strips along the top of the folding table frame to finish the look out and provide structural support. I attached another deeply-notched pallet stringer across the lower back portion of the folding frame. I staggered and angled the legs, as shown in the photos. This lets the table can fold, and the legs don't hit one another. I used hinges on the underside of the table.
To finish, I stained the pallet furniture a dark walnut color and applied several coats of gloss polyurethane to seal/protect. I'm very pleased with the outcome of this project, and I hope it inspires you to make something out of pallets to fit your small spaces.
