For this Little Apple Barn Kid's Pallet Bench I used only one large commercial pallet. This type of pallet looks like two pallets that have been nailed together with 2x4" boards for extra strength to load heavy equipment onto for transportation.
My Little Apple Barn Kid's Pallet Bench:
I cut this into four sections and used the first section for the bench. The second part was installed as the back of the bench. I used the last two sections to create the roof. The large pallet had 2x4's on it to provide extra strength to the original pallet. I removed these and used them to make the roof and seating supports. Next, I used a jigsaw to cut out the basket shape and tiny apples out of scrap wood I had lying around. Additionally, I used a few extra pallet deck boards I had to make the picket fence armrests for the bench. I already had paint from previous projects. However, I but did have to buy screws and extra sandpaper.
My Little Apple Barn Kid's Pallet Bench - final thoughts:
I completed this project in a day except for painting. I had to paint larger portions of the bench first and then let it dry before I could paint characters on the fence and roof. The little tike that received this was elated with the finished project. Nothing better than a project made with joy and love! <3
