A Wee Pallet Bench for a Wee Niece

  • 5 pallets

  • medium

  • 12h

  • $21

I made this Wee Pallet Bench from five pallets, a few recycled 2x4’s, and leftover pallet pieces. This project only cost around 21 dollars! My niece was thrilled, too!

Here's my Wee Pallet Bench for a precious Wee Niece:

First, I cut the 2x4’s to length. Next, I cut a pallet in half and mounted it to the 2x4’s to form the seat. I used the second half of the pallet to form the seat back. I added braces between the 2x4’s, but they also act as armrests.

Wee Pallet Bench – the roof:

I used two more pallets to create the roof and supported them into a peaked shape with triangular pieces that I cut. Next, I added more cross pieces to support the roof and mounted them to the 2x4s. I installed the roof and secured it in place.

Wee Pallet Bench – the fun parts:

I made the sunburst at the back of the bench from random pieces of a large pallet. I found the large pallet pieces at a construction site. Then I formed the small pickets on the sides of the bench from pieces that I trimmed to fit the design. I sanded everything thoroughly so the little ones won't get hurt. We painted all the surfaces with a good-quality, exterior gloss paint in kid-friendly colors, and had some fun with the artistic touches, including butterflies and flowers on the tiny picket fence details.

You could use a stencil if you didn't feel comfortable with freehand painting things like that.

I secured most of the build using 3" screws. I did have to purchase three cans of exterior gloss paint, although I did have a few other colors lying around to do the white pickets and decorative touches.

This was a very fun project and everyone who sees it just smiles!
