Pallet Pleasers

Think of wooden pallets as the adult version of Legos. There are just so many creative ways to use them for the home. Aspiring interior designers and DIY builders will find that wooden ballets are the basic building blocks for great, simple and creative DIY. 

Here are some inspiring DIY projects that you may want to try at home. Don’t forget to prep the wood for use by sanding them down first and applying a few coats of varnish. 

1. Mobile Garden – Make a mobile garden by attaching a few cart wheels to the bottom of a pallet. Then close up the bottom with plywood. In between the pallet boards, arrange the potted plants. You may also hang this on the wall for a vertical garden. 

2. Closet and shoe rack – Nail a few pallets onto an empty wall and get an instant shoe rack. (You can hang your shoes by the heels.) For additional flair, paint the boards your preferred color to match the interiors of your walk-in closet. You can also include a few clothing hooks nailed across the bottom layer to hang your necklaces and favourite bags. 

3. Lounge set up – For a Moroccan-themed night out in the garden, lay down the pallet boards across the floor. Then place carpets and fluffy pillows on top for optimum comfort. When the party’s done, easily put the pallets away by stacking them up neatly in the corner until your next grand party. 


4. Platform bed – Arrange pallets to the width and height of your liking and secure with nails. Put a mattress on top and you have a sturdy, inexpensive platform bed frame.
