Welcome summer with a lovely pallet sign that has this very message written on it. It would make a beautiful decoration for your patio. You only need a single pallet for the project and you won’t even be using all the wood. Use a circular saw to cut the wood pieces. Then take some sandpaper and make the boards smooth and ready to be painted. You can give the whole sign a coat of white paint and then put a stencil on top to write the actual message. You can use paint in different colors for this part. As you can see, it’s a very simple project. Check out the full tutorial on Ishouldbemoppingthefloor if you need more details.

There’s no need to even disassemble the pallet. Just leave it like that and give it a light sanding. Then get acrylic paint in different colors (as many as there are boards on the pallet). Paint each board a different color and create a rainbow effect. Then attach clamps and rings so you can later hang terracotta pots and turn the pallet into a vertical garden.

A pallet herb planter would be really easy to make out of a pallet. You’d only need to make a few transformations in order to repurpose it as a planter. The requires materials include landscaping or weed control fabric, a staple gun and scissors. Cut some fabric into a rectangle large enough to make a pocket for one section of the pallet. Once you’re happy with how it fits, repeat the process for the other sections. Then staple the fabric in place around the edges. You can then put soil in and add the plants and herbs. {found on Floralandfeather}.

Now let’s check some actual patio furniture which you can make out of a pallet. The table featured on Inspirationsbyd would be a suitable starting project. To make it, you need a pallet, four legs, sandpaper, paint, nails or screws, a drill and wood stain. Attach four legs to the pallet and paint them white. The part of the table which serves as a table top is stained here and the rest is painted white to match the legs. Obviously, you can create your own look and make adjustments to the project.

The table featured on Homestory is also made from a pallet but its design is a little bit more complex. All you need for such a project is the pallet, a saw, screws and a screwdriver. Cut the pallet along the central beam to make two halves. Remove the boards and then cut the support beams to make four legs for the table and a frame for the top. If you want to also add the planter at the center, you’ll have to cut a few of the boards smaller and make a hole which you can fill with a container.

With enough pallets, you can make a whole sectional sofa for the patio. The first thing you need to do is measure one of the pallets to figure out how large the sections need to be. It should be enough to just cut the pallets in half. If you tack three pallet sections you should get the right height for a comfortable seating unit. 15 pallets were used in total for the unit featured on Thesassysparrowblog. Once you have them all cut and stacked, you can secure them with nails or screws. You can also make a backrest out of pallet pieces. From here, you can start improvising. Stain or paint the sectional and add pillows to make it more comfortable.

There are many different methods you can use when building a pallet table. For example, you can simply take the pallet as it is and repurpose it into a table top. A different strategy involves removing the boards from the pallet and using them as shown on Lanaredstudio. An old door was also used for this project. All the pallet boards were cut to size to match the width of the door and then they were screwed in place, sanded and finished with a coat of varnish.

A pallet daybed wouldn’t look bad on the patio either. Two pallets are enough to build the frame if you want the design to be similar to the one on Prettyprudent. This daybed has casters for a flexible look. The first step when building the frame is to sand the pallets to make them smooth and splinter-free. Then the casters need to be attached and for that you need a drill. You can make side supports for the armrests and for the back out of metal pipes. Then simply put the mattress on and the pillows and you have a stylish daybed for your patio.
