Everyone knows that pallets are incredibly versatile and can be repurposed in all sorts of ingenious ways, but just how versatile are they really? Could you possibly incorporate a pallet in every single room of your home? We’re confident that the answer to this question is yes and we’ve prepared a bunch of pallet furniture and accessory ideas that support it.
Nobody likes a messy garage but unfortunately we see it all too often and it’s a shame considering how easy it would be to organize the space. A pallet is all you need in order to make a practical storage and organization system for all your tools, including the tiny ones. Check out the tutorial on funkyjunkinteriors.
Entryway welcome sign
You don’t need an entire pallet to make this lovely welcome sign. A single pallet board is enough. Paint it in a color that matches your house or pick a theme and go with it. You can even add some string art to make the design more interesting and special.
A large pallet planter like this one would be perfect for the entryway or the balcony. You can even keep it outside and place it next to your front door or out on the porch. If you prefer a different color, switch the white exterior for something that suits you better.
For your garden you could build a simple bench using pallets. This one has a colorful design that gives it a playful and cheerful look but you can definitely customize your own bench however you see fit. There’s no backrest since the bench sits here against the fence but you can add cushions for increased comfort.
Herb garden in a pallet
With only a few easy modifications you can turn a wooden pallet into a vertical garden for all your favorite herbs. Use chalkboard paint to make built-in labels for your herbs and feel free to paint or stain the rest of the pallet if you want to. You could add this pallet herb garden to your kitchen or keep it outside.
Kitchen wine rack
Another cool pallet project for the kitchen is this wall-mounted wine rack. It’s small which makes it versatile as you can find room for it even in a tiny kitchen. Also, it has this nice built-in rack at the bottom for glasses which is a cool touch.
Living room table
A reclaimed pallet can also be used to create a custom little table which you can add to your living room. Give your pallet table hairpin legs so it looks sleek and lightweight. This could be your new coffee table or you can keep it by the sofa as a sort of accent piece.
