Pallet Project Ideas and DIY
Shipping pallets have become the DIY and repurposing craze thanks to bloggers like me and Pinterest! Here is a post for you showing you some of the cool ways I've been able to use shipping pallets in my DIY love.
Of course, there is the famous pallet wall. I first saw a pallet wall on Pinterest, and decided I had to have one! My husband and I constructed a small room in our house for an art studio using a total of eight pallets which we were able to find for free. We screwed them together and added hinges for extra support and a decorative element. We screwed them to the wall, the ceiling, and the floor. Our pallet wall was up for about a year, and even in a busy daycare (our home) it held up amazingly. It was very stable and when we were ready to take it down, it came down easily and the damage caused by the holes was minimal and easy to repair.
When springtime rolled around, I had another use for some of our left over pallets in mind. Three pallets became the pallet garden.
I loved our pallet garden this past summer. It brought endless fun to me and my kids! Click the pallet garden for a detailed how to on the pallet garden.
Hope you enjoy my pallet ideas, and feel free to share photos in the comments of your own fun pallet creations!
