If you remember my post on how to make your own Free Wood Pallet Signs, you know that the most amazing surprise occurred as I rounded the corner of my husband’s office – Free Wood Pallets – hundreds of them (see middle pic), all for the taking. Since then my mind has been reeling with potential projects. Yes, I create in my mind. It’s so easy to be a master of that, isn’t it? 😉
I wish I could tell you that I have already hauled them home and built the most amazing projects out of them, but alas, they still sit. August was quite frankly, the busiest month of my year with my Becoming Conference and taking our eldest nine hours away to college. I am still attempting to recover, but I will, oh yes, I will and then those pallets are mine.
The good thing about my husband’s office is they keep getting those pallets, so I don’t have to worry about time.
Long before Pinterest was all the rage (feel free to follow me there), I took a work trip to LA. The moment I walked into the Savings.com office, I was memorized.
They had taken an old warehouse and transformed it into the coolest office space with these Wood Pallet tables at the center of the space.
Since then, creating amazing pieces out of old Wood Pallets has taken the DIY world by storm and I love that we can re-purpose and reuse things that was once considered trash.
Be amazed at all the creativity.
If you are looking at an easy project to begin with, don’t miss this great tutorial on Making Your Own Free Pallet Sign.
I incorporate words of truth throughout our entire house and this is a perfect way to customize it without spending the big bucks.
Becky from Infarrantly Creative gives you wonderful directions for making a Table Top Flower Trough from wood slats or fence pickets. She is so talented and always has amazing ideas.
Kim, from Sand and Sisel, and I got to hang out a few weeks ago in Indy, and she is such a delight. Take a peek at how she perfectly replicated this Pottery Barn Kids Beach Banner using what she had on hand – some good ‘ole wood pallet pieces. I love a good DIY
copy cat inspiration project. It’s always a compliment. 🙂
Julie showed how she made this AMAZING Christmas tree on her pallets. I am SO doing this next year with her detailed instructions.
Sticking with that Pottery Barn feel, Kelly has this amazing Pallet Peg Board. Isn’t it perfect? I love the old world feel. Browse her site. She has a wealth of great projects.
Another talented sweet friend of mine, Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After, eyed this Pallet Wood Restoration Hardware factory cart, but knew it was priced out of their budget. Her amazing hubby surprised her with it for their anniversary? WOW!! Check out their DIY copy cat cart, it’s gorgeous!
This pallet wood sofa reveal from Funky Junk Interiors is just gorgeous. It was so popular that she built another one, but you must pop over to see it, as well as her detailed instructions.
How adorable and functional is this garden organizer from Our Little Acre? I love it! This year I win the worlds ugliest garden, but this sure would make me feel more capable. 🙂
Becky from Beyond the Picket Fence shared her adorable rolling magazine cart/shelf. I’m always looking for storage ideas and this is so doable.
This Perfect pallet desk is ideal for a wall where depth is in an issue. Find the directions at Peculiarmee.
Check out the amazing tutorial for this pallet sofa by Scraphackers. Plus, I just love her white washed floors, don’t you?
This is just a small sampling of all the Wood Pallet Inspiration that is out there.
I’m thinking some great outdoor fall projects need to happen from some of those pallet that have my name on them.
How about you? Have you seen or attempting any inspiring wood pallet projects?
I’d love to see them.
such amazing projects! i have yet to do one! i’ve gotta get on that.
I wish I could get a few of these. I have one and I am growing rosemary & mums in it. See website of sq. foot gardening and how he grows veggies in small spaces. It is so easy to water whatever you are growing. Much better than long garden rows.
Erma – that is such a great idea to grow plants in it. I may have to think about that for next year in helping trellis things as well. 🙂
As much as I love the DIY pallets crafts, you should be very careful about using pressure treated and pesticide laden pallets, especially ones from overseas. My husband works for a food warehouse and some of their pallets are treated with chemicals to keep away pests and rodents. I would not want to use these in my home. There are untreated ones out there.Just Google how to tell the difference. The treated ones should be marked with codes.
Yes, that is a great tip that I should have included for sure. Thanks for reminding us.
Such an excellent idea! I saw a lot of wood pallets but most of them were put to trash. Thanks for this project.
I would like to see if you have plans available for any of the things you have listed here. Specifically, I am very interested in the table you have pictured just under the comments about your husbands office space. I would love to make that! I just don’t know how 🙂
