27 Creative Ways To Use Wood Pallets

I love looking at DIY projects that involve Wood Pallets! A few years ago I wanted a new patio table. However, the one that I wanted cost more than $300 bucks. Not willing to pay a ton of money for an outdoor table, we decided to create one out of wood pallets. That was my first DIY project. After that, I created a Patio Bar and a lounge area!

You can get really creative with wood pallets. The internet, especially Pinterest is crawling with ways to use wood pallets. I put a few together for you to check out: 27 Creative Ways To Use Wood Pallets!

    I’ve only just started realising the potential of pallets so I’m now constantly on the look out for old pallets. Thanks for the round up.

  7. How to great to have all those ideas in one place! I’ve done a couple of pallet projects myself and while I hate the work of ripping them apart, I usually love the end result.

      I know! But I love wood pallet projects, esp when I can find free wood!

    I never knew so many great projects could be made from pallets! This is a great list, and I’ll be adding a few to my holiday project list. I do wonder, though, how you choose a good pallet for this kind of thing? I always worry about what might have been on the pallet (like meat) while it was being used for shipping.

    It’s really amazing to know how to re-use these wooden pallets. I was looking around checking some creative ways that I can put my old wooden pallets to use and I think I now have an idea of how these things could be put to use. I have lots of them laying and I think that it’s time they found some work. thanks for sharing these ideas.
