25 Creative Ways to Repurpose Pallets
Not sure what a pallet is? Or what it has to do with a palate or palette? Well, pallets are often used as shipping crates, and hundreds of them are left at junkyards, on the sidewalk, and in dumpsters. Your palate is your appreciation of taste and flavor, and a palette is a range of colors or the board you mix paints on.
But back to pallets! With a little help from the hardware store and a good workspace, you can turn pallets into desks, chairs, coffee tables, wall art, and more. If you’re a seasoned DIY’er, maybe you’ve even dabbled in a pallet project yourself. In any case, here are 20 projects that are all about repurposing pallets. And be sure to stay tuned for our own collection of pallet projects in the weeks to come!
