Europallets are a great stepping stone into the wonderful world of upcycling and recycling because they don’t require much woodwoorking skills and they are cheap to pick up… or even free if you’re lucky. The key to a successful pallet project is a good sander. Since they’re not intended for home use, pallets are knocked together using unfinished wooden planks. If you build with untreated pallets, you will have splinters all over your body. Ouch!
You will need 3 Europallets and a bit of paint to complete this DIY project.
This is not a project for newbies. If you have a few upcycling builds under your belt, you can read full instructions here.
The set displayed on the photo will require 10 pallets and some screws to hold it all together.
Make Garden Furniture with Europallets
This one is similar to the previous project, however it’s more upmarket. The pallets have had nice finish, proper outdoor paint and it’s all finished with DIY cushions to make the furniture more comfortable.
It’s not just outdoor furniture that you can make from pallets. If they’re done to a high standard and painted nicely, it is feasible to use them as indoor furniture.
