Have you seen how eye-catching and entertaining it is to make furniture with pallets? Do you think it could be a good one to decorate your house? Come and review with me 100 Designs of Furniture with Pallets for Interior and Exterior.
How to make furniture with pallets
In case you don’t know, pallets are an element used to move and store different things. They are widely used in companies for this purpose, so we can get them easily. In their primary function, they look like you see in the picture above.
They started to be widely used in decoration, a little with the idea of reusing rustic elements, and making them decorative in an alternative home plan, but with the passing of time, these pallets have been transformed into home elements with more and more sophistication, at such a level that they no longer look like pallets, nor do they look rustic.
How to prepare the pallet to become a piece of furniture
The previous preparation of a pallet, is not very complex, so any of us could do the treatment as any rustic wood (apply anti-fungus, remove nails or other elements attached and most importantly, sand the surface very well).
You should also make sure when choosing the pallets you are going to use to make your furniture look good, without any breaks or holes and in the event that you need several to pile them up, that they are all the same size.
Let’s go over 120 ideas for furniture with pallets, subdivided into ideas for internal and then external elements. Let’s see what you think!
Interior Decoration Pallets
Tables with pallets
I think the first thing I think of when I talk about pallets is a table. However, there are as many types of tables as there are fish in the sea, so we will review different ideas built with this very entertaining concept:
Here we see a table dividing environments, in the case of this picture, separates two small spaces.
Although in the photo it is a table from a tent, you can build one of this type to make a high table in your home, as a kind of bar. Also think that tables with glass are now a trend.
One of the most recurrent and easy to get pallet tables. Once you have the pallet clean, just add some wheels in each corner and you’re done.
Interlocking coffee table that you can make with pallets or also, with wooden fruit boxes.
Again using a glass board for a modern design. We also see this idea in the picture below.
Receivers with pallets
Chairs and armchairs with pallets
You must have already seen in the previous section that they also make pallet chairs, let’s see below some chairs and general ideas of elements to sit and have a nice time:
The pallets can also be used to create beautiful indoor seating, as a sofa or simply to create a special atmosphere in the living room or bedroom. Look at these two chairs made 100% from pallets. They look amazing!
We can also see how well they look by combining cushions of the same colour. Just create the base with three pallets and support another three as a backrest.
You can create your own chairs and armchairs for your garden or terrace, make comfortable structures that you can accommodate with cushions and foams that allow you to enjoy your new seats.
These same structures can be used as your seats at the beach, ideal for watching a sunset. You will see that they are already being placed in many beaches to see the best sunsets, that you don’t even have to take them yourselves but there is usually a high occupation, so don’t lose sight of creating your own hammock and seat for the beach.
Another sensational option for the summer is to create some great poufs built on a pallet base, then just put the foam and cushions to make them comfortable. In addition, you can always build a table to have a drink comfortably.
Beds with pallets
The truth is that it would never have occurred to me that from those rustic and almost vulgar wooden boxes, we could have such wonderful and stylish creations, not only in the courtyard but also in our own bedroom. Let’s see!
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there are basically two ways of making furniture with pallets; the first is to occupy the pallets as drawers and assemble them in a lay-type way. The second is to dismantle the boxes and use their wood.
Headboards and bed bases with pallets
In the previous photos we saw how the complete pallet drawers were used, in the following photos we see how the bed and its bed base were made with the wood of dismantled pallets.
Notice how beautiful the headboard looks with the different colors thanks to the treatment of the different woods:
Other interior ideas
Let’s look at some other ideas that I’ve been collecting that I found very useful and others that I found very charming. Let’s see what you think, maybe you’ll dare to build one of the following:
The bathroom can also be one of those spaces where you can incorporate pallet furniture into your decor. One of the examples you have in this photograph is a pallet furniture on which the washings have been placed, and you can choose to include boxes as drawers among the eggs.
You can also build other furniture with pallets for storage, being able to create vertical furniture comfortable and fast.
Exterior decoration with pallets
As you must have noticed, there are many ideas for making furniture or elements with pallets, now we will see more ideas for our garden or outdoor patio.
Planters with pallets
One of the most common ways we will see pallets, is as gardeners. In the following picture we see a quite simple idea to make a small garden with pallets:
In the next two photos we see a pallet practically in its original state as a pot stand; it gives it a rustic touch and above all, it is very useful. Personally I think that in the photos it doesn’t look very nice, but with a little of charm this is an excellent idea, worthy of being put into practice:
Always remember to make the gardens with the right plants for the conditions of your home, check out this article from Shrubs for the Home, so you can get a little oriented on the subject and you can make a perfect garden. Now let’s look at vertical gardens:
On the pallets you can fix some pot hooks so you can place them at different heights, you can even combine different types of hooks (widths) to enhance a more striking aesthetic composition.
If you want to add even more color to your vertical garden, you can paint the pallets with any color you like: yellow, red, turquoise, etc. Then you only have to combine that color with the plants you have chosen, such as based on the flowers, their colors or their shapes.
You can also create vertical interior gardens, placing them at ground level and using them with a double function. A clear example is in this photograph, where you can see plants placed inside pallets, pots and books.
