5 Easy Home Projects You Can Do With a Wood Pallet

Home & Garden 35

I loved the ingenuity and thriftiness of this headboard made from a found wood pallet, and it got me thinking about other projects you could do with the same material. Luckily, the Internet is ripe with clever people sharing their ideas.

Don't you think a colorful coat rack would make a happy addition to any mudroom? See four more home projects below:

If you love the farmhouse look, this custom pallet desk from Funky Junk Interiors will help you achieve that rustic feel.

For those of you who like the look but lack the skills, Katrin Arens creates lovely products from reclaimed wood -- including this hanging dish display.

Short on space? This bookshelf and bike rack from Chris Shutter will help with storage solutions even on a budget.

Ashley Ann made this lovely and comfy reading bed for her daughter's nursery. I love the hanging cluster of lanterns too! 

Is anybody else going to be staking out their local Home Depot or construction site to score one of these? Super cool and resourceful if you ask me!

Do you have any cool DIY projects you can make with a wood pallet?

I LOVE the coatrack! I'd really like to try making that. Where do you get a little pallet like that? Do you buy them at home depot or do you just go there and ask?

@jagamama - if you have any larger grocery stores or general merchandise stores around, they may have them piled up in the back. same for construction / contractors, or warehouses. you can also try craigslist; i've seen them listed there plenty of times. good luck! :)

I've heard that some palletts are not reccomended for repurposing, but I REALLY want to try some of these!

Thanks for the feature on my farm table styled desk! Such an honor! You may be interested in seeing my latest pallet sofa I made as well. :)
