You’ve probably heard that pallets are a budget-friendly way to decorate your home. Maybe you’ve even collected a few (I had five in my garage at last count) in hopes of completing a Pinterest-worthy project.
Still confused about what you can actually make with a pallet? Well, look no further. We’ve got nine cool—and totally doable—ideas for you.
1. Pallet Flower Box
Flip the pallet around to turn it into shabby chic flower boxes. This upright planter is an adorable addition to any garden.
2. Coffee Table
You are going to need more than just sandpaper and paint for this one—but not too much more. The extra effort is worth it. Not only does the table look amazing, but it easily moves out of the way to give you some extra space when needed.
3. Wall Decor
Pallets can be transformed into amazing personalized wall hangings. One of the most popular I have seen is the rustic American flag, but you could also paint it and add your favorite quote to add some inspiration to your home decor. Pallets are ideal for these projects because they can be made to fit any space.
4. Basic Bench
What’s fabulous about benches is that if you screw something up, you can always hide it with a pillow. Typically, that’s what everyone notices first anyway. There could be nail holes in the wood or random printed letters on the side, but as long as the pillows look great, no one will ever notice.
5. Book Shelf
It’s simple, rustic and it can be painted to suit any home decor. What’s not to love about a pallet book shelf?
6. Entry Table
This table makes a lovely first impression in the entryway, but it’s sure to get noticed no matter where it is placed.
7. Hook Board
With a few hooks, your pallet can give you some extra cabinet or closet space. Use the hooks to hang coffee mugs, as shown below, or use it for scarves, purses, belts—you name it!
This rustic rack will get all of your bottles and glasses organized. And with the right tools, this cool project will only take about an hour-and-a-half to complete.
9. Outdoor Bar
Thanks to its sleek design, this outdoor bar won’t consume your space. It will, however, give you back some room on your outdoor dining table.
