Very often they are left by the delivery company or you come across them at the most unexpected places. Well, you appreciated what a valuable item they can be, and how they can be used in different situations. All that is usually required is a little imagination, possibly a lick of color or lacquer and some simple tools. If you need some inspiration on what can be done with this often wasted item, read on.

Things you can do with your wooden pallets

Wooden pallets are usually not made of high quality wood, but they can be reused in a variety of ways and save you some bobs and give you a sense of pride in your own piece of recycling work. Even if you do not have any pallets around, you can find a local company that is just so happy to share with its pile of unwanted pallets and can even offer you some money to do so. A warning sign, if you will use the wooden pallets for an external project, you would be wise to treat the wood with some kind of protection.

Instead of throwing away your wooden pallets, use them as an attractive coffee table, shelves, cabinets, chairs, sofa and bed bases and many other furniture for your home. Outside, they can be used as deck, garden furniture also a rocking chair. All that is required is some nails and a hammer and possibly one saw. The tree bottom can be taken apart and mounted or used just as they are. However, you must be careful, as these pallets are sometimes treated with harmful chemicals. It is wise to check where your wooden pallet has come from and what it was used for. Always wash thoroughly with soap water and allow it to dry thoroughly before using it in your home. If you are unsure of its origin you would be wise to seal the wood with varnish or paint.
