Pallets are essentially big, flat trays that support goods while they are being lifted by pallet jacks and forklifts. However, these shipping essentials can be seen not only in docks and warehouses! If you’re ready to let your creativity run wild, you can actually turn pallets into furniture for the home.

If you're looking for materials, there are online sellers offering old and new pallets. You may also want to visit nearby warehouses. The number of pallets you need would depend on what you're planning to build. Always make sure that the pallets you are getting are still in good condition. For inspiration, here are four projects that you can work on:

Bed

Plenty of DIY pallet beds feature pallets laid out as is. If you’re dubious about this kind of bed frame design, try designing your bed to look like the one shown in the photo. Not only will the bed be sturdier when done right, you can also maximize your frame and pallets by adding storage bins underneath.

Outdoor Seating

If you’re lucky enough to have a big space for a backyard or a balcony, here’s a great idea to consider for your outdoor furniture. Craft a bench that will surely give a rustic vibe to your space when set against flowers and greens. Use vibrant and comfortable mattresses and pillows to add a lively touch.
