Upcycling Inspiration: Wooden Pallets DIY

Pinterest is one of our favourite websites to browse for DIY and upcycling inspiration. It’s always awash with upcycling and DIY projects and we often find ourselves lost in the plethora of amazing ideas to make our homes prettier. One thing which caught our eye on several occasions was the great range of DIY projects you can do with wooden pallets! You know, the type you see supermarkets getting deliveries on? They can be upcycled in a range of beautiful ways to add functional features to your home.

Preloved’s Favourite Wooden Pallet DIY Projects

Wooden Pallet Coffee Table

We absolutely love this wooden pallet coffee table idea! Adding the glass top adds an extra level of chic, whilst also exposing the rustic finish of the wood itself. Adding wheels also makes the table practical and easy to mix around the layout of your living room quickly and easily.

Wooden Pallet Indoor Sofa

Sofa’s made from wooden pallet’s are really popular and it’s definitely one of our favourites! You can find plenty of tutorials online and it’s a great way to make customised, verstile seating for any room. You can even craft the cushions in a range of colours to suit your decor.

Wooden Pallet Outdoor Seating

There’s nothing like having a nice relax outside when the sun starts shining. With your very own upcycled wooden pallet garden furniture it can be even more satisfying. Paint them bright colours or leave the aged wood effect – it’s up to you how much of a centre piece to your summer garden parties you’d like it to be!

Wooden Pallet Shelves

Finally, if you’re after a shabby chic storage solution for any room then upcycling some wooden pallets in to shelves is the ideal solution. Perfect for showcasing family photographs or displaying your bathroom essentials, we love the dark wood effect left on the ones pictured.
