10 Pallet Wood Projects

Well it is no secret that we love pallet wood projects- but we aren’t the only ones that make furniture and decorations out of our pallet wood, not by a long shot!

While we are preparing another original tutorial for you (using pallet wood of course!) take a peek at some of our favorite pallet wood projects from around the web.

Before you get Started: How to Disassemble a Pallet

Before you get started with any pallet wood project you need to be able to take your pallet apart.

It is also good to know which pallets are good for which projects and where to get them!

We love this post from We Lived Happily Ever After detailing all of this and more. It is definitely step number one for any pallet wood project.

Now, here’s the 10 ideas. For kicks, we’ll start at #10 and work our way down:

#10 Pallet Wood Planter

This project doesn’t require as much disassembling as some of the other projects, as you will leave the pallet largely intact with strategic reinforcement to withstand the weight of the plants and soil.

A little bit of paint and some gardening plastic and voila! Adorable vertical planter.

See the full tutorial on Hometalk.

#9 Pallet Wood End Table

You can make this adorable end table to stick right at the armrest of your couch or the end of your bed using just a couple of boards from your pallet.

As long as you aren’t planning on standing on it, it should be just strong enough for whatever you want to set on it.

The full tutorial is on Instructables.

#8 Pallet Wood A/C Cover

If you need to cover your A/C unit to protect it from the sun, the dog, or other mischievous critters, a pallet may do just the trick.

All you need to do is cut the pallet to the right size, nail it together, and add a cute little top trim.

See the full tutorial at The Johnsons Plus Dog.

#7 Pallet Wood Garden Walkway

Give your garden a little bit of pizzaz with this super cute walkway from Funky Junk Interiors.

It is so easy you’ll be amazed-just place the boards loosely on the dirt and surround by boulders. So cute!

#6 Pallet Wood Headboard

This headboard is made from a pallet that had slats very close together.

This makes the pallet very heavy but also very sturdy and great for decorating.

Cathey from Cathey with an E decided not to take her pallet apart for the headboard, instead covering it with a pretty bird decal.

#5 Pallet Wood Crate

This super cute crate was made by Hannah over at We Lived Happily Ever After, so once you’ve used her tricks to disassemble your pallet you can make this project too!

She even added some castor wheels to the bottom for adorability and functionality.

#4 Pallet Wood Wine Rack

Well I personally can’t think of anything better to use pallet wood for than a fabulous wine rack, and this one is so cute!

Slats to keep the bottles upright and little divots to hold the glassware. You can find the full DIY at The Kurtz Corner!

#3 Pallet Wood Spice Rack

If you have hundreds of spice bottles littering your cabinets or countertops, don’t let them overwhelm you!

Check out this tutorial from Instructables to build a super cute spice rack from pallet wood. You won’t find yourself digging for the cinnamon anymore!

#2 Pallet Wood Wall Clock

This wall clock is so perfectly rustic it is almost too cute for words. The wood is weathered and worn with a plywood backing to keep it all safe and secure.

If you want to make one of these (and you should, have you seen it!?) you should check out the tutorial on Thistle Wood Farms.

#1 Pallet Wood Ceiling

Give a bedroom a warm and cozy look with a ceiling made from recycled pallet wood.

The different colors and textures of the wood make the ceiling look like a weathered barn. The process is tricky but so worthwhile- see the full tutorial over at Remodelaholic.
