I love wooden pallets. They are so versatile, which makes them a staple in DIY home improvement. And sofas and beds are not the only thing you can make with them.
Today, however, I want to talk about outdoor furniture. One of the things that comes to mind is that outdoor furniture can easily get damaged. So, while some people buy expensive sofas, I love to stick to the basic, inexpensive sofas.
Yes, I always recommend investing in quality. But when it comes to outdoor sofas, wooden pallets provide the price and quality you want. Here are some ideas how to utilize pallets for your patio or home. The motto “affordable and easy to make” definitely fits these projects.
Let’s start with something simple and easy. This bed is great addition to your patio, and the best part is that you can use it for seating as well as taking a nap. Daybeds are an essential part of the patio. After all, we all want to take a nap every now and then!
When you look at these furniture pieces, you’d think they were store-bought. After all, they are very close to, if not on the same level with, store-quality furniture pieces. And that’s why I love wooden pallets. You can choose a different color if you don’t want the dramatic black look.
DIY within the DIY project, as Xzibit would put it back in the days of his MTV show. But going back to the project, this mobile sofa is great, as you can move it around as needed. And the PVC pipes are another “ingredient” to DIY projects that are versatile. They provide comfort as well as a few style points.
Some people want to make their sofas visually appealing. Others opt for simplicity and comfort. If you are in the latter group, this simple design will be good enough for you. Just put some pillows on the wooden pallets, and you have yourself a sofa.
Another mobile sofa. The difference is this one is simpler. Yes, the design might not be something to die for. But you cannot argue the fact that the sofa is practical and versatile. It all comes down to what you prefer and what you need.
There are many options for armrests (we recently had a PVC pipe armrest). In this case, we stick to the same design as the sofa—wood. I also love the small ottoman for resting your feet/legs. It really adds to the comfort you want to achieve.
I said multiple times that pallet sofas are versatile. Wood can be painted in any color and modified to suit all your needs, so you can use it in the children’s room as well. And don’t worry—it’s safe and secure. You just need to paint it in some vibrant and cheerful colors.
The mobile couch can be used inside the home as well. And it can be even more practical for a guest room. Or any time you need to move the sofa around the house.
Let’s get back to the basics for a moment. I love how this sofa is closed, so that it doesn’t look like it’s made from pallets. And I also love the table space for coffee and magazines. A complete patio setting made from wooden pallets!
Sectional couches have been a big trend in the past few years. So it’s only logical that we have one made from pallets. You’ll need three sets of pallets for this couch. The advantage is that you can place it in the corner and save precious space in the room.
I like to think of this seat as my personal reading and drinking coffee spot. And the best part is you can use wooden pallets to make both the sofa and the table. Definitely something that’s worth having in your home.
Every furniture piece you create from wooden pallets comes with storage space. It’s just your personal decision whether you want to close it or leave it open. If you leave the space open, you can definitely find something to store there. In most cases, people store magazines and books.
This project will require a bit of handiwork, as it isn’t simple. Unlike other projects, you actually have to work with the wooden pallets. But the chair sofa you get is awesome. The best part is you can paint it and decorate it any way you like.
I said previously that some people choose to close the storage space, but that doesn’t mean you can’t store things inside. You can still use it for shelves; just pull the shelves out any time you need something. This way, guests won’t see what you have inside.
For that rustic feeling, mix several different pallets. Or just paint the wood pieces in different colors. That playfulness is what makes this sofa beautiful and perfect. Play with colors, shapes, and sizes of the wooden pieces for a more interesting piece of furniture.
We had the same sectional sofa inside the home. But we can use the same idea for the outside as well. Truth be told, you have much more space to operate with outside (which is why I don’t recommend a sectional sofa for the patio). However, the advantage is that you and your guests are closer to each other.
Another upholstered sofa, with the difference that this is a sectional sofa. Personally, as I’ve said previously, I prefer a sofa and a love seat or chair. But there are those who prefer the sectional sofa and all the benefits it brings.
We finish off with a complete patio setting made from pallets. The L-shaped sofa is enriched with a small chair. The tables and the rustic look definitely bring warmth and tradition to the patio.
That’s all for today. If you have any ideas you would like to share with us, let us know.
