How to Find New Life For Your Pallets

As durable as many pallets are, their lives do in fact have expiration dates. The beauty about pallets is that even after they can’t be used for their initial purpose they can still be repurposed into a wide range of items. Whether these born-again pallets are used around the office or at home, they can still play a vital life if you let them.

Recycling

If you don’t intend to repurpose your pallets you can always find the nearest recycling plant and recycle your pallets. If ever you’re considering throwing a pallet out, think again. The environment is going through enough as is without having to deal with a non-recycled pallet.

Stairs

Creating a staircase from pallets is a rather quick and easy endeavour that can have a major effect in a warehouse or home. Without much if any pallet alteration you can simply stack and nail each pallet to each other as you create your new staircase.

Couch/Bedframe

Creating a frame for your bed or couch is as easy as sliding a pallet under a mattress. If you’re interested in creating an impromptu couch you can simply place a few pillows on your pallets in order to create a couch as long as your warehouse or living room will allow.

Document Rack

We’re always trying to get the most out of our spaces. If you feel like your desk is mobbed with paperwork, why not create a wall rack with pallets in order to easily store your papers in an out of the way area. Repurposing your pallet in order to create such an item will take a little bit of work, but will certainly pay off in the end.

Dividers

We all know that employees are more efficient when they’re not surrounded by ten other people. To get the most out of a workforce, erect temporary pallet dividers that can be moved at will. These dividers are easy to make and will make a great addition to any company in need of a little more efficiency.
