What is a Pallet?
A pallet is a wooden platform used in warehouses for storing or shipping large materials. You can turn pallets into just about anything if you are imaginative. However, it is important to know a little bit about the pallets you are using.
Pallets can be exposed to harsh chemicals, bugs or even mould, so it is best to clean them up and determine their origin before you use them in a project. The best and safest pallets to use are the ones that come from dry goods industries, so that’s a good place to start.
Once you have your pallets, the possibilities are endless. Here are some unique ideas for pallet furniture that will inspire you:
