So the neighbour said she liked the look of the pallet chair I made recently but would like one with arms. It’s her birthday tomorrow, so tried to pull out all the stops. Very pleased with the end result as there were several times during its construction that this chair was going to look VERY different!
Who would have thoughts making these humble boxes would have been sooo satisfying. I’m not sure whether it’s the simplicity of the shape, or the contrast of the colours or some other factor I’ve yet to discover. With so many seeds coming on and in need of bigger pots, these pallet boxes turned out to be perfect for the job. Not doubt there will be countless other uses for them as the season roles on too.
I find most of the pallet furniture I’ve made has required a lot of improvisation, and chin rubbing! This one was no different and took some time before it came together properly. I have to say, it’s by far the best piece I’ve done to date. The thought arose when looking at my garden chairs and their X design and that got me finkin!
This chunky pallet table and bench set was a lot of fun to make. I took my original inspiration from a the picnic bench in my yard and had originally planned to make something similar. The table took a lot of jiggerypokery to get all the angles right but has ended up a solid piece of furnature that I’m really pleased with. I especially like the dark and light stripes of wood in the table top.
As I started to build the seating, it became clear that they were going to be way too heavy for the table, so aborted that idea and turned them into benches instead. They are a new design for me, made from 2 pallets each.
I have 100 or so little lettuce seedlings coming through right now and I’m imagining what this raised pallet planter is going to look like when they’re in full bloom… will save my back too!! Ooooooo 😉
When the brambles get too much and you’re on a budget, a pallet fence is a great solution to protect the allotment..
And when there is no mallet or sledgehammer in sight, one is forced to improvise!
The sun comes up from the East and sets in the West, so which way should I face the pallet swing?? This swing has the best of both worlds and is fab of intimate conversations about the size of each others vegetables!
A larger version of the spice rack, this shelving unit is a lovely way to store items I like to have at hand. It looks great with plants hanging from it and in the evenings with candles lit.
I am so pleased with this pallet bench! It’s smaller than most, lightweight and I think it looks great. It’s also held together with just 2 nails holding the thin wooden strip down the middle of the bench between the seat and the backrest. No idea how that works!
Probably our most used item of pallet furniture, this pallet bench takes pride of place at the top of the garden looking down over the vegetable patch. A great place to take a break, planning our next project and putting the world to rights!
