My husband runs a print factory and as such, we have a heck of a lot of pallets lying around that the paper is delivered on. Currently we pay someone to take these away and recycle them but I was wondering if you (or any of your awesome readers) had any ideas of ways I could turn them into cool and functional pieces of furniture for our home? I'd love it if I could make something from this by-product of my husbands trade.
Ooh! Ooh! I got it! Did you know there's a whole group of projects out there called Pallet Crafts? TRUTH. Readymade magazine features a couple projects a year. On my docket for this summer: building a set of patio furniture using these plans. They cost ten pounds a piece to download, but there are free chair plans out there, too. And oh, hello, palette compost bin!
What else you got, Homies? Art? A display rack? How would you use free palettes?
