Have you noticed pallet furniture is everywhere these days? Well, rightly so, pallet furniture can be amazingly simplistic and incredibly sturdy…even better, it can be a blast to create and build. This is fine and dandy for those who know how to get their hands on pallets to work with; for those of you who may be struggling to find some pallets of your own here are a few tips on tracking down pallets and the fun stuff we have done with ours so far.
- Know anyone who works at a warehouse? Contact them-they may have an ‘in’ to get you more than just a few pallets.
- Many places throw away pallets. Give a call to a local store and ask if they have some you could have.
Keep in Mind: ALL PALLETS ARE NOT MADE EQUAL!
When planning a pallet design consider the fact that all pallets are not pretty, straight and unscuffed. You may very well get a pallet that has splitting, rough wood, or even several colors of paint on it. Be thoughtful when choosing your pallets, and the projects they are intended for. At the same time-savor the wonderful excitement of getting a whole set of perfect pallets. The options are endless with these ones!
