25 more ways of turning pallets into unique pieces of furniture
A while ago we showed you an article called “21 ways of turning pallets into unique pieces of furniture” where we enumerated a series of original items you could create using pallets. The list was quite long but definitely not exhaustive and since we’ve received good feedback we decided to continue with a second part of the article where we present you even more unique projects you can create with the help of pallets. We tried to come up with new examples, arranged according to the type of product you can create. Shelves. 1. This is an ingenious project created by a couple that opened a wine tasting room and decided to go with a rustic look. 2. Even though shelves were created as a functional way of adding some useful storage space, they can also be used as a decorative space in the form of display shelves. 3. One place where you can never have too much storage space is the kitchen. 4. I personally find this piece very interesting. Sofas and benches 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.

How to Build a Picnic Table Out of Pallets — Ana White PDF version How to make a kid's picnic table from a pallet. Recycle what would have been trash into a very useable and cute table. Have you ever been at the point in your life when there is no extra money? Here is from Janae: I thought about taking pictures as I was going, but I was trying to work with my son's nap schedule and didn't have extra time. I found a few pallets for free on craigslist. image from Janae You can see how to build your own pallet shelves for pretty much free here. So anyway, I made this picnic table out of 2/3rds of a pallet, some scrap 2x4s I found, and one or two new 2x4s stud length. The table top is 40" long x 21.25" wide. image by Janae I just cut it at a 30 degree angle to keep it from digging into the kids lap. For the seats, a pallet frame would work, but I had two scrap pieces of 2x4s. I used the same measurements as the big kid's picnic table for the legs. I would have just sealed it, but that would have cost money.

DIY BLOG | BLOG ABOUT DIY FASHION CRAFTS AND A TRENDY LIFESTYLEDIY BLOG | BLOG ABOUT DIY FASHION CRAFTS AND A TRENDY LIFESTYLE Wood Planter Box After we built the planter box in the previous post for Stephanie, Dez was jealous and she wanted something cool like that for her own garden. So this is what she got and it’s by far one of our favorite DIY projects that we’ve done. It was actually kinda tedious, but totally worth it. After constructing the main box frame from cedar and redwood, the wood for the chevron patterns was mostly leftover pallet stock from various projects. We also used some wood from an old bed frame a neighbor gave us and since we’re revamping our bridal show booth, we didn’t need the white trim molding from that anymore, so we cut it up and used it too. Since this box is going to be the new temporary home for Dez’s avocado tree we wanted to put wheels on it so we could easily roll it around the backyard pavement. Now that you’ve seen this, be sure to check out more updates on our personal blog, and on our Zelo Photography blog…and spread the word!

Inexpensive Mini-Greenhouse - DIY Thirty years ago, I bought MOTHER EARTH NEWS to help pass the time while I was a U.S. Navy sailor stationed on an aircraft carrier. I enjoyed reading the magazine from cover to cover — often three or more times per cruise — and I couldn’t wait for the next issue. The magazine has inspired me to do many projects. Recently, I wanted to try growing in a small raised garden bed. I also made a mini-greenhouse cover for the bed so the crops could get an earlier start. Robert FordMontrose, Pennsylvania

How to Make Your Own Coldframe A coldframe—simply an enclosed area with a clear top to let in sunlight—is one of the easiest ways to extend your growing and harvest season. All you need are a few basic supplies and your imagination. (Imagine: crunchy fresh lettuce for the holidays!) Here’s what to do. Start at the Top The only essential for the frame’s cover is that light gets through. Almost any transparent material will work: glass, fiberglass, polyethylene, or flexible greenhouse coverings—the differences between them are insignificant. Many people use old window sashes. In extreme northern areas, glass isn’t always the best option. If you’re buying material to cover your coldframe, consider Lexan, an improvement over Lucite. Other gardeners prefer the corrugated fiberglass (4-by-8-foot panels) sold for greenhouse walls.
