After enjoying the outdoors at BottleRock this past weekend, we were inspired to talk about outdoor decor. For those Do-It-Yourselfers, it seemed fitting to talk about a hot trending topic – pallet projects! (Especially when it comes to outdoor living.)
8 Outdoor DIY Pallet Projects
We found a never-ending list of awesome DIY pallet project ideas on Pinterest, and thought we would share our favorites with all of you.
1. Outdoor sectional sofas
Can’t afford the gorgeous outdoor sectional sofa that keeps calling your name? Try your hand at creating one yourself out of recycled pallets. Even better, take a look at this step-by-step video provided by Jose Farre via YouTube, along with some inspiration from KregTool.
2. Outdoor side tables
Your sectional wouldn’t be complete without something to set your drinks and food on while you are enjoying the great outdoors. Build an outdoor side table out of pallets to complete your lounging set.
3. Outdoor dining tables
Now that you have your lounging covered, what about dining? How about an outdoor dining table made out of pallets? Dress it up with bright colors, or tone it down with neutral stains. Keep in mind that if you are in need of a coffee table to coordinate with your lounging set, you can modify your dining table plans to make a smaller and shorter version.
4. Outdoor bars
What’s a party without a bar? If you entertain often, you may want to include a pallet bar in your DIY plans to help provide extra table space. These work especially well around BBQs!
5. Outdoor lamps and lighting
Accessories are a must!! How about adding some lighting to your outdoor dining and lounging areas? Made out of pallets, of course!
6. Pool boxes and storage benches
Organization is a must… even outside. Pool boxes are a perfect addition to your yard even if you don’t have a pool. Storage benches can do much of the same, but also provide a wonderful seating addition. A DIY pallet pool box or storage bench like these can house anything from cushions and garden accessories to tools and soil.
7. Garden paths
There is something so welcoming about a quaint path winding through your garden. Paths can be made of crushed granite, pebbles or (you guessed it) pallet boards! Check out these beautiful DIY pallet paths.
How about a fence to tie it all together? If you are in need of a dog run or a perimeter fence, this DIY pallet model could be just what you need.
Now it’s your turn.
