Re: Pallet DIY Projects

@Jackson - this looks awesome!! Were the pallets pulled apart to make it or just joined together as is? 

 

I managed to pick up some pallets last night, so I look forward to sharing what I turn them into shortly.

Re: Pallet DIY Projects

Back of Bunnings and similar stores is usually a good place to find pallets. Just dont take the coloured/branded ones as they get reused so you'll get done for theft :cheeky:

 

Otherwise just general industrial areas will usually leave them on side of road or at least in their big bins so you can nab a few from there @kaylah_rose

Re: Pallet DIY Projects

There are lots of houses in our area at the moment being built or renovated. So lots of pallets lying around and being thrown in dumpsters. I like the idea of turning them into something useful.

Love that sliding door! I've made storage boxes and a dining table (frame and legs from pallet, top from old door) and a tv / hall stand as well. This is what that turned out like:

Re: Pallet DIY Projects

I check Gumtree out daily for free stuff or bargains and pallets are advertised for free regularly - so don't spend your hard earned dollars on them when you can get them for free.
