The BEST DIY Wood Pallet Ideas!

Pallet Wood Projects

We love a good DIY project – not only is it nice to learn new skills, but you also have a creative piece that you made yourself! Using pallets is a fantastic way to recycle.

Of all the budget garden ideas, yard and home projects out there, using pallets is one of the biggest trends. Plus, they’re easy to find and you’re sure to find a project which fits any skill level.

Pallet Tips

Here are some tips before you dive into these wood pallet projects:

You can get free pallets from:

  • Facebook’s Marketplace. Make sure to check Facebook Marketplace (or Craigslist) daily. Lot of the time people just put them on the curb for free for you to pick up.
  • Local Businesses and Stores.  You will see them sitting out back of stores, but always ask the manager before you take them. The best stores are Home Depot, Lowes, Garden centers, etc…
  • New Businesses. If you hear of a new business is opening in your area, contact them about any extra pallets they might have.

If you can’t find any free wood pallets, you can buy them for a cheap cost (usually about 10 bucks).

    The remodeled room is amazing! The decoration of the room was beautiful, especially the bunch of flowers.

  6. Nice DIY recycled pallets projects. I have other project idea. I will use it as frame to my indoor koi pond and bin culture for my black soldier fly

  7. Lillian Schaeffer

    Thanks for sharing these! I love these pallet ideas, and I especially love the planter boxes. I’ve been wanting to add some elements to my landscape, and having some big plants on my porch is something I’ve been looking into. I love the dark color and grain of the wood, so I’ll definitely look into making some planter boxes using pallets.

  8. Suzanne Deuster

    The crates with the lighting are just beautiful! It has 12 crates total stacked up. What size crates are those and what kind of lighting was used?

  9. Ariana Goldberg

    Love some of these ideas. I love finding new ways I can use those free pallets!! Thanks for sharing a great post with us all. xoxo Ari xoxo

  10. Mickey Kogutz

    I am looking for the tree vector image that is on your pallet coffee table. I have a silhouette and she wants this for her new apt in North Carolina. Any help would be appreciated.

  11. Absolutely Love The Shoe Rack w/ Book Bag Holder.. I’ve started to make it I hope it turns out as nice as your.. I didn’t see plans so I’m trying to do it by the picture.. Wish me luck!!

  12. I LOVE SO MANY of your projects!! We might start out with the fire pit then who knows what’s next, too many awesome things to pick from!!☺

  13. How do I the trash bin cabinet. I tired to find blueprints but was unable to find them. I love your ideas but I want to make them my reality as well. Tips tricks of any kind would be great

  14. Raelene Brinkman

    These are very good and interesting. Where can I get instructions on how to make them.Raelene

  15. Debbie Ferger

    These ideas are amazing. The best part is they look fairly easy to do but make a big impact in a room! Thanks!!

  16. frankie Angelo

    The sign re the butterfly I love; My girlfrie4nd just lost her daughter and I want to show her this – Her daughtger loved butterfies so it is so fitting.

    1. william smith

      It takes about 8 full-sized pallets, depending on how tall you want to make it and how long you want it to be.

  17. Peggy A Fennell

    I love the Beds and the bar for outside. Where can I get instructions on how to make them.

  18. Toni Frothingham

    Where can we find/ buy the pallet bunk beds ? I clicked on the links and unfortunately are in another language.
    Thank you in advance.

    1. What about some old Shutters doors from a closet any ideas before I throw out. yhanks

    2. We made bookcases for our granddaughter, out of ours. I’ll post them on my blog, my email is down for some reason. 🙁

    3. Deborah Hogen

      Use them as room dividers or privacy screens for guests. I got two way hinges and then painted them up and they fold flat and store in a skinny place in the house or under a bed. Pull them out when you pull the hide abed couch out into a bed and set them up to create some private space. I have also used them to hide my craft mess when I don’t have time to clean up the studio. Don’t toss them, give them to Re-Store!
