Turn Old Pallets Into New Decor

Re-purposing old furniture and scrap materials into decor items is a popular trends right now. It is both budget and environmentally friendly! Today I came across a collection of photos from across the net showcasing the use of pallets for furniture and decor items. There were some absolutely amazing ideas and I thought I would share my favorites.

Grand Design used boards from old pallets painted in four different colors to create a beautiful, unique finish to her bathroom wall. I love this mix of old meets new,   rustic meets glam. It definitely makes a unique and memorable statement.

Emily Paige Oslie showcase this gorgeous idea for a kitchen table/island made using painted pallets.  You can paint the pallets to coordinate with your existing decor  or use a contrasting color to make a bold statement like you see here with a dark table in a white room.

VectroAve had this idea – pallets turned into a simple bench area that makes great use of an empty hall space under an open stair case.  Painting the pallets to match the seat cushion, floors and walls lets the piece blend in quietly while colored accent pillows add a bold punch of color.

This pallet sofa found on Craft Britian is fantastic! I like the third version best with the tan seating, painted pallets and colorful throw pillows. This would be perfect for a family room, sun room, pool house or even out on the deck.

  1. I like the example using the boards on the bathroom wall, however wouldn’t there be a problem with the wood getting damp since it’s in the bathroom and all, especially if it gets steamy in there?
