Pallets are everywhere!
My job as a supplier and international agent for a German brand of wheels and castors meant that the packaging of my goods was always done in the best quality pallets. I used to wonder initially if the pallets that we passed on to our customers ever found an economically and environmentally friendly end use.
That was also the time that I suddenly got interested in carpentry after a neighbor who was equally smitten went about creating signature pieces which I was extremely jealous about.
Now I did not want to pursue carpentry but I wanted to try my hand. So, I decided to work around with the pallets that were lying unused in the garage for a bit. I was at that time doing a blog on The 10 Best Bench Grinders for 2018 – Tested, Rated & Reviewed when I hit upon the wonderful site where they taught how to creatively use the pallets to create some of the richest looking and unique furniture.
I have tried all of them and I bet that in case you walked into my house today and realized that most of my furniture is made from pallets, you will rub your eyes and refuse to believe. They look so gorgeous!
Books resting on rustic looking shelves feel so inviting and heavenly.
