Making pieces for your own home is a rewarding experience. When you create items for your home by hand, you get to enjoy the pride and pleasure of your handwork every day. What better way to put your creative ideas into practice, be the envy of all your house guests, and make something that may have cost you hundreds of dollars at a boutique shop.
In recent years, DIY pallet projects have been a trendy way to do just that. This multi-functional, upcycled item can be painted, stained, sanded, cut, or shaped, which makes the pallet a particularly useful medium for home décor projects. Available for cheap at most home improvement stores or even for free at some local businesses, pallets have become the DIY building material du jour. (Just keep in mind that used pallets may need some TLC before you transform them into your next amazing piece.) Here are some fun and unique ideas to get you started on your very own DIY pallet projects.
