Pallets are easy to find (just check out your local garden supply store) and even easier to repurpose! With a few nails and a can of paint, these wooden crates can be turned into beautiful wall art, bookshelves and even bed frames.

Safety Note: Before you fall in love with a pallet project, be aware that there can be some serious health and safety concerns associated with using pallets in the home. If you’re going to join the pallet trend, learn how to mitigate potential issues.

  1. Vertical garden. If you’re short on space, grow flowers on a repurposed pallet. All you need is an old pallet, screws, clamps and pots. Learn how to make a pallet garden in seven easy steps.
  2. Display photos. Tack up your pallets and then use them as shelves. You can display framed artbooks and any other knick-knack you deem living room worthy.
  3. Furniture. From a shabby chic headboard to a modern coffee table, pallets are popping up all over the interior design-o-sphere. If you aren’t really into the idea of a pallet as a headboard, check out this easy headboard upholstery option.
  4. Wall art. If you can’t find (or don’t want to shell out the dough for) a large art piece, repurpose an old pallet! You can choose your colors, words and patterns. Just grab some paint, a few brushes and let your creative juices flow.
  5. Animal bed. Instead of your pet snoozing on a large, unsightly cushion, incorporate their bed into your décor with pallets. Tip: Sand down the sharp edges!
