Another great suggestion to use pallets in your decor is to put the useful together. In this case, the use of pallets as the furniture makes helpful recycled material and pleasant for any environment. There are endless possibilities of using pallets as furniture, some of them are more complex and others much more straightforward. Here are some options and suggestions on how to do:
Shelves or panels
The pallets can be used on the wall as a panel shape for the TV or even as a bookcase for the living room. In the first case, the panel is the easiest way to use the pallet, since it can be done in two ways: modular or per board. If the group is modular, it is only necessary to fix the modules to the wall side by side. But if the board makes it, the pallet module should be undone and used board per board to compose the panel. The fastening of the two forms must be done with screws.
In the case of the shelf, the project will be more labor intensive. In this case, we recommend professional help to make the furniture.
The tables are among the most comfortable furniture to be made with pallets. Through the modules, it is possible to position them one on top of the other up to the desired height. Screws should also do fastening.
In this type of project, it is possible to include accessories such as glass for the surface of the table. The finish can be done in varnish or through colored paint. Among the models, it is possible to make a coffee table, corner, and even a dining table
To build a pallet bed, you will need several modules and screws for fixing. After measuring the size required for the bed, the pallet modules should be attached one by one, so they do not move. The finish can be done in various ways, varnish, paint, or in the rustic effect without any finishing. The design can still be complemented with a headboard and a set of lights at the base of the bed.
For those who want to invest in a wall or lining of wood, the pallet is a cheap and very usual option. It is possible to combine all types of finishes with this option to be used on the wall or as a lining.
The use of the pallet on the wall is done as if it were a panel. In this case, it is possible to use the entire module or even the inserted boards one by one. If the wall is filled through the module already ready, the wall will have cracks between the woods, which will allow passing lights inside the panel. But if the panel is made with the boards, the finish will be more sophisticated and proportional.
