Get crafty with your old pallets

We know that the pallets your plants are delivered on aren’t the most useful of objects to be deposited onto your front drive.. so we are sharing some crafty ideas to transform these from an awkward wooden pallet to a creative house essential!

1.Vertical Garden

Hello green-fingered friends… take the gardening a step further by using your delivery pallet as a gardening opportunity! Vertical gardens are a decorative feature in the garden that you can plant many different and beautiful shrubs in.

2. Benches & swing benches

Whether you’re seeking a romantic corner seating area with fluffy cushions and blankets, or a gentle swinging bench to perch on with a good book, a stable and versatile bench is surprisingly easy to make..

3. Bar

The warm weather is approaching (kind of), and there’s plenty of time to stock up the bar still. Get inventive with shelving, an ice draw and fairy lights to jazz the bar up.

4. Garden Pathway

Eliminate the muddy shoes running around the kitchen with mud covering pathways.

5. Pot rack

Should your cupboard door have a sign on it saying ‘open at your own risk’? It’s probably time you spread your pots out with a pot rack. They’re a great use of space and you can easily pick out the pot size you need!

6. Stools

It’s super easy to measure stool to fit different surfaces of the house. You could even make your stools with stack-able layers so the height can be modified.

7. Coffee table

You can paint and accessorise your coffee table and even add wheels for a more mobile feature (handy when hoovering!).

8. Shoe rack

Is your hallway drowning in trainers, boots and a whole lot of mud? Hide away shoes on a handy rack and leave the hallway looking spacious and clear.

9. Shelves

For inside the house or in the garden, pallet made shelves are incredibly versatile.

10. Wall art

Personalise your home with creative artwork that brightens up the room.
