What's a pen without ink?What's a man without a woman?What's a party without the booze?But most importantly.....What is a bed without a pallet nightstand?!Three months ago a big ol' pallet found its way to me. My girlfriend had always wanted a unique nightstand so I decided to make one for her. Oh... If you like this instructable please vote for me in the pallet contest.
Another pallet DIY today. We just love our reclaimed wood projects. I've been wanting Mike to make a new coffee table for our living room for a while now (yet another project on the Mike-to-make list). We recently received an email from dremelweekends.com asking if we would like to check out their…
Our kitchen is, well, so poorly designed. It has no drawers. None. Like who puts together a kitchen without drawers?! Terrible flippers, that's who.Anyway. Tired of our silverware sitting out in a plastic thing on a cart for 2+ years, and until I redesign this particular wall, I made something to hold our silverware. The great thing about this project is it can be used for all sorts of things -- plants outside, organizing stuff, tools, the list could go on.
This coffee table was Born while we were searching all over for a new table for our living room. Nothing fits in form and function. So we build our own. Made of 2 europallets. Movable on 4 heavy duty castors. The highlight is the huge storage space inside the table and the lift and the slide mechanism. On the outside, the table has many small compartments for storage. Inside is a huge storage room for games, craft, other things. You even can accommodate 3 tool boxes and stowed invisible. To open one side of the table it can be easily pushed to the side to slide it out. capacitiy in the extened state is 60kg! If the table is closed you can load more than 600kg. Here you can now work or play. Now you also have access to the stowed stuff inside the table. The other side can be easily lifted ...

Thank you for checking out my first ever instructable!The idea for this project came from a pain in my neck. I found that working for long periods of time on my laptop sitting down at a desk was causing me to adopt a very bad posture which turned to neck ache. So I decided to try and make something that would raise my laptop screen to a level that I could stare at for prolonged periods of time with no pain. I had quite a few pallets left in my Garden from a project that I attempted last year and did not finish, so I wanted to try and make use of that wood. I've been inspired by a great deal of the fantastic pallet woodworking instructables on this site, although this is the first time I've tried one. My favourite I've come across so far (and what I will ...

My wife was wanting something different and Upcycled...
A TV stand can be quite expensive for such a little furniture. While looking in a shop after a nice one to put in my house, I was thinking about all these people who did such wonderful and cheap furnitures based on pallets. But I never seen a TV stand before so I needed to try. This is my first instructable and, as a lot of people before me, I only thought of making one when it was too late. Sorry about it. So you understand why there is not a lot of photo or description in the steps to build it. You'll have to settle with the finished product. But I wanted to share it with you anyway :) Excuse me if there are some grammar mistakes too but English isn't my native language.
Easy rustic tv stand that you can make almost for free :) perfect for someone who has a 32 inch tv.
My wife was wanting a headboard for our bed. I had some used pallets I had gathered for other projects so I decided to build a headboard. I searched around the house and scraped enough material to get started. I mixed and matched pallet planks and used left over 2x4's and this turned out beautiful. I had to buy the lights of course which ran around $45. I also had to purchase the polyurethane which was about $30 for a gallon. I was unsure of how much Poly I would need so instead of buying a quart at a time for $10 I just went ahead and grabbed a gallon. The bolts to mount the bed frame to the headboard were around $4. So, the entire project ended up costing me around $100.
I wanted to have an entertainment piece that would hold all of the components we had and give storage space for movies, games, etc.... It also had to be easy to move to clean behind and to plug/unplug components or to change them out. I love pallets and I created my design using the pallets I had received textbooks on weeks before. When I was an assistant principal I received boxes and boxes of new textbooks on pallets. I asked if I could keep them and the maintenance guys were happy to not have to return to collect them. They said they threw them in the trash.....Not any more!

My wife and I moved into our new place a couple years ago knowing we would need to get a riding mower to keep up with the bigger yard. Between the riding mower and all the other stuff we discovered we'd need to keep up with the yard, we quickly lost half of the 2 car garage to yard equipment. We priced storage sheds, but ones that would be big enough to hold the mowers and be tall enough to keep me from cracking my head inside cost way too much; over $2300 for a 10'x10' shed at a local big box home improvement store.We decided to build, but even low end building materials were going to add up quickly. We had been making shelves and small furniture pieces out of pallets for a couple months and started discussing using pallets as our building material. Then, one day, something really ...

A new apartment means new furniture as cheap as possible, this story is one of a coat rack. My brother in law had some nice slabs of wood from which I could have one. The first idea about the looks was born. That was until a friend of mine sent me a picture of a pallet shelf for his special beers. The question was asked and this story got a twist. I was the proud owner of some ugly old pallet wood. The design in my head was adjusted to match the wood and two lunch breaks later the wood work was completed. I ordered nice looking nail hooks, made ugly but functional brackets and me and my girlfriend had a nice coat rack. Materials: pallet old rusty nails screws blank varnish steel, for the brackets. hooks About the Pallet coat rack: The wooden back plate is made with small ...
