Amazing DIY Furniture Projects

We just moved across the country and decided to sell everything so we have a whole house that needs furniture. I’d love to make some of the pieces ourselves and can’t hurt to save all that money too.

1 Pallet Playhouse.

Pallet Playhouse: Want a fun project that won’t cost much? Got kids and a decent amount of time on your hands? Try using shipping pallets and reclaimed wood to build your kids a funky playhouse. Or use it as a shed. Not only was this project fun, I also traveled a lot and met a great many very nice people who were giving perfectly good materials for little or no money. I spent $200 dollars on this project in 2008-2009. Over a hundred dollars went to paint, the rest to any building materials I couldn’t get for free. Take a look at the pictures. Spend a lot of time on your ideas and then start collecting those pallets! (via jkratman)

A Pallet Gardening Bench…I’ve never seen this something like this before (maybe it’s on pinterest, but lately it’s been crushing my creative juices so I try to stay clear)Why did I create it? Because I needed a spot of my own to do my gardening and potting. As I’ve said before, gardening isn’t my strong-suit, but when I do enjoy it and hope to get better. Spending hours on the driveway hunched over, is just not happening anymore.And why did I use pallets? BECAUSE THEY’RE FREE. how much better does FREE get… Plus I really like the size & look of pallets. Don’t you?In all, this project cost less than $10 to make and basically the money was spent on hardware.Please Click to Continue Reading… (via Jenna Burger)

50-diy-furniture-made

Pallet Hanging Chair: Very comfortable, very easy to make chair from a pallet and some paracord. I know that there are a lot of different kinds of chair instructables already, but I have never seen a chair like this before. It is so easy to make and it is comfortable because it conforms to your body. I don’t know how I came up with the idea and as I was making it I wasn’t even sure if it would work out. But it did and I am very happy with the results. So here goes- my first instructable. This instructable will show you everything I did to make the chair, but I am sure you will find ways you can customize yours to meet your needs. (via Twotim221)
