    I didn't realize just how popular, Beth! They remind me of the wood crates that were around so much when I was growing up. They wound up being used for so many different things, too, and had a similar construction {except smaller in size}.

    I am blown away with the creativity of people. Can you believe all the ideas?! WOW! I am excited to create my own. Thank you so much for sharing. Very Chic & Unique!

    Love all the great ideas that can be made with pallets. I love the planter and the tomato garden and I might just try the planter. JB

    What a fabulous blog! I love the ideas….will send my husband out the door NOW to bring some home…. I like the special nooks….glass over the tops…they are so unique! Thanks for all the work…and for sharing it with us!

    Oh my gosh, I'm so in love with these pallets. Wish I could do some of these projects! Of course I would have to find a pallet, and talk my husband into making something for me! So creative.

    Beautiful inspiration pics! My SIL had her wedding up at the cottage and hubs and FIL built her dance floor out of pallets. I wish I had a pic. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm hosting my monthly Before Blogging Throwback Thursdays party tomorrow and would love for you to share one of your projects from before blogging. Can't wait to see what you bring to the party.

    Hi Beth-

    What great ideas – many of them are so do-able. I would love to have a pallet table on wheels. Thanks for gathering such wonderful inspiration. I will be looking at pallets in a new way now.

    My best- Diane

    So I had a dishwasher delivered today and I asked the delivery guy to take the pallet and he told me it was all mine………I am glad now because I have an idea! Thx Beth!

  11. I Dream of Diapers says

    I think my favorites are the toy boxes (I see a project on the horizon!), the toddler bed (I'll be needing one of those soon!), the wall coverings and the headboard with "love" written on it. Hmmm… apparently I like them all! My husband was just oggling some pallets discarded behind the local nursery the other day. I should have let him grab them!

    This was fun to look at. I can't believe how creative people are with pallets!

    Warmly, Michelle

  16. JHill says

    I have been trying to convince my husband that I want to make a patio table out of pallets but everybody seems to think I am crazy.

  17. The enchanted home says

    This is the best post I have seen yet for do justice to them…I love them for beds..especially for a boys room but didnt' realize they had so many other great uses…fabulous looking and beautiful examples!

  18. Chelsy@ Sweet Pea Kisses says

    Oh my my! So much inspiration! My hubby says he has a whole stack of them at work to bring home to me! I can't wait to do something with them! Idk where to start? Thanks for sharing:)

  19. Melissa Miller says

    Wow, those are really neat ideas Beth. Love the happy red chairs.

    Hsppy Easter to you and your family! ~Melissa

  20. GinaE says

    Great ideas here, Beth! The dish rack and shallow book shelve, great ideas. The only thing I can't get behind is the antlers as a jewelry hanger…yuck!!!!

  21. Kim says

    You read my mind! Ha Ha I just did almost this EXACT same post with the exact same photos to by posted next week! I made a pallet headboard for my son last week and I have pallets on the brain! Ha ha

  22. Carrie says

    holy cow I think my mind just got blown about 10 times! So many incredible ideas. Man! I love that human beings are capable of such amazing creations :)

  23. kelly says

    those are so fabulous!!! have you heard that they are treated with chemicals like termite treatments? i don't want to bring something bad into my house. do you seal it with something? just wondering, i really want to do something sometime!
    also do you just pick them up behind stores? i never know if they are for the taking or not:)

  24. Jacqueline says

    I love pallets! I made a sofa table out of pallets and old kitchen legs a while ago, also have a cube shelf I haven't posted yet that came from pallets! Love all the pictures you shared!

  25. Jen @ says

    Great pictures!!! I love pallets. I saw a pallet coffee table in a magazine ten years ago and have been thinking about it ever since. One of these days I'm going to make something with them. So fun!!!!


  26. TidyMom says

    I've totally been in love with all these pallet ideas/projects!!

    you found some fabulous ideas!!!

    Hoppy Easter!!

  27. Mimi says

    Thanks so much for your post! There are some pallets that have been sitting on the corner near my house and I can't talk my husband into picking them up. So now I have something to show him why!

  28. Reba says

    I love these ideas. We are making tables out of them too. You also can take the wood spool you get for big cables and cut the bottom off and put an umbrella and have an outdoor table. Just make sure you put a sealant on it to keep it looking great.

  29. Christine Mccombs says

    Lots of great ideas! Just remember to check and see if they’ve been treated. You don’t want that in your house! Great for outside things.

    Hi Beth!

    First, love the post, I am inspired to create some sweet pallety things myself. My problem comes from not being able to find any pallets to work with. Does anyone have some recommendations on where I could buy some? I called a few stores, but no one carries them thus far. I live in Birmingham, AL.


  31. karen says

    cool! thanks. but you should NEVER USE CHEMICALLY TREATED ones for the garden. It leaches right into your food. yuck!
