If you need an idea for repurposing a pallet, look no further than Becky from Beyond the Picket Fence. She has a section of her blog devoted to all her cool pallet upcycles. For this particular project, she cut the pallet in half, leaving the edge and middle boards to form the top for a bench.
She added additional boards for support and legs and then used the remaining slats from the pallet to form a patchwork top. I love how Becky played into the patched look with her painting too. How fun!
