Cool Outdoor Pallet Bar

Today's rescue comes from Melanie of Making it in the Mitten. She loves entertaining outside during the summer, and this year she decided "we needed a space to place food and beverages while we are outside." Her husband grabbed a couple of free pallets from work, and they used them to build an outdoor bar!

Pallet-Inspired Coffee Mug Rack

Laura from My Newest Addiction kept seeing really cute coffee mug racks made from pallets, but did not love the $100+ price tag they came with. Instead, she created a version of her own! (Secret spoiler alert: you don't even need a pallet to make this!)

DIY Rustic Arrow

Scavenger Chic's Joan loves working with pallet wood so much that she started to panic as her stack of pallets dwindled. Luckily, she found three pallets leaning up against a dumpster, so she was back in business! Check out her latest pallet project.

Finding Love: a Trail Sign

Amy shared this craft at Stow & Tell U for Valentine's Day. Her version of this is definitely geared for that holiday, but this is a concept that you could adapt for any holiday or event--it would be super cute at a wedding, actually. Amy crafted her version using scraps of pallet wood.

Pallet Couches

Over at Pennies 'n Grace, Molly tells us, "When we moved into our home last August we made plans to make our huge loft into a game room/office space." In need of some inexpensive furniture, she decided to experiment with turning pallets (like the one pictured below) into couches.

Beachy Pallet Project

"My sweet and amazing husband surprised me with some pallets out in our garage," says Courtney fondly at Crafts By Courtney. "Who needs flowers when you get a pile of pallets to craft with!" Who indeed? Courtney's first project was to add a little bit of the beach to her Florida home.

Rustic Letters from a Pallet

KariAnne lives in the country, where it's pretty easy to find wood pallets during the harvest season.....or any season, actually. With pallets being so easy to come by, it should be no surprise that she's always finding new uses for pallet wood. She recently shared her latest at Thistlewood Farms.

Rustic Seashell Plank

Looking for an easy project that will bring a little bit of the beach into your home? April from House By Hoff has one that made use of things she already had around the house, so it didn't cost her a penny! Only three things were required: a collection of shells, an old board, and a hot glue gun.
