p.s. in my shipping pallet research, I came across 2 great articles:  ”the scoop on safe shipping pallets“and “all you ever wanted to know about pallet wood” both are must reads before building your shipping pallet masterpiece!



  1. Awesome post with great info! I've been so captivated by all the things I've seen people make out of these pallettes because I see them just laying around my neighborhood all the time-someday I start picking them up : ) Did you see the cute bench Donna at Funky Junk made out of them-too cute (I think in a post last week).

  2. Great roundup! I am in LOVE with the craft shelves! Could you imagine being THAT organized. Heaven! And the pallet cave? OMG – how amazing! I want to go hang out there.

  3. Very creative! Whenever I see them, they just look ugly, but now I see there's so much more you can do!

  4. Thanks for sharing! I have a friend who owns a pallet making business and I keep bugging her to bring me pallets!!! Just sent her this link.

  5. Just in time! I have three pallets at home and I've been having the hardest time figuring out what to do with them.

  6. Great round up! Thanks for putting it together!

  7. Very inspiring! Just wanted to let you know that we found some of your content on our website, called Pinspire.de, and wanted to check that it was okay. We're a young startup from Berlin and don't want to step on anyone's toes. If you want a link e-mail me at [email protected]. Cheers!

  8. Sensational info. I look forward to seeing more.

    I love the ideas you have and want to do many of them; however, I am hearing a great deal of concern for the pesticides they are treated with. What did you do to neutralize them or is this really a concern?

  11. Where do you find free pallets?
