Upcycle This! 27 Ways to Reuse Wooden Pallets

Upcycle Wooden Planets

Question: When you think about natural resources, what first comes to mind?

For me, its trees. We owe a lot to trees. They essentially supply the necessities that drive our way of life, from paper products to infrastructures for our homes and other buildings. While a lot of these are able to be fitted for reuse after their usefulness has waned, not all of these materials can be recycled once extracted from the tree’s original form.

Wooden pallets are often used as a base for large, heavy materials. At the end of the day as I make my way home, I always see them piled up next to the garbage on the street. Its quite a sad sight to see them discarded like trash when there is such potential for a greater (re-)use! The following are a collection of creative ideas to upcycle those plain old wooden pallets into stylish furniture for every room in the house. Check it out below:
