Have you ever seen a burn pile containing material that could have easily been reused/recycled? Wooden pallets are often discarded after showing wear, but there are creative projects that involve pallets as the main material!!


However, before reusing a pallet, it's always good to be aware of its origin. Wood is very porous, making it able to absorb any hazardous chemical that it was exposed to. So keep in mind how the pallet was used before embarking on a refurbishment project.


If you determine that the pallet is safe for reuse, here are some fun ideas for you:


  • Pallet Center Table- Are you in need of a rustic center table? Pallets can be a great solution! Pallet as center piece
  • Plant Holder- Pallets can also be used for holding plants and enhancing gardens. pallet as plant holder
  • Decoration- If you love to paint, how about a wooden canvas?!painting pallets

These ideas, and many more, are great ways to turn what could be trash into something worth keeping.
