Today is a crafty post. A while back I posted an article DIY Upcycled Pallet Shelves Tutorial, which featured my very own first upcycled pallet project.
The idea of making something useful for the home from old commercial or industrial junk is nothing new but pallets in particular have seen a rise in popularity. Not only have they recently turned a pallet into a sofa on Kirsty Allsopp’s Fill Your House For Free but if you search for upcycled pallet on pinterest there are hundreds of great projects to inspire the budding thrifter.
One thing I didn’t realise until I was recently sent the Ultimate Guide to Upcycling with Pallets infographic by Terrys Fabrics was the sheer variety of pallets available. The inforgraphic also has a handy guide to how long different projects might take and how much they might cost plus some inspiring ideas for thr home and garden.
