If you like the natural, rustic look in your home and want to make furniture and home accessories to suit, then look no further: this comprehensive, step-by-step guide tells you all you need to know to make a range of stunning pieces for inside and out using wood sourced from pallets.
Pallet wood is versatile, great to work with, readily available, doesn’t break the bank and lends itself to a myriad of projects. The 20 projects within this book are achievable for complete DIY novices – all that’s required is a few basic tools, some pallet wood and a bit of free time to work through the steps. You’ll be amazed at what you can create from so few materials in such little time.
The stylish projects include a corner sofa for the garden, a boot rack, a coffee table, children’s teepee, bed headboard, mirror, dog bed and decorative star. Concise step-by-step instructions and clear photographs guide you from start to finish. There’s also plenty of advice on sourcing pallet wood, including for free, instructions on how to dismantle pallets safely and easily, plus a tools and other materials section to make sure you have everything you need to hand. It couldn’t be simpler!
