A New Pallet Obsession

I don't think I am alone when I say that I had several pallets posing as furniture in my dorm room back in college... loved the stuff.  Several apartments and houses later, I have never forgotten about the shipping pallet's weathered charms.  The store next door to me, Two Turtle Doves, made this incredible and MOVABLE pallet shelving unit last year that I have been secretly lusting over it ever since.
Lately I have been finding several DIY projects using pallets.. making me realize that they are not just for dorm rooms any longer.  Take a look...
Ashley Ann Photography..  Bed Frames

Re-Nest.. Plate Rack

Stylizimo.. Headboard

Nordhjem.. Coffee Tables

Home Town Girl.. Shelves

Inhabitots.. Toddler Bed

Makes me want to go back to the dorms again and have a do-over.. well maybe not. Enjoy!!


  1. I've had that same crush!! Love the shares and may just have to do the one with the hanging pink paper lanterns in my hope to be new studio!!

  2. Those are all incredible ideas! Thanks for the inspiration. Someday, I hope to have a shelf like the one in the first picture. :)

  3. Excellent post! I love the coffee table idea. Thanks Valerie.

  4. This is so funny. About an hour ago, I walked out into our side garden and saw a pallet there. My husband must have brought it in with... something. Who knows what? I wondered what we could do with it and now I know! Thanks for sharing those!
