Pallets are very much in trend these days with an estimated 2 billion pallets being used every day, and many more just lying around, no wonder there are so many projects that can be done using pallets. Everyone prefers to have at least one kind of furniture in their house made of pallets. You can make anything out of pallet if you have a creative mind; they are very useful in terms of money as well. Before you reuse pallets make sure to check that the pallet is safe to reuse, you can check out my article called Pallet Info: How To Tell If A Pallet Is Safe To Reuse to make sure that all is ok before you start your projects.

How to Build a Wood Pallet Wall

  1. What about a pallet dog house floor & ‘porch’? Using 6 pallets, I laid them in a 2 x 3 rectangle (you can nail them together, I didn’t bother). Then I had 3 pieces of thin particle board which I laid over the pallets (mine happened to fit perfectly, covering 2 pallets at a time, so again, 3 wide. The small spaces between allowed for some kind of water drainage.). I placed the dog house (a recycled shipping crate which happened to be just about the size of a pallet) on a middle pallet (whichever will be toward the back of the dog house), with the dog house door facing the other middle pallet. This gave the dog a place to stay off the ground when it rained or snowed, plus the days after when the ground was sodden. Dog now had a ‘porch’ in front, plus on each side. He could view ‘his kingdom’ without a muddy mess when he came inside.
