Pallet furniture - Outdoor lounge & coffee table

B256C07C-2937-4CBD-9DDC-B2A17EFC93EF.jpegOutdoor Pallet Furniture - Corner Lounge and Coffee Table

 

I made this some time ago using pallets.

 

It’s so rewarding to see the look on people’s faces when they realised they are sitting on furniture you’ve mate made using throw-away pallets.

 

The cushions were store bought, and the coffee table now has a glass top on it.

 

If you would like some ideas or tips on how to make your own pallet furniture, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Hello, I am looking to make something super similar. Could you please tell me how many pallets you used & where you bought the cushions from?

Thank you! :laugh:

Re: Pallet furniture - Outdoor lounge & coffee table

Hi Becca, 

 

Thanks for your question and welcome to Workshop. When I built these I was lucky enough to have an unlimited supply of pallets so I used 2 pallets for the bottom that I simply screwed together, and 1 that I cut down for the back, so I total of 3 pallets every 1.2m section. I didn’t screw then together to make them easy to move and more modular. The corner needed 2 backs therefore I used 4 pallets for that. 

 

At the time Bunnings we’re not selling cushions so if I was making this project again I would have gone to Bunnings. However I purchased my cushions from Rob Cousins outdoor furniture which has since closed down. 

 

Hope this helps. 

 

-Adam
