If you're handy with a screwdriver and a saw (or even if you're not), we've got a roundup of sweet upcycled furniture you can make yourself out of old shipping pallets
. Shipping pallets are plentiful and readily available - often for free - and though most businesses do their best to reuse them, many still end up in landfills. Pallets easily convert into sofas
and even beds
, so read on for our favorite creations you can make yourself from these inexpensive materials.
These colorful Fold-out Pallet Chairs from Gas & Air Studios are each made from a single shipping pallet. The only treatment these chairs get is a color strip, and they’re available in 14 different colors. You could easily create your own version at home too.
Modernist and elegant, this black sofa by France-based Studio-aparte is a multi-functional piece of furniture. It accommodates up to 2 people and has 2 handy mini-tables that tuck under the end of the sofa.
