Gallery: Build Your Own Shipping Pallet Furniture With Pallet Room’s Do...

 
The instructions are FREE to download.

After moving into his new apartment, Andrea Scandella needed to furnish the place on a budget. Scandella is studying Design & Engineering at the Polytechnic of Milan, so it was a natural extension for him to design and build his own furniture for the apartment. He lived above a market with unused pallets outside of it, so he used these readily available items as a building material.

Since pallets come in universal dimensions, pallet furniture is also universal and can be built by anyone, anywhere. Scandella translated his designs into easy-to-follow IKEA-style instructions and created a website to offer them up for free to anyone. At Pallet Room you can download plans for a stool, a chair, a table, book shelves, and even a bed. Slats from pallets are universal building blocks, but it can be daunting to figure out what to do with them – and these instructions give you a good starting point for how to put them together.
