Did you find a wood pallet that could use a little DIY love? Check out our upcycled pallet projects to turn them into something cute and usable!
Wood pallets are ubiquitous in the shipping industry, but they often don't get used many times before they're put out to pasture. It's a shame to let all of that wood go to the landfill! Luckily, there are lots of super awesome ways that you can upcycle old pallets.
If you see a stack of pallets outside of a shop, make sure you ask before you nab one. Businesses do reuse them, and if you take one that's still in use for shipping you're not really doing your best upcycling work, right? The idea is to get the most use out of these things as possible, and if you snag it before they're done with it, that means they have to buy a new one.
