Trash to Treasure: Re-Imagining Your Waste {Pallets}

Ages ago I worked at an international freight forwarding company who primarily shipped oil and gas related goods to the Russian Far East.  I’ve seen my fair share of wood pallets from the job but I’ve never seen any used as creatively as these shown below.

{i’m beginning to realize just how cool furniture is that’s made with repurposed pallets. seriously, i would easily have this pallet shelf in my home; it’s definitely a one-of-a-kind!  find the complete instructions at design*sponge.}

{pallet shoe holder by junk+ion via recycleart. looks easy enough, i’m just not sure i’d use it for nicer shoes as i’d worry about scuffing (which could probably be easily fixed with a little design tweaking).}

{all i can say is “wow” to lori danelle’s toddler pallet bed found via recyclart. visit lori’s website for step-by-step instructions on how to make this masterpiece!}

I could easily post a dozen more images using pallets so it looks like there’ll be a part two in the future.  I have to say, I’m utterly amazed at how cool ALL of these items are!  I would have any of these pieces in my house (well, except for the house!) in a heartbeat!  If you’re handier than I am, maybe you can try your hand at making one of these creations!
