Easy and Cute DIY Outdoor Pallet Furniture


DIY colorful furniture for the balcony

I have recently moved to a new apartment and it was time to decorate my new house. Since I enjoy and love more the things I do my self I decided to create my unique outdoor furniture. An easy and inexpensive way of course is by using pallets. So in only one day I had my bench and coffee table for the balcony ready. It was super easy and fun! I realized that creating furniture by your self isn’t only a man’s job.

What you’ll need:

2 euro pallets for a 80x120cm coffee table, but I preferred a smaller one so I cut the two euro pallets almost in half, into 120x56cm for the bottom part of my coffee table and into 65x56cm for the upper part. I didn’t stack the two parts of the coffee table, just placed the small part over the larger. This way I can have two coffee tables 🙂

For the bench I used larger pallet and I cut it to make 146x42cm but when I placed the cushions I realized It should be widest but it was too late…

I sanded them enough to get rid of the splinters and smoothed it out enough to paint, then I coated the surface with primer and when it got dry I applied the painting and over it the varnish.

So in just 4 hours I created an armchair but this time with the help of a man.

    Very nice work. And of course it is not (only) a man’s job. Actually, I don’t think a man would have thought of some of the colours.
    Great job. I’ll call you when I need a new coffee table! 🙂
    Take care

        I will. The advantage is that the material is cheap. Your “savoir-faire” should be charged high. 🙂

          I never charge my advice to friends 😉
