126 Pallet DIY Project Ideas
71) DIY Pallet Swingers
We can bet that those of you who have been hunting for unique pallet ideas are already familiar with the notorious pallet swingers.
Just like Corinne Leigh wittily points out at the very beginning of the video tutorial we are sharing below, the DIY pallet swinger is a Pinterest legend, and we can’t agree more.
But there is a solid reason for the fame which swingers made out of wooden pallets have gained, and that’s the simplicity of the build.
Thus, apart from the beautiful and practical design, anyone can enjoy the making process of a pallet swinger, with or without sufficient experience as a DIYer.
72) DIY Pallet Wood Frame
Living in the era of social medializing, pictures have made their way straight into our daily lives more than ever before.
However, the charm of framed photos and pictures is nothing less than a cult classic. For all the picture frame lovers out there, we are listing this beautiful DIY pallet wood frame idea.
We love this project because the video tutorial is easy-to-digest, and guides you through all the essential steps of the building process excellently.
But above all, we love the end result, as this DIY pallet wood frame appears to be made very exquisitely, and even complexly, while the truth is, the design is fairly easy and wonderful even for the novice DIYers.
Sprinkle the design of this pallet wood frame with some of your own imagination, and this can become a perfect gift for any occasion.
73) DIY Modern Pallet Bed
Keeping in mind the price range of a decent bed in the stores, it is sure no wonder why so many of us prefer to opt for a homemade pallet version.
And even though there are numerous options available, we fell in love with this DIY modern pallet bed, which will cost you as little as $100. It is made out of 8 EUR pallets.
We think this project is suitable for DIYers of all levels of experience. Nevertheless, we were impressed with the smart tips and easy-to-follow steps provided in the video tutorial we are sharing below.
With the careful and precise sanding of the pallets, this bed will turn into an extremely comfortable one.
74) The Cutest DIY Pallet Couch
We believe this DIY pallet couch does deserve to be called the cutest one, or at least it became one of the cutest pallet ideas we stumbled across.
We like this design for a several reasons, starting with the fact that the total cost of the build are approximately $70.
Next, we like that the video tutorial also features the making of the pillows for the couch.
We also find the assembling a very easy one, so we recommend that beginner DIYers don’t turn a back around to this particular project.
Just one tiny concern we have is that the fabric of the pillows will stretch over time, so using a staple gun to fix it is a much better option.
75) Step-by-Step Pallet Sofa
As we are riding the wave of DIY wooden pallets sofa ideas, we decided to share this wonderful option for a step-by-step pallet sofa, which also includes a manual.
It is made out of 10 pallets, which have been perfectly sanded and prepped for the assembly.
When it comes to the building costs, these will highly depend on whether you’ll opt for store-bought pallets or you will be able to lay your hands on reclaimed ones.
However, we don’t think this is the most suitable project for first-timers. Even though the design is fairly simplistic, it does require some previous experience working with wood in order to be able to recreate this yourself.
76) Compact Pallet Sofa
Just like the name suggests, we adore this compact pallet sofa for its practical design and dimensions, which can make a good fit to just about any outdoor garden.
Each step of the building process is shown very precisely.
Thus, even though there are no English subtitles to the video tutorial we are sharing below, we all agree that even beginner DIYers will be able to copy this design with no issues. Plus, the process of making the stylish pillows for this pallet sofa is also featured.
With that in mind, we highly recommend that you don’t skip on checking out pallet wood projects which are not listed in English. It is amazing how many ideas you can get by a simple video tutorial, so long live the era of Internet and open communications.
77) DIY Pallet Lounge

78) DIY Pallet Workbench
As DIYers, we know that having a comfortable and reliable workbench is of utmost importance.
Keeping this in mind, we knew that our compilation of wood pallet ideas couldn’t possibly go without the inclusion of a wonderful DIY pallet workbench.
Personally, I love the fact that the accent of constructing this workbench is put on the durability of the end product.
Furthermore, I find it very helpful and practical that you can also store your instruments in the added compartments.
The tools you will need to accomplish this project include an electric chop saw (or a hand saw), cordless drills, screws, a clap, tape measure, pencils, electric sander (or sand paper), and some glue.
We’d rate this particular build as a suitable one for those who have some prior woodworking experience, though.
79) Modular Pallet Workbench
If your workshop space is limited, a modular workbench can be an excellent option for your needs.
That’s why we decided to include this modular pallet workbench as part of our list of DIY pallet ideas.
We find it relatively easy to build. Furthermore, we think the very idea behind the design of this particular workbench deserves admirations.
It is crafty, simple but also durable; combined with the compact dimensions and the modularity of this project, we think many DIYers will want to have one of these handy.
After all, being a woodworking aficionado inevitably faces you with the need to organize your space and tools, so this is a very clever alternative.
80) Pallet Cabinet with a Door
A cabinet is one of those tiny but extremely smart furniture ideas which can save you space and put order in your life as a DIYer.
Nevertheless, cabinets are very versatile.
The tools used for this particular build are a chop saw (but a hand saw can also work fine), cordless screw drivers, screws, tape measure, glue, set square, and drill bits.
We also like that this pallet cabinet with a door can be customized into the dimensions which will work best for you. This is a simple and easy DIY project which is suitable for the novice DIYers, too.
Personally, I adopted this model into a tiny version which can easily fit in the palm of one’s hand. Then I added an old chain and hang my mini cabinets in my garden during a dinner party. It turned out fantastic.
