It has been a while since there was a post here about a DIY upcycle design project. There is a nice category on upcycleDZINE with great DIY projects. One a little more difficult then the other, but they are all doable. Last year in October I was in need of some lamp standards for my stand at the Woonbeurs in Amsterdam. I wanted them to be upcycled and made out of reclaimed wood. So after some drawings I came up with the idea to make them out of used pallets.
And as you all know used pallets are a real hype for some time now. There are so many fantastic and creative upcycle design ideas to be found on the web made out of old pallet wood.
Very functional Coffee table
Just like pallet wood ideas, there are also a lot of coffee table ideas. Last week I came across an upcycle design idea that’s a combination of using pallet wood and creating a cool looking coffee table. I found the idea on 1001 Pallets, it’s a DIY project with a photo tutorial that shows you exactly what to do and what kind of materials and tools you need.
This coffee table is quite amazing in its simplicity and functionality. Add a few pieces of pallet wood to another pallet, give it a good finish and by adding a few feet you’ll find yourself having an amazing coffee table.
