I haven’t posted a project in quite a while. But I’ve been real busy this summer and thought this set deserved to be seen. I’ve seen and heard some about people using pallets to build with and the wife saw some yard furniture on pinterest made from pallets. So we went and hunted up a bunch of old pallets and here’s what I come up with. Pic #1 is the main set, love seat, table and 2 chairs. Basically, just cut down pallets bolted together to form the furniture with old 2×4 fillers. Pic #2 is my personal fave. 48qt ice chest set in cab from pallet pieces my daughter and I disassembled and cut up. Pic #3, can’t hang out in the backyard without a place to put the empties! Trash can with removable top and flip up lid. And the last pic is two serving trays to carry whatever out to the coffee table. A really inexpensive yard set that has a cool, rustic look. I personally think it turned out great so far. And we’re looking to add a bar/buffet cabinet to facilitate cooking out.

That’s really cool I bet that set would sell for a pretty penny too

Got started today on the bar/buffet. Due to the size I decided to frame it out with 2×4s. I’ve got the frame done today. I tomorrow I’ll start siding it with pallet wood. Like the rest of the set, I’m leaving it rough and uneven for a matching look. My sister is replacing an old deck that I’ll get the wood that’s set out for 10yrs aging, that’ll make my bar top. Will post pics when I get it finished..
