    One thing that I see a lot of upcycling/repurposing ideas for are wooden pallets. I've seen them used for garden planters...

    Even for kitchen storage!

    I love the way a lot of these look and want to give some of them a go myself.

    Has anyone tried to upcycle wooden pallets for any sort of DIY projects?

    mostly for compost heaps, bearers for sheds, fencing and the like but I know people who have built a whole cabin out of pallets.

    So far for compost heap & pig pens, but we are thinking of using them to construct a cubby for the grandchildren.

    I love the idea to use them for a pig pen. So cost effective too.

    And my kids would love a cubby made from them too. I might have to see if there are some examples online - we always have people in the neighborhood getting rid of those pallets so finding good ways to upcycle them is always a helpful thing.

    I love this! I'm thinking of rushing down to my hardware store and getting something like this made. I will paint in dragon red and sun yellow! :) Pallet-bed.jpg
