Has any one item been reused more creatively, with more functional use and more practical application than the lowly used wood pallet? An item made for the simple task of helping to move large and heavy objects in warehouses. Has any one item been recycled, upcycled more spectacularly than the wood pallet?
I would wager than there is not an object so often transformed into a useful object than this stack of wooden planks pieced together to form a small slab for the simple transportation of other sometimes more useful objects and products. From headboards to console tables, here’s how to turn a wood pallet into a charming rustic accessory for your home.
