Pallet Repurpose

Every day I see pallets on the side of the road waiting to go to the dump.  There are so many pallet repurposing projects out there, I am going to have to stop and pick up the next one I see!  Here are some ideas and links to their DIY instructions…

Plate Rack:


Compost Bin:

Picture Mount:

Potting Bench:


Shoe Rack:



DIY Canopy Bed

This cute canopy is from (here is the actual link  DIY Canopy Bed.)

STEP 1: Unscrew a plastic 10-inch embroidery hoop ($2.99; so that it opens; discard the inner ring. 

STEP 2: Slide two 44-inch-wide rod-pocket curtain panels onto the hoop and screw it back together. Or sew your own curtains, as we did, from awning fabric ($30 per yard; for stores). Either way, the panels should be at least 96 inches long. 

STEP 3: Take two 24-inch lengths of half-inch-wide ribbon and tie one end of each (with a double knot) onto the hoop at the gaps between the curtains. 

STEP 4: Tie the ribbons’ loose ends together in a bow. 

STEP 5: Screw a pot-rack hook ($5.99; into your ceiling. 

STEP 6: Slip the center of the bow over the hook to hang.
