The ubiquitous pallet — just when you think you’ve seen every pallet project under the sun, one comes along and surprises you! This clever little toddler sofa is the perfect height for playing, reading, or resting — and it’s super cute, to boot!

Griffin Carrick says this about her pallet sofa project:

I stumbled upon some abandoned wood pallets (once used to transport sod) in my neighborhood and jumped on the pallet bandwagon. I used the “It” DIY material to create a mini sofa for my 1-year-old daughter. The project was completely free. I used two found pallets, left over stain, the back cushions from my sofa that I had since replaced, and fabric to recover the cushions that was originally meant for another project that never came to be. The end result is a cozy place for both our daughter and my husband and I to enjoy story time.

She has lots more information and step-by-step photos on her blog, The Design Itch.

Thanks, Griffin!
