The use of shipping pallets in the home is a bit of a trend; we've run across numerous projects recently. There are so many different ways these unique blocks of wood can be utilized by keeping them whole or reassembling them to create one of a kind pieces of furniture.
One of the most unique and beautiful ways we've seen pallets used is in a pretty unlikely place — the kitchen. Disassembling several pallets and reconstructing them, a beautiful and unique kitchen island was made. Painted black it turns into this modern and industrial addition to the space!
A rather common use of pallets is as a bed frame. Place them on the floor (or better yet on castors) and put one or several mattresses on top. While this might not be the ideal set up for a bed used every night, it's perfect for a lounger in a sunroom.
