Hey My Loves,

 

Today, I am sharing our pallet furniture DIY. We made this sectional about 2 yrs ago and I am finally posting it for the world to see. Over the years, it has held up very well with little to no maintenance. But, I never made the cushions. Poor thing pretty much sat naked waiting to be dressed 😳. A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be invited to participate in a collaboration where I shared my Outdoor Living Patio Makeover. This gave me that spark to finally complete the sectional. Alright, alright enough talking.

Be sure to check out my DIY Pallet Funiture – Pation Sectional video as well.

Let’s begin the steps:

Collect as many pallets as you can find in all colors, shapes and sizes. These can be found for free behind many retail stores. I suggest using those found behind grocery stores. Many pallets are treated with pesticides. Because they are used for food, those found at your local grocier will use the safe chemicals.

If you are having problems locating pallets, you may also find people giving them away on Craig’s List.

Arrange pallets in the way you want your funiture to sit. In our case, we wanted an L-shaped sectional using the house for the back of one side of the sectional.

Remove planks from the pallets. Use the better looking planks for your seating.

Since your pallets are in different sizes, the planks will be in different sizes as well. They may need to be cut down to size.

Nail the cut planks to your seating.

We added a second layer of pallets, to increase the seating height.

Because we left unnecessary pieces of wood attached to the pallets, it made our sectional heavy. We learned quickly that removing unused or unnecessary wood would’ve have been smarter.

After flipping it over, it still did not sit as how as we wanted.

To add height, we created legs from a piece of wood off a pallet.

The legs gave the perfect height to these pieces.

We stacked pillows to determine the height of the seat back

We nailed three 2x4s to the sofa section of the sectional and two 2x4s to the chaise. Then I added planks to create the back.

To clean the wood, we power washed the pieces with a solution of soap and bleach.

For the finish, we used Glidden Exterior Flat black paint. We allowed the furniture to dry for 24hrs before applying paint.

We purchased Thompson’s WaterSeal to project my pallet sectional from water damage but neglected to use it.

Two years later, this is how the unprotected sectional looks. I believe there would have have been less color fading if it would have been protected. But overall, it’s in really good condition.

For the cushions, I am using a king size foam topper from Lucid which is 2″ thick.

For the cushion slip cover, I am using canvas drop cloths from Home Depot.

I used hot glue to mend the slip cover.

    How long do the cushions take to dry?

      You and your husband did a great job!!! I have seen some long pallets like you used here, but usually, I’ve never seen more than one at a time. When I see another long pallet, it’s never the same type of construction, so they wouldn’t stack together well. But, the same results are possible with a bunch of standard pallets.
