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 furniture 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.
