It goes without saying that DIY offers almost endless possibilities. Not only do we create original items, but in the first place we develop our skills and creativity.
So if you are keen on such solutions, we have got something you will certainly like. An original sofa made of wooden pallets. Who knows, perhaps there soon will be one like this on your living room or garden? Read on to find out some more details!
STEP 1 Choosing the right materials
Before you start, check the condition of the pallet; they can’t be damaged and their surface has to be quite smooth. It will save you lots of work and prevent unexpected difficulties. It is also important to choose the right mattress ahead of the construction process. If it is to be thick, you will need fewer pallets to make the bed.
STEP 2. Appropriate backrest
To ensure appropriate support, the pallet was trimmed to half a meter.
If you think the gap is too wide, you can fill it with some wooden elements. That’s what the man did here.
At this stage you will need some screws or nails.
STEP 3: Preparing two 30cm-long pieces
They are used to secure the backrest which will soon be joined with the base of the sofa.
And the sofa is almost ready
STEP 4: extra support
To provide some extra support, the author of the design used two boards, each 52 cm long.
It was then when he chose the desired angle of the backrest.
Finally he secured the 30-cm long boards from the bottom.
Of course you can paint it any desired color if you want. You can also add armrests or even drawers to store things there. There are several options!
Of course this piece can be used both indoors and outdoors.
