Last summer we made a pallet sofa and a table for our living room.


Step 1: Purchasing

  • 10 pallets (each 80*120 cm) They were

very cheap because my godfather works in a warehouse. They were used for beer cans storage.

  • White wood paint
  • Safety glass
  • Wheels
  • Foam
  • Drapes

Step 2: Polishing

Step 3: Painting

Step 4: Carry to Our Living Room

Step 5: Foam Cutting

We cut the foams with a sharp knife.

Step 6: Drape Sewing

Step 7: The Table

We bought a 79,5 * 119,5 cm safety glass for the top and screw 4 wheels at the bottom.

Step 8: Pillows and the Cat :)

We cut the foams into small pieces to fill 9 pillows.

How much did the foam cost you?
<p> 80 Euros as I remember.</p>
Oh, OK thank you!
<p>At the table: the plates are loose on each other or how did you make it stick together?</p>
<p>I used wood screws</p>
<p>cool project!!</p>
<p>Where did you get your foam? My wife and I were looking to do one of these for our screened in porch, but when I priced the foam it was going to be like US$800, when everything else was free (we got our hands on some leftover outdoor quality fabric). It looks like you have ~6&quot; thick...egg crate foam?</p>
<p>Try some of the thick mattress toppers. You might want some plywood or other solid board over the pallets.</p>
<p>We bought it from JYSK in Hungary.</p><p><a href="http://jysk.hu/haloszoba/matracok/habszivacs-matracok/basic/matrac-90x200-price-star-habszivacs" rel="nofollow">http://jysk.hu/haloszoba/matracok/habszivacs-matra...</a></p><p>It's 9 cm* 90 cm *200 cm. We needed 5 pieces and we had to cut.</p><p>That was cheapest solution for us :)</p>
<p>did you staple the drapes to a piece of plywood?</p>
<p>No, we just put it on the pallets.</p>
<p>Wow it&rsquo;s so nice! Thanks for the tutorial! I want try as soon as possible..</p>
Very well done... You can do anything with pallets
<p>So, godfather made you an offer on the pallets you couldn't refuse eh? ;-)</p><p>Really, you did an outstanding job on this suite, well done!</p>
<p>Really cool project! Simple and elegant!</p>
