Introduction: Our Pallet Sofa and Table

Picture of Our Pallet Sofa and Table

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

Step 1: Purchasing

Picture of 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

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?

imi0827 (author)rogersba172016-09-16

80 Euros as I remember.

At the table: the plates are loose on each other or how did you make it stick together?

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" thick...egg crate foam?

Try some of the thick mattress toppers. You might want some plywood or other solid board over the pallets.

We bought it from JYSK in Hungary.

It's 9 cm* 90 cm *200 cm. We needed 5 pieces and we had to cut.

That was cheapest solution for us :)

did you staple the drapes to a piece of plywood?

imi0827 (author)NaniM12015-06-22

No, we just put it on the pallets.
