A repurposed pallet Bench!
This Project took 1 pallet and a few boards from another to make the support boards on the side.
Start by cutting down the middle, and this will make 2 benches. But remember all pallets are different. What works one time may not another.
These 2 boards (below) are actually from the center section of another pallet. (the boards in between the top and bottom boards) Hope that makes sense.
Cut them in half, these are your legs!
Then I screwed them to into place.
They legs are too wobbly alone, so you will have to brace on the inside and out. On both sides.
These little boards that I placed in between I found on the bargain rack at Menards.
29 cents, not too shabby. Needless to say I bought quite a few of em. I know they will be handy for other projects also.
Cut and nail them in place.
I didn't paint this top one, just because I like the look.
And this bottom one is lightly painted white. The white won't be as bright as it sits outside awhile.
And here is my attempt at a colorful one.
Paint the colors in no particular order.
I cut yard sticks to size,then rubbed the stain on them.
I applied a coat of paint on top of the colors.
One the paint is dry, then sand.
After you sand to the level you like, then rub the same stain on the wood as well. Until you get the color you want to achieve. I applied a few more after this picture was taken and the wood became darker and I thought looked better.
