You know those old pallets you see piled up next to dumpsters behind stores and businesses? Those are a do-it-yourselfer's gold mine! Grab a few the next time you see them (after you ask nicely, of course), and get to work on some of these pallet projects seen on Pinterest
Robyn, over at Robyn's View turned an old pallet into a vertical garden, perfect for gardening in small spaces or adding some height to a flat space.
Headboards are expensive, but they don't have to be! Over at Little bits of… , an old pallet was transformed into a beautiful headboard. Adding a little bit of artwork gave it a shabby chic look many would pay big bucks to get!
Children's reading chair
Little people love little chairs. That's why the bloggers over at Kojo Designs hit a home run when they used two pallets to create corner seating perfect for little ones. The addition of a handmade book holder makes it the perfect place for a child to cuddle up with a good book.

They'll sell you one from their Etsy store too.
