Want to tinker? Why not make a sofa out of pallets for your garden yourself? Easy to make, it is also easy to integrate on your patio. The proof in 10 examples.

This is one of the major DIY trends: the reuse of materials considered as waste, also called “upcycling”. And in this category, wooden pallets used in distribution offer many possibilities. Inside, they turn into base of an extra bed, as a dining table, in a desk, at the head of the bed, or even as a coffee table when fitted with wheels. Outside, you can make canapes resistant, tables that are easy to move, original planters or even storage racks for your garden tools. In a few hours, and for a few euros, you can revamp your terrace using pallets intended for the recycling center, repainted or varnished, and transformed into clever and unique garden furniture. If you opt for a pallet sofa for your patio, be aware that most DIY stores and some home decor stores now offer seats and cushions adapted to the dimensions of the pallets, which allows you to garnish them easily, even if you are not good at sewing!

Here are 10 examples in pictures to fill up with inspiration. It’s up to you to play then to arrange, you too, your garden or your terrace with pallets.

The idea to copy: Slide a rather compact pallet sofa into a small space like a balcony. And thus create a reading and relaxation corner that will make you forget that you don’t have a garden!

The idea to copy: Mix bright colors and patterned fabrics, like those inspired by African waxes, to give your sofa and garden an exotic touch that makes you want to travel!

The idea to copy: an outdoor living room that fully plays the card of the natural. The reclaimed spirit of the pallets is here completed with a pretty green shade for an elegant terrace, and natural materials with a woven fiber rug. What to go green in every sense of the word.

The idea to copy: Associate the charcoal gray, always very chic, with a powerful, luminous yellow like the saffron shade. The result is an illuminated terrace, full of energy and modernity, and the color blends well with that of the pallet wood left raw.

The idea to copy: Superimpose mattresses, toppers, floor cushions and other comfort cushions on the pallets, to obtain a unique sofa, ultra comfortable and very welcoming. Remember, of course, to choose only fabrics that are water-repellent or suitable for bad weather.

The idea to copy: Combine warm colors, such as brick red, buttercup yellow or orange, with the color palette of the garden plants, which are rather cold. The contrast creates an almost exotic atmosphere, sometimes reminiscent of the hacienda style. Also think of the pallet coffee table!

The idea to copy: Line up several small sofas in pallets of different heights, i.e. made up of one or two pallets. You thus create a break in the linearity of the sofa, and a play of volume at the edge of the swimming pool. It is also a clever solution to create a comfortable seat for children!

The idea to copy: Paint the pallets. If we like their raw side, a little paint will immediately give them a much more chic look. You can then fill them with soft cushions chosen in assorted colors for an elegant result, or on the contrary, mix the colors for an exterior that exudes good humor.

The idea to copy: As in a real living room, the L-shaped sofa is trendy, especially when it is embellished with a chaise like here. Go for bright blues like royal blue, for the cushions and the rug, and you will have a bright terrace like those of the Greek islands.
