Pallet potential ...

After receiving some heavy shipments, we have been left with several wooden pallets. Recycle, you say? Sure, that's just what I have in mind. I'm thinking there are some incredibly beautiful upcycling treatments that may be a project-in-waiting.



Isn't this the coolest outdoor swing you can imagine? I love it. What a brilliant recycling effort shown via Relax Shacks. It looks absolutely awesome in the tropical setting seen in the photo.



The image via Alternative Consumer (above left) gives me a great idea for constructing an impressive storage armoir. An industrial coffee table seems like an easy transition for a stained pallet. Photo via Pinterest.



Pallets as architectural elements? Absolutely brilliant idea. As shown in the photo above, pallets have been transformed into exterior shades and moveable shutters to manage light and heat. Even if they served no purpose, these modern elements are a beautiful architectural feature. Image from Wooden Pallets For Sale.

The uber hip, deconstructed look of pallets has not been lost on retail establishments. Just check out the pallet facade on the trendy Matteo Outlet in Los Angeles (above left) or the wall of pallets at Vessel Garden.

Are there large volume discounts for sandpaper? I sure hope so!
