The armchairs complement the living room decor when used in conjunction with the sofa, but they can also be used individually on balconies, gardens, pool borders and bedrooms. Now, have you ever considered having a pallet armchair? Yes that's right! The material is being increasingly used for the creation of furniture and decorative pieces.
The use of pallets for furniture has proven very feasible, since the material is durable, resistant and the wood allows to create a series of interventions to customize the furniture. The pallets were originally created to assist loading heavy loads in logistics companies, factories and trades. However, after a period of use this material is discarded and thrown away. But sustainability has spoken louder and the pallets have gained new usefulness.
Keeping an eye on this trend, many artisans decided to bet their skills on the making of pieces of pallet. With this, nowadays it is possible to find easily from beds to sofas and, of course, armchairs made with the material. The price of a pallet chair over the internet is approximately $ 360.00, with cushions included.
But you can also make your own pallet armchair. The necessary materials are limited to the pallets themselves, some screws, a saw and varnish or latex paint to give the desired finish. You may even get a donation of pallets, but if you can not, do not worry. The material is cheap and can be purchased for about $ 20 each piece. The other materials are also easily found and you may even have them at home.
One tip before starting the production of the armchair is to clean the pallets with a simple solution of water, bleach and neutral detergent. Spend this mixture on all material with a sponge. It is also important to remove possible nails and screws that may be in the piece, as well as wood splinters.
Then just go to the step by step that also has no complication. You will see in the tutorial videos below how simple and quick it is to make a pallet armchair. We've selected the best ideas for you to get inspired and if you want, see more about pallet decoration , sofas , beds , panels , racks and table .
