If you’re like me, you love planning your next DIY project with your family and friends. Whether you’re looking to improve your garden or make a BBQ grill or fire pit, you’re always searching for inspiration.
Since summer is in full swing, we wanted to share an awesome project these people created using leftover pallets. Check out how Imgur user RedheadFox turned everyday pallets into a backyard escape perfect for cocktail parties and outdoor lounging.
To create their DIY backyard patio, they first sanded down 43 raw pallets to make them smooth to the touch. Sanding the pallets also removed any dirt. Next they painted each one with primer and then a coat of white paint using a painting gun.
While letting them dry, they laid out a 19×13-foot rectangle of geotextile fabric which would become the base of their patio and prevent unwanted weed overgrowth. They started to lay the pallets on top and then stack them into walls. They also created some pallet benches by putting them atop each other.
The fence, walls, and benches were stabilized with steel rods and wire.
The final result was a perfect place for loungers to enjoy a relaxing day after a long week. The DIY patio is a perfect place for a glass of champagne or a morning coffee with friends.
What do you think of the final result? And to think they started with leftover pallets.
