A couple years ago when I got my first pallet, I made a very rustic pallet bench. Keeping most of the pallet intact, I just cut it in half and used the extra wood for legs. Seriously simple.
Then I moved it to the porch and made a cushion.
Surprisingly, I still get lots of visitors to my blog (through pinterest) just because of this little bench. Which I find amusing. I had no idea it would be so popular. But re-purposing pallets are the “in thing” right now, so I’m not surprised people like it.
Then a few months ago I made a new bench for our bedroom but ended up not liking it there. So I replaced the old one on the porch. I didn’t use any plans for this, just made it up.
It has an shelf on the bottom made of two 2x2s to hold a crate full of gardening things, and the B-Fly box.
The old bench went to the side of the house. This is one the the best places to sit in the winter. No wind and sunny. If I was a cat this is where I would nap.
