You can easily find wood pallets from small, independent or locally-owned garden stores, nurseries, hardware stores, and power equipment stores. The key here is to visit independent stores since large companies and major hardware stores likely have contracts with pallet removal companies.

Stack pallets to create your sitting area. You can then buy cushions or make them your self with the next DIY below.

DIY Couch Cushions

To create a nice cushion, use foam and a soft fabric. Wrap around the cushion and form and sew the front edge of the cushion. Instead of a zipper, use velcro strips and sew them to the hemmed back of the cushion cover.

DIY Modern Looking Floating Bookshelves

To create a sleek modern look, use bookends to screw on your wall.

Close the first book on it then stack 4 to 6 books over it (depending on the weight).

Alternate your selves on the wall to create a non-linear look.

QUICK TIP Don’t know where to start?
