Top 10 DIY Pallet Projects

Pallets are becoming an increasingly popular object to upcycle – they are quite versatile and can be used to make almost anything. The best part is that they are very easy to find and are usually free! We call that a major win-win. Check our favorite pallet projects for your home.
