Pallet Benches

Hi!  Today I'd love to share with you some pallet benches that we made this spring.  We needed some new seating in the yard, had these pallets, and decided to give it a try.  No they're not perfect, but they're strong enough to handle lots of sitting on. :)

We used some pallets and also some extra boards that we scavenged at the local dump.  I love that people throw away perfectly good wood that I can take home.

Along with the wood, they were were all screwed together like a fence and so when we scavenged the wood, all the screws came with it and then we didn't need to buy any to screw the bench together. That was an extra bonus. :)

Well the second bench is not yet put together, but has all the parts ready for assembly at this point.  We went ahead and stained the above bench and our picnic table to match.  So, still a work in progress with the other bench not yet finished, but we hope to have it done by this coming weekend.  
When the other bench is finished, it will go beside this one around the fire pit.  We put a board over the fire pit to keep it dry, and the rock is to keep it from blowing off.  We get some good gusts by the riverside. 

Thanks so much for dropping by!
