Get creative with pallets!

PaletteThis book offers 33 DIY pallet items in which the humble pallet is transformed into affordable, practical and eco-friendly furniture, decor, toys, garden products and gifts. Upcycling is the term that is used for the creative recycling of discarded materials or unusable or unwanted items to create new products.

The book is packed with full-colour photos and easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions – from how to dismantle the raw pallet to planning and building your own projects, and paint techniques for finishing off your products. The difficulty of the projects varies, so the book is ideal for beginner crafters and DIY enthusiasts with more advanced skills. Some of the projects include: a wine rack, garden-tool rack, coffee table, easy chair, trousseau chest, book case, vegetable rack, photo frame, planters, toy kitchen, a toy trolley and a playhouse.

It is a great book for entrepreneurs who want to earn money from manufacturing pallet products.
