One of the great things about having an innovative mind is the freedom and skill to make something out of practically nothing – or ‘garbage’! In this article we are going to show you the versatility of a Pallet. A pallet is simply a wooden structure used by manufacturers, distributors and companies to transport various types of goods and equipment. Fortunately for many creative geniuses, these discarded and used pallets, have become part of their furniture and even added to their home décor. They can be obtained free at warehouses, supermarkets or nearby dumpsters of hardware stores. Now let’s look at a few pallet projects you or your friends may want to try.
