DIY projects are a big hit in India and the trend of reuse, recycle and refurbish the old yet usable items is high these days. Since, wooden pellets are a rather easy to find items and come almost free of cost, they have become a personal favorite of those who want to create a dramatic look inside home using cheap material. Instead of dumping in environment and causing problems, it is better to re-purpose and add a new breath to these wooden planks. 

Wooden pallets refer to the frames that are usually used to lift up and transport the large and vast sized containers. They become useless after a few use for the transportation companies but they can be your pick to save some big money and make it usable without any losses.  Let us look at some hot DIY ideas to create and incorporate Pallet furniture to your home.

Hanging Bliss

Your bedroom can become a dream place to rest and laze upon. One of the easiest and innovative ideas to make use of wooden pallets is to dismantle it and use it to make the bed base. All you have to do is to lay down a few pallets on the required surface area and secure them over one another. That's ALL! Now you can lay few mattresses over it and then dapper it with some beautiful pillows, cushions and bed sheet. Something of less work and more creative. You can either try to suspend the base on floor or be experimental by hanging it by ropes from the roof. 

You might be required to cut and sand all the pieces to  create a well furnished and durable space. This will make the assembly process so much easier.
