Deutsch I moved to a new flat, and therefore had to dissect some furniture. Transportation went fine, and afterwards, why not restructure some of the pallet furniture? This was mandatory for the pallet sofa which didn’t fit in its old L-Form, but with the double bed, i changed some details which i now really like. In the former version, the mattress was positioned quite “on top” of the bed, now […]

Deutsch Pallets are large and bulky, and what you build with them, tends to be large, too: thats not entirely true. If you use a single pallet appropriately, it can be quite fun to build smaller pieces of furniture. The following shoe rack was rather a short tinkering on the occasion, as some shoe pillars started to annoy me. The time spent on it: about two hours, so thats a […]

Deutsch Third and final stage. (previous tasks: pallet sofa: first constructions, pallet sofa: diy session two). In session two I already mentioned that the foam mattresses arrived recently. Two mattresses, eight centimeter thick foam, 200×120 cm, that should be enough (it was). I had to do a bit of patchwork and plan the cutting quite good. I had very few offcut afterwards, thats fine. OTOH, most foam parts “in one […]

Deutsch Second stage: Since the first pallet sofa DIY session, a package arrived with a two 2x2m 8cm foam plascic boards. At the hardware store i bought six meter timber beams (6x8cm thick), and an electric staple gun. Today, the wooden framework was completed – sofa parts with backrests are completed, so is the base structure. First, the remaining backrest assemblys. The longer part of the L-Shape has now also […]

Deutsch What follows was partly experimental: i wrote this text while the sofa wasn’t finisted as the first of three blogposts documenting the progress on a pallet sofa. Spoiler: the blog icon to the left shows the finisted thing. It worked, and its great, yay! Nevertheless: i’ll leave in the “i don’t know yet” stuff in this blogpost, for i really didn’t, and it shows quite good how a project […]

Deutsch This pallet bed version is quite simple and was built quickly. With all needed stuff at hand, its a “should be done through the weekend” thing. Since i wanted to finish it over a weekend without having everything i wished for at hand, i had to deal with the stuff i had, that was fine, too. The compromises were made at spots invisible after the full assembly, though. Starting […]
