How to turn a pallet into a unique piece for the home

With a bit of know-how, a lot of elbow grease and some paint, you can create functional furniture, wall art or garden planters from these unfinished weather-beaten pieces of lumber.

Everywhere you look these days, the humble pallet is being transformed into an art form, a piece of furniture or storage for your home.

Once used only by shipping and storage companies and transporters of bulky goods, pallets are being reimagined by ordinary people into unique pieces.
