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.
