uses for repurposed wooden pallets

I love the earthy roughness of old used wood. In my opinion wooden pallets are an ideal vehicle for a little creative DIY. Repurposing is eco-friendly and a wonderful way to add your own personality to your home. I am particularly fond of furniture that looks like it has journeyed far and wide, each dent and imperfection another line in the story of its lengthy existence. I’m also partial to furniture that has a definite function, not just aesthetic value. I found the ideas below inspirational, and so now I’m off to find some pallets.
