Pallet-ideas

Pallet ideas



For a while now I have been intrigued by the use of pallets. They seem to be everywhere and if you look for example on the craigslist or free cycle you see people trying to get rid of them all the time.

On my internet search I have seen, sheds, chicken coops, garden fences etc.. I decided to start a link section of these places and ideas so I don't have to keep repeat looking for them when I am trying to tell people about how wonderful they are:
