Make a Pallet Fence that will cost you nothing

Pallets can be found so many places for free. And you can make all kind of great things from them. We have made this from light weight pallets. Here goes: Drill some supporting pallet boards to the walls - like 2 or 3 on top of each other. Drill the first pallet you see on the left of the picture to the supporting boards. Drill the following pallets to the previous. Do the same on the opposite side. If you do not have a wall to fix it on, then find a log that you can put down in the ground to fix it to. On the pallet you will use for a gate place some strong hinges and a lock on the other side. For extra support put some boards or small logs in the front and/or back to keep it solid. Happy hunting and building

    This is a really good alternative to picket fences which can be achieved at a very minimal cost. That is why it is always good to explore and have those creative juices flowing when it comes to refurbishment around the house. We can have a completely different outlook without spending a single cent if we already have the items necessary to DIY the new design.

    A paling fence like that sure reminds me about installing one for my house. Especially for the backyard of my home that is missing. What type of tools would you need for the installation? <a href='http://www.altoagencies.com.au/paling-replacement1' ></a>

    I saw a post similar to this. Instead of drilling the pallets into each other they used posts inserted into the ground and just slid the pallets overtop of the posts. Both are great ideas.

    we used the really really heavy 8ft pallets for our fence, and it works wonderful for our little dogs.........

    I have an old chain link fence that was originally put in but it wasn't done correctly and it looks terrible and is sagging. Do you think I can just get rid of it and do a pallet fence? I have 5 smallish dogs and want to keep them contained.

    absolutely - its easy done if you use light weight pallets - i had a medium sized dog. I would just put som net on the inside, though for smaller dogs as extra precaution. Good luck with it all :)
    Best regards
