How to Build a Wood Pallet Deck

When we first began thinking about creating a new Outdoor Space, we knew we wanted a comfortable spot to relax, have a drink and enjoy the weather. We have been wanting to build a deck area for many years, but let’s face it, decks can be expensive to build.
So my husband came up with the idea to build a deck from Wood Pallets, it turned out beautiful!
I love how the the furniture and rug all coordinate on the Wood Pallet Deck.
Our side yard was in pretty sad shape before the clean up.
Wood Pallets also come spaced close together, which is perfect for the deck. We purchased several that were great, a couple were a little rough, but it worked out fine.
The deck has been painted and set into place. Visit the blog to see how we leveled it off.
NOTE: These Pallets are made special by a Manufacturer. They hold 1000-1200 pounds each. They are not ordinary pallets you find in the trash.
I love the flower pots filled with annuals too!
The orange colors make the deck so inviting!
Time to grab a drink and relax!

      If you type in Pallets for sale in your area, You will see if there is someplace close by that makes and sells them. Dont buy them on Amazon. You should be able to buy them for 10 bucks and under.

    Where did you get your pallets. Saw some on amazon for $70 but that outside the budget since I need 8.

      Any warehouse districts. I just drive around and pick up the good ones.

    Did you lay a ground cover so grass and weeds don’t grow through the pallets

    How do you treat it for outside weather? Does it hold up? It’s such a cool idea!

    I rarely comment and have no question. I simply wanted to say how lovely this turned out! It's colorful, thoughtfully designed, economically sound, and you did it yourselves! I'm encouraged when I see young families embracing the diy mindset. If I squint my eyes I can imagine the feel of the warm sun and diversion of a pitcher of Margarita's. Good for you!
