Pallet Shed Using Pallets, Old Windows & Tin Cans


It’s been a long journey and a learning lesson from the first pallet to the last. My pallet shed is finally complete and I am very pleased how it turned out. It's still one of my favorite pallet projects to date.
In the beginning...
I grabbed a bunch of pallets.
A couple windows and a door from curbside. They're almost perfect for my little pallet shed.
I then covered the outside of the shed with pallet planks.
A cute little sign from the thrift store hangs above the door and an old rocking chair on the porch.
I love the tin can roof! The roof was shingled using tin cans, flattened and painted using metal paint.
We’ve had a few small showers and everything has stayed dry. Loving the color. For more info visit

    I need a new roof for my shed and I was wondering if this can can idea would work? What did you put under the tin cans to make it waterproof ?

      It is metal. It is already waterproof. If you mean what was done to stop rust then the answer is in the article. The tin cans were painted with metal paint. Something like Rustoleum would work best but any outdoor metal paint would get the job done.
