Now we're going to share with you a tutorial video of a pallet furniture that has two functions at the same time. It’s a bench and a shoerack too. You can sit on it while put on your shoes and also have a little space to store them.
Enjoy it! ;)
what you need:

2 pcs of 120x80cm pallets

saw or jig saw

hammer and nails

sanding papers or tool

woodpaint, paintbrush


measuring tape

+ and the most important: safety tools!
Saw a 33cm - 13in part or a size what kind of entry bench you want. (You can see a pic of it in the video.) We used jig saw to the faster work, but a simple saw also a good choice.

! safety first !

Always use goggles, respirator and gloves to protect yourself.
From the rest of the pallet you can finish the bench andalso create the legs. Take apart it - we used a sabre saw, but if you don't have any, use an iron saw.
- the top and the bottom:

After that need a 80cm - 31,5in slat and clinch 3 cubes on it and join it to the first separated part of the pallet. After you turn around this part of the bench-shoerack, fix the slats on the other side too.
- the legs:

Need 2 pcs of 33cm - 13in slats and 2 pcs of cubes for the legs. Simple you join them each other.

Repeat the full process once more by the second pallet!
Keep sanding until the surface is free from all rough things. We used a sanding tool with 80 grit paper. By the hard approachable surface use a piece of slat and wind around the grit paper...or use a rotary sanding tool, much easier work.

After that, brush the dust off.
Almost the last step is paintwork, we used mahagony colour wood paint. Let the surface dry completely, it takes 24 hours.
Hole where the parts of the entry shoe storage bench will join each other. After that mark the place of the next holes

with a help of nail. - So the parts will pass correctly. Use carriage bolts in order to the bench will be stable and join the parts.
Don't forget to check the tutorial video too!!! :) we hope will motivate you to "do it yourself". Have fun!
