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

    can't wait to try it. Did you use tar paper under the tin cans? How did you preserve the pallets? Thanks

    I would LOVE to try this out, but how many pallets did you end up needing? Are there certain measurements you used or do you just start putting it together and see how it comes out?? Eithet way,, it looks amazing.
