Answered
I acquired the pallets after my church's garage sale. They've been sitting in my yard for weeks waiting for me to make something great. I need shelves, outdoor bench and/or a small backyard storage shed like thing. Yesterday I got 4 3x3x8 wood posts. But where can find directions?

    We use pallets to make big rustic signs. Attach slats together, stain them a dark stain and write a saying in white.

    You could make a good-sized doghouse that has needed ventilation for the dogs. Put a 'maze' inside the structure so they can have alot of fun each day ! You can also paint it the same color as your house, so neighbors and friends will think it was built with the original house. Have fun !

    Out door bench would be great out of those or a bench around a breakfast nook or dining room or a window seat any of those can have storage underneath or inside if you put hinges on the seat where it can open up. post again after you're done I would like to know what you end up with
