When we moved in 6 yrs ago, we bought a nice patio set which I upholstered last year, find the tutorial HERE. I loved that makeover very much as it was a huge transformation, but this year the cushions were ready for a change again.patio pallet furniture 3Then we placed the already cut pallets on the top of each other to make an L shape sectional in the corner of the deck. (Little man was there helping of course. :-)) Hubby cut big thick legs for the sitting furniture from 4 x 4 wood panel, and we screwed those to the bottom of the pallets with small tie plates. We attached a long 2×6 piece to the back of the pallet to balance out the furniture, and used small tie plates to secure the pallets together.patio pallet furniture 4Some will say that outdoor pallet furniture sacrifice style for functionality.
