Pallets are an inexpensive building material for the budget conscience DIY’er; they are usually made out of hardwood, treated to last a long time and best of all they are free. Due to these benefits they have exploded in popularity over the last several years in the homesteading community.

We personally have built our chicken coop, duck house and compost bin with pallets for very minimal cost. With a little imagination and a lot of elbow grease you can even make beautiful and functional rustic pieces of furniture just as Kat And House did when they built their own version of a DIY Pallet Pantry. Below is a brief overview of how they did it.

If you do decide to tackle this project, be sure to find pallets that are stamped HT for heat-treated; which is the method used to preserve the wood in the pallet. The other method is Methyl Bromide fumigation which creates a health risk and should not be used for projects or for firewood.
