All you need are pallets and desire
Before you start, you must sand the pallet
Think about how big your sofa should be made of pallets to know how many pallets you need. For a very small sofa you will need 2 as backrests and 2 x 3 pallets as sofa seat and 2 pallets as armrests. Armrests are not compulsory at all. If you have not repurchased the pallets and there are some broken pallets, take them for the armrests or backrests. Because the pallets are too big for the armrests and they have to cut you down a bit. If you want to color the pallets, you must first sand them down.
The pallets can be embellished to your taste
When all the pallets are done, we can start!
You can choose the seat according to your wishes and simply screw the pallets together. That’s the easiest part of the manual. With the backrests it is a bit more difficult, but you can do it with our help! The screws must be long enough to reach far enough into the blocks. Of course you do not have to see the tips. Put the screw on pallet and you’ll see if it fits or not.
In general, you can drill the boards together either on the front and rear blocks or on all six blocks. Take two narrow boards and attach them to the outside of the sides. That’s for the seat. For the backrests, insert the boards into the seat as shown in the picture and in the video. The backrests screw in from behind through the supports. Then comes the pre-drilling again. To make the backrests tighter, attach them to the bottom of the seat. The sofa is ready! For more cosiness, combine the pallet sofa with a table made of Euro pallets or why not Bar counter made of pallets ?
