Upcycling Pallets

Wooden pallets are one of the most inexpensive and readily available upcycle materials nationwide, and believe it or not, they really can be recycled and reclaimed to transform your interiors! Inspired by our wonderful retailer Pure Pallets and our Pinterest board, here’s a few ideas of how you can rescue perfectly good quality wood from landfill and create fabulous eco-friendly accessories for your home.

We start off with our talented retailer Purepallets, who repurpose pallets to create wonderful sustainable homewares. Have a look at this great little wine rack, available in various sizes catering for all wine collections! It has a great hanging rack allowing easy access to wine and glasses in case of emergency…
