Pallets have long been a popular go-to when it comes to repurposed projects, but we haven’t seen anyone utilize them quite as creatively as Aniko Levai. When it came time to decorate her patio for summer, the Place of My Taste blogger turned to pallets to transform the space. From a vertical garden to sectional seating, Aniko left no corner undecorated. Here’s what her patio looked like pre-makeover:
1. Pallet Sectional
Before she got started, Aniko’s husband stained the patio’s wood floor. They then used pallets to construct an L-shaped sectional. They used the same stain on the pallets as they did on the flooring to keep the look cohesive.
2. Pallet Table
Next, Aniko and her husband got to work on a small pallet table by using smaller-than-usual panels and stacking two on top of each other. They used a cool green shade (Behr’s Grass Cloth) for a bright, summery color and also cut a hole in the middle of the table for an umbrella. Aniko also installed wheels on the bottom for easy mobility.
3. Pallet Planter
For added greenery and some colorful flair, Aniko built a planter out of pallets. She used yellow flower boxes (complete with a hook on the back!) from IKEA and hung them from the panels.
Once her pallet furniture was finished, Aniko completed the look by adding a patterned rug from Target, chevron pillows, an outdoor stool, and a lantern. The best part? The grand total of her colorful makeover was just $350.
