You might say I have a special place in my heart for pallets these days. This pallet wood outdoor sofa reveal showcases my favorite place to sit!
While this sofa is a little bit more involved to build, there is also a simple chair version below that took only 2 hours to make with two full pallets!
If you like your outdoor furniture a little more unique, this is the post for you!

2013 pallet sofa revision
Changing the look of this pallet sofa is fun, and easy! Here, the burlap bags were loosely wrapped around the seat cushion, topped with random loose pillows.

How to make wooden buttons
When I found this fab post on Pinterest on how to make wood slice buttons, I knew I had to try.
Thanks for your inspiration, Lindsey!
1 / Using a compound miter saw, 2 sized branches were sliced. I found out pretty quick that bigger was better this round.
2 / A drill bit and cordless drill were used to create two holes.
3 / 2 types of twine were doubled up, then sewn onto the pillow.
4 / This pillow case was made with a piece of found canvas with rivits at a thrift store. I placed a regular bed pillow inside the canvas, then folded into the shape I desired. The loose, folded over areas were hand sewn to stay intact.
Cute! The perfect woodsy touch!

A combination of 2×4’s, 3×3’s, and all sorts of random found pallet boards were used for the entire project, rating the wood free. I LOVE free. And the challenge to make it all work.
It’s totally comfy as all get out, sturdy as a rock and large enough for the two of us. Which was the REAL reason for making it.
I’ve already spent a few evenings out there reading my book with my coffee. Perfect for those hot summer nights. Gotta love arms that accommodate a coffee…
A mix of warm whites along with a painter’s cloth keep it light and bright for summer yet not too fussy.
My first intention had been to create an old gate look for the back, but the random boards were a rather quirky twist I was taken to mid stream… so I left them.
Equally quirky arms keep you from yawning. 🙂
Ah… my little visitor means the photo shoot was taking too long.
Well, come on in then, dog!
The aftermath of a long ongoing project are numbered stickers that end up where they don’t really belong…. nice upside down 6 ya got there, Jenna. 🙂
And then… “Mom, can I sit down yet?!?”
I think we’ll call this one a wrap. And a success! We all love this thing!
