Remember my musings on my new patio project in the works? I kept my promise and whipped up a new pallet wood chair… in mere hours!
This round I desired a super easy build that anyone could make. Even non builders. The building post will be tomorrow as everything in one post would have been too large… so for today, here’s a little pallet wood and burlap coffee bean sack pillow eye candy!
Burlap coffee bean sacks are the perfect no sew upholstery. They act as giant pillow cases that allow for large pillows to just slip inside. For the sitting area, I just loosely tucked them in place.
I have a reason for the cheater upholstery which I’ll share in part 2.
Taking advantage of all the natural crate markings on the wood, I allowed them to become the artwork. Pretty funky, huh? I vote to celebrate that it IS pallet wood.
Both arms are different which I love. I used a sign I had created on a board and just cut to size.
This leg got a little extra detail with an antique wooden level. It’s the tiniest little details that you fall for.
And yeah, the board cracked because I didn’t predrill. More on that in part 2.
Not wishing to obstruct the outdoor mountain view behind the chair, a pallet the same height as the railing was chosen as the backer. If one didn’t love the look of a pallet backing, you could always build a little gate look which I nearly did, but decided no. This round, it was about grouping up 2 pallets intact. The oversized pillows cover it anyway!
If you adore working with pallets as much as I do, you’ll LOVE this amazing clipboard I’ve curated from Hometalk!
