My pallet wood chair that is kinda like a love seat is now complete! And I can’t wait to share how it turned out AND how I built it!
Desiring something super unique, this 2-full pallet chair was whipped up in a couple of hours, and is PERFECT for the non builder types!
I just desired something you couldn’t find in a big box store. So I gathered up two like-minded pallets, some reclaimed wood, and got to work!
You could actually call this an oversized chair or love seat. It does both thanks to the abundant size of the pallets used.
And the great news is, it doesn’t take up a lot of space! It’s compact and perfect for underneath a covered patio as outdoor furniture.
And of course, comfy too, thanks to the mattress I used!
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.
The reason for the cheater upholstery is in PART 2 HERE.
See how the large pillows were done HERE.
Taking advantage of all the natural pallet wood crate markings on the wood, I allowed the stamps 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, cut to size and used it as an armrest that was abundant enough for a coffee cup (of course).
(see the original Farmers Market sign HERE)
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 not to. This round, it was about grouping up 2 pallets intact. The oversized pillows cover it anyway!
How to build the pallet wood chair part 2 is below!
