Our Pallet Chair



Well I know the pallet project craze has been going on for quite some time. However, we are new to the blog world and had never heard of them until a few months back. So, when my in-law's neighbors offered to give us some pallets we snagged them up.  I had shown Rob various projects, and he said that he wanted to try out the chair.  Our inspiration was this chair done by Holy Scrap Hot Springs:


Rob was able to assemble the chair using a single pallet and basically figured out what worked for him along the way.  Then he used a belt sander to sand it down with 50, 120 and 330 grit paper.  Then he stained the chair with some leftover stain from a previous project. 

 Here is what the chair looked like with and without the stain.
 Here is the finished chair after it has been stained. We are looking forward to using these in our yard this summer.
Thanks so much for stopping by our blog! Enjoy your day.
