Have you ever wanted to custom build your own furniture?
If you have, I can’t say I blame you, because only you know what you want.
That’s why this repurposed wood pallet sofa is so cool!

The inspiration behind the sofa was as simple as this. They moved. So, they needed to figure out a couch replacement and came up with this sofa.
It’s made from six pallets and foam printing. So, it’s relatively simple to make for those ambitious at heart.
The only catch is that the foam covers were custom made. 4°D had Baratico, custom make it.
[It was] a tad laborious when sewing the sleeves and paint pallets but naps on the couch are 5 stars … In addition, pallets allow you to store board games and magazines.
So really, the only thing you’d have to really learn is how to upholster a sofa. Yes, that seems a bit intimidating at first, but think about what you can do once you learn this. The thing about learning is that when you’re uncomfortable, that means you’re actually learning something. So step out of that comfort zone!
It looks like they took six nice wood pallets, probably sanded them down to remove splinters and painted them white. A whitewash would look really cool too! I would probably stain the wood darker, because that’s more along my style and what I like. Or paint the wood black and have black cushions. So many possibilities!
Then measure your pallets and get the foam printing. You can buy foam from many retailers online or from craft stores, or check any local reupholstering stores and find out their suppliers. This is something you’re going to want to research for yourself. I also recommend purchasing high quality foam as it will last much longer.
To reupholster the the cushions, there’s are a bunch of tutorials out there. Or, your other option if you’re completely sewing challenged is to call in a professional and have the cushion covers custom made. Either way you do it, you’re one step closer to your own one of a kind sofa!
4°D had it right by making a couch out of pallets. My favorite thing about it is that underneath there’s plenty of storage area. You can put books, magazines, and board games. Everything that’s perfect for a leisure room! What do you think? Inspiring or nah, not so much?
