So….as an avid collector and maker of things, I wondered what to do with a small wooden pallet stored in my garden shed. The last one was upcycled into a handsome footstool for my son and his lovely lady. Tired of stubbing my toes on the darn thing, I asked my daughter if she’d like a footstool. “Like Cam’s? Oooh, yes please!”
I needed to reduce the size of the wooden pallet by cutting the edges off.
So a couple of hours to fossick for the materials needed, a couple of sturdy handgun staples later and voila! The second upcycled footstool was created to great applaud. It cost nothing to make, except a few metal staples. Below is a step by step guide to making a footstool out of found bits.
