To make an outdoor sofa out of pallets you need the following materials and tools.
- Chipboard screws (200 mm and 50 mm)
- Furniture wheels
- Battery screwdriver and/or drill
- Bit set (various attachments for the drill)
Turn over a pallet and place it with the top on the ground. The undercarriage now protrudes.
Place a pallet on the first pallet. Put the second pallet with the top side up. In the normal way.
Then apply 200 mm screws in all four corners. From the top towards the pallet underneath. We recommend fixing at least 2 screws per corner.
Then put the backrest against the undercarriage. Tip: slide the undercarriage against a wall. This way, the sofa will not move when you fix the backrest.
Screw on the backrest. Tighten 3 200 mm screws per block. You can use 50 mm screws for the boards. Also for the planks we recommend to fix 3 screws per plank.
Do you want a movable sofa? Thanks, you can also fix furniture wheels under the pallets. We recommend that you only place 2 furniture wheels at the front. This will give the sofa a comfortable angle, and the sofa is also easier to move.
Tip: sitting on pallets obviously does not provide the best comfort. Add some cosy cushions for optimal comfort.
