Rustic Bed/Hallway Bench 1 Shelf 1 Drawer Made with Pallet Wood
Size: W104cm x D22cm x H50cm approx.
Handmade rustic bed/hallway bench made with pallet wood.
I made this bench using pallet wood.
After I dismantled the pallet and cut the wood to size I sanded it down extensively to give it a smooth finish.
I then put the bench together using glue and screws, which I covered with wooden nails.
I also made the drawer using pallet wood and reclaimed plywood and painted the inside a vintage sage colour to give it a cleaner and fresher look..
I gave the bench a coat of light walnut stain and several coats of bees wax to protect it.
The bench shows several signs of wear and tear having being made with reclaimed timber, as well as a few nails here and there from the original pallet, but I think that this only adds to its character.
Also, the bottom of the drawer was made with reclaimed plywood, therefore there are a few small gaps on the sides; yet this does not effect the drawers' functionality.
I think that, while this bench can have many uses, it would be perfect as a bed or hallway bench, giving the space a rustic quirky look as well as some handy storage.
