Rustic Bed/Hallway Bench 1 Shelf & Storage Made with Pallet Wood
Handmade rustic bed/hallway bench made with pallet wood.
Size: W100cm x D22cm x H50cm approx.
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 lifting top using pallet wood and reclaimed timber and painted the inside a vintage willow colour to give it a cleaner and fresher look. The top is hinged with antique iron unequal butterfly hinges.
I then 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.
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.
