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 H49cm 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 made the lifting top using pallet wood and reclaimed timber while I used reclaimed ply wood for the bottom and painted it a vintage willow colour to give it a cleaner and fresher look. The top is hinged with antique rusted iron unequal butterfly hinges.
I then gave the bench a coat of light oak wax to give it a rustic look and 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.
