DIY pallet furniture

So I have been thinking I am ready for some changes in the house.
We need furniture in a few rooms but have $0 to spend on new furniture when we have some that semi suits our needs.
I also love to have unique, one of a kind pieces that please my eye. Lately I have noticed a few pallet pieces that have piqued my artistic side.
This layout of pallets will work perfectly as platforms for the boys mattresses, meeting corner to corner, not butting up against each other. Tyler truly is too big for their twin bunk bed, he sleeps on top & last time I was up there I was sure if I moved wrong it would move dangerously. Putting their mattresses this way would leave a square of the pallets open in the corner for reading light, books, & Legos will be banned. Plus, the spaces below they can store books in instead of just dropping them on the floor as they fall asleep.

Next up, an entertainment center for our old heavy television. We were given an entertainment center but the TV is too large for the opening & we are using it as book & toy storage in the boys room.
Right now the TV is on an antique stand table that is strong enough but just barely big enough to hold the TV & nothing else. The computer we run the TV from and all the accoutrements do not fit anywhere but on the side leaving all of the wires & cords exposed & oh my I hate seeing them. I have all of our blankets & quilts built up under the table to hide them. So this is a coffee table idea that I want to mimic and make into an entertainment center, without casters & wider.

Now to move to the yard!
We have no furniture in our backyard & it’s a large backyard with a huge tree that provides shade all day long over the grass & our back patio. It’s so stinkin’ hot here in the summer we’ve found we don’t want to even think of eating outside. But, I am sure there will be many times in spring  & fall that we want to eat outside. There are times we want to go sit out in the yard & just have no seating. I plan to use my tree & it’s shade!

Double the size of the above swing for a hanging bed of sorts to hang from the tree.

And for a good individual swing,

There are a ton of different pallet chairs out there. They say they take 2 pallets each but I am thinking 3 pallets could make 2. Or 4 pallets for 2 chairs & a little table but I would like a larger table like this:

I haven’t found an actual pallet dining table that I like so I think this larger table would do plus a few other smaller ones not on casters.

I guess that means I need about 100 pallets ;o)
I will definitely be keeping my eye out on Craigslist & maybe even call local businesses that I have seen give away pallets.

I am really wanting to make this a reality.
Really, really.
