Of course, if you look in any shipping truck or in the back of any retail store, you are likely to see pallets. Pallets ensure that all of the product can be moved together with ease. Today pallets are used for a wide variety of things, and shipping is not something that most people will ever do with a pallet on their own.
Many are using second hand pallets, those that have already been used for shipping purposes, to build different furnishings. Pallet furniture are not just used to make outdoor furniture; some people are even making indoor furniture with it. Side tables, platform beds and even coffee tables are being made from pallets. Furniture is not where unconventional use for pallets stops. Many people are people using pallets for gardens. Instead of having to weed a garden and space all of the plants apart just so, the pallets are used as freestanding gardens.
