Interior Design: Recycled wood crates and pallets make cool pieces of furniture

My sister who moved to New Caledonia last year with her boyfriend, has had quite an inspiring idea to furnish her place at a fairly low cost by using recycled wood crates and pallets (no IKEA shop in Noumea…), adding something to its interior design.

For instance she set up a couch out of some wood pallets for  her living room and created a  low sitting bench  for her terrace, using the same kind of material. She also made a coffee table by using four pallets, and turned some old crates into wall shelves. A cheap, functional, convertible and genuine kind of furniture to improve your interior design when you’re on a budget!

How about you? Have you already thought of using recycled wood crates and pallets to create some unique pieces of furniture for your home and improve your interior design? Would you recommend this?
