How To Install a DIY Pallet Wood Floor
I love starting new DIY home improvement projects, especially when you get to do some repurposing or upcycling! Whether you’re starting from the ground up with your own homestead, or just looking for an interesting way to spruce up your home, you’ll probably be considering some new flooring. On Imgur, there’s a photo journal that follows one family’s flooring project with re-purposed pallet slats. This is a great project, since it is pretty easy to find pallets, ever for free! Just remember to use the heat treated (HT) pallets to avoid ones treated with nasty chemicals. Check out this excellent guide to pallet safety.
Disassembling the pallets is probably the most time-consuming and labor-intensive part of the project, but it’s imperative that you take care with this part. All nails have to be removed from the pallet slats, and they need to be kept as intact as possible. For the best end result, you’ll probably need to have access to word working equipment to make all of the slats uniform in thickness and smooth, but installing is a cinch.
