This is a project made by Koratina, it’s a sofa made ​​with pallets with the possibility to be transformed into a chaiselong. Koratina has also made a deckchair and a coffee table, but I will explain this other project in a future post. Next we show you how to build this magnificent piece of furniture.

As you can see we have some simple plans to start working with it. First, we need about 3 wooden pallets.

With the first pallet we are going to build the sofa seat, this must be kept intact and fill the gaps with pallet planks, so we’ll get an uniform surface. Also we are going to cover the sides with more tables to improve the end of the furniture.

To build the backrest we need more wooden planks from the pallets, we will extract some and configure a backrest as you can see in the pictures, then we’ll fix it to the back of the seat.

The next step is to add some wheels on the bottom. You can put 4 wheels, 2 wheels combined with 2 wooden blocks, or put only 4 wooden blocks, any solution is good.

Finally the last step which I consider the most important, to add the armrest on the side. This is essential because it not only functions as an armrest, it also helps to maintain the backrest fixed to the seat. To do it we just have to set multiple wooden planks until we reach the desired height, we use nails to fix the planks between them and also to fix the armchair to the backrest.

Apart from the advantages that I have mentioned, the armrest gives you the opportunity to transform the sofa into a chaiselong, we just have to add a cushion over it. Don’t forget also to paint it and add some cushions to the seat!

Thank you very much Koratina it’s an excellent project.
