Do you like the armchair of the photo? I only needed four pallets to make it, but if you want the same result we are going to need identical pallets, with boards on both sides. Now I explain you the how to instructions.
Firstly we are going to need four pallets as the one on the image .
We’ll take 2 of them and cut them as is showed on the image, these are goinf to be the sides of the armchair.
To make the backrest cut a third pallet also like I show you on the picture.
Then we’ll join the 3 pallets forming a ” U ” with them.
To unite the pallets between them use small steel brackets and some screws , with 4 steel brackets it would be enough.
Now we are going to make the seat of the armchair, it is necessary to remove and cut the last pallet as you see in the pictures.
With the pieces that we have got previously we’ll form the seat that you see in the picture, it will be like a smaller pallet with an optimal size to fit inside the “U” structure.
We’ll introduce it. If it doesn’t fits correctly we should use sandpaper on the sides until it fits inside the structure.
Again we’re going to fix this little pallet to the rest of the pallets using 4 steel brackets and some screws. We should do it under the seat so then the steel brackets could’n be seen.
And to finisht it we’ll make the armchair cushions. They can be recycled, made by ourselves or purchased from an upholsterer. You only have to note the dimensions of the armchair inside, and then cut the foam with the proper size.
Here you can see the end result of this armchair, we have decided to upholster it in a red color to match it with the living room wall. There are thousands of possible combinations, you only have to put in play your imagination !
Here you can see a 3D animation with the instructions and the result:
