This pallet storage idea was right in front of me for MONTHS. Last summer I snagged a few pallets by a dumpster behind the building we own (hint, hint). I had visions of creative genius. The pallets sat against the garage wall next to the stacks of scrap lumber. And, then I got a pallet storage idea.
The pallets weren’t going anywhere. To keep the pallets dry and/or out of the sun, I had to store them in the garage. Up until this idea the pallets were just taking up space in the garage. That’ is until I gave these pallets a purpose. I positioned the pallets and began to sort the lumber. by size or type. I loved this pallet storage idea immediately.
The pallet contained the lumber and prevented the wood from tilting or falling over. I no longer had to stack the wood on the garage floor (taking valuable real estate). The pallets were not like Container Store worthy, but they were a quick fix to a storage issue.
