The best DIY hacks are made with stuff that’s just lying around — and wooden shipping pallets certainly make the cut. Here’s how to turn one into a hanging outdoor chair with just some cord and a bit of elbow grease.
Even if you’re not a DIY ninja, you should still be able to handle this project — all it requires is some basic woodworking like sawing and drilling. And, best of all, all you need is one or two wooden shipping pallets and some rope — these particular instructions recommends paracord — and you’ve got a nice place to sit and read as this warm weather begins to become a more regular occurrence.
The best part about the chair is that it contours nicely to your body, and you can adjust it any way you want — you can make it lean back farther or make the seat dip lower so it’s comfortable for you (and most conducive to what you use the chair for — sleeping, reading a book or kicking back with your laptop and your favourite software blog).
