We've shared some interesting construction ideas for shipping pallets in the past, including a couch and a workspace, but this new one is easier to tackle. You can build comfortable stadium-style seating for your home theatre on the cheap.
You'll definitely need a fair amount of space to set this one up, and you'll need about 12 pallets to form the seating and the cushions to make the pallets comfortable. They look like standard shipping pallets, but they've been painted to match the intended decor of the space. Plus, once they're all assembled and attached to one another, you can slide books, magazines and DVDs into the spaces on the side for a little added storage.
The whole space is definitely a little "designer chic", what with the pallets on the wall to mount the TV and everything (not bad), but you get the general idea. If you have the space and don't want to shell out lots of money for lots of cushy seating and a raised floor, this is a great, green way to approximate it for much less money. What do you think?
