Making a Pallet Sofa – Foam Cushions For Pallet Sofas
Upcycling is a great way of reusing objects and making them useful once more. A pallet sofa is a great example of this. Take some old wooden pallets, give them a little TLC and top them with some custom foam cushions – perfect!
We’ve found a great tutorial on how to make pallet sofas and we’d like to share it with you! Following that, we’ll talk about how you can make it extra comfy with custom made foam cushions.
Making a Pallet Sofa – What You’ll Need
Pallet sofas are mostly used in outdoor areas (so make sure you’ve got one of them to begin with).
Although, that’s not to say that you can’t use them indoors. We’ve seen indoor sofas and even bedframes made from pallets before.
This upcycled seating makes for a great addition to any outdoor area. You’ll be glad to know that they’re generally cheaper than traditional outdoor furniture pieces. What’s more, they’re great fun to make! If you’re looking for a project to carry out this Summer, this could well be for you.
Before you begin building, you’ll need:
Wooden Pallets – How many you’ll need will depend on how the size of the pallet sofa you intend to make and how high you’ll want it to be.
A Saw – A hand saw will do, but power tools will naturally be quicker.
Sandpaper – You’ll want to sand down the pallets to remove splinters. The quality of the pallets you choose to use will determine how much sanding is required.

This video will give you a good idea of how to construct your pallet sofa. This isn’t the only way to construct one though. There are plenty of tutorials available online, so pick one which you prefer the most.
Pallet Sofa Cushions From Foam Factory
Now that you’re done with the building, you’ll likely notice that you’re missing one vital part. Foam Factory specialises in foam cut to size. We can create custom foam cushions for you!
Placing an order is easy and you can receive your cushions as quickly as the next working day!
First, choose from our selection of foam templates. We have 12 to choose from including a custom option for extra shapes.
Then, input your required measurements. Make sure they are big enough to cover your pallet sofa.
Next, choose your required foam. You can choose from 3 different types of foam. A firm, medium and soft. Each has a description that outlines their suitability.
After this, you can choose to add dacron and stockinette to your cushions. Dacron is a wadding that fills out cushion covers adding extra loft. Stockinette is a netting that makes it easier for you to insert and remove cushions from their covers.
All that’s left for you to do now is place your order. Don’t forget that Foam Factory offers a next working day delivery service. Place your order before 11:00 AM Monday – Thursday to take advantage of this.
