Depending on the size and height of the lounge, you will need up to ten pallets.
Screw the garden lounge together from Euro pallets
Two pallets are screwed onto each other for the lying areas. If the lounge is to be higher, use three pallets. The screwed parts are put together and also screwed. Another unit is attached at the front for the kink.
Then the back parts are attached to the prepared seat. If the pallets are too big for this, simply cut them to the desired length with the saw.
So that you can lie or sit comfortably in the lounge, make cushions from at least six centimeters thick foam. It is covered with a cover made of awning fabric.
Even if a garden lounge made of Euro pallets can withstand wind and weather, you should protect it from cold, snow and rain in winter. Since the lounge is very heavy, it cannot be brought into the house. Therefore buy special covers for garden furniture.
