Upcycle wooden pallets to make a children's hut!

They can have fun all summer, but also all year long ! Even in winter under the snow ! Just remove the fabric if you made a roof with fabric ! Or make a rigid roof! It's up to you !

Here's how to build a hut from wooden pallets :

You will need :

- About 8 to 9 wooden pallets if you also think to make a floor

- A hammer

- Anti-rust nails

- A screwdriver and screws

- An electric saw

- An electric sander

- 4 hinges

- Outdoor paint (you choose the colors)

- A paintbrush and / or paint rollers

- And some fabrics or boards to make a hard roof

How to do :

1) Make sure all the nails and staples are removed from the pallets and sand all the wood to prevent the children from getting injured. Because the wood of pallet is raw and rough.

2) If you plan to do a floor in the hut, use a pallet to make the floor and ...

3) Mount 3 walls on the edge of the floor with 3 other wooden pallets

4) Then cut the windows in the top parts of the wooden pallets, on each side of the walls.
