Upcycle a pair of shipping pallets to create a budget-friendly umbrella stand for an entryway or mudroom.
In order to secure the front and back panels to each other, you’ll need to cut braces from unused planks. Once measured to the width of the front and back panels, cut to size using circular saw. Position the plank perpendicular to the front and back panels, then fasten it in place using 2” nails and hammer.
The side panels will be cut at 45-degree angle. This gives the storage box a geometric wedge-like shape. Use a straight edge or another plank of wood to create a perfect line across the planks, then mark using a pencil.
