Build a small pallet sofa: Build a 2-seater pallet sofa with armrests yourself | DIY project


Build a small pallet sofa for 2 people or as a 1 person pallet armchair to lie down and chill 😉

You don't always have to buy everything for house and garden, you can do a lot yourself. For a gazebo, a sofa for 2 people should be found. A finished sofa costs a lot of money, and the dimensions with a maximum width of 120 cm are a little rarer. Short decision do it yourself, from pallets. Get some inspiration on the Internet and now you can see and build my own small pallet sofa here. Have fun.

Preparation and material

A 2-seater is to be built from pallets, i.e. a mini pallet sofa with armrests for indoor use. The armrests shouldn't take up any of the seat, otherwise there would hardly be room for 2 people.

Here is my material list:

  • 2x pallet 120 cm x 80 cm
  • For the backrest 1x pallet 120 cm x 80 cm or another or remnants as I had them.
  • Universal screws 6,0 x 60mm and 4,0 x 40mm
  • Circular saw, jigsaw or a hand saw
  • Sandpaper or multi-sander
  • Electric planer for the edges (but does not have to be)
  • Color
  • Cordless Screwdriver

Construction time: around a comfortable 3 hours without painting

You can get used pallets for 5-10 euros or free of charge. Take a look around!

Build your own small pallet sofa for two people

build small pallet sofa DIY
These will be 2 side pieces

The "side parts" or armrests and feet are made from the first pallet. In the picture you can see what you have to remove from the pallet.

The center is marked here so that you can saw through with a circular saw or a jigsaw.

Rehearsal

The second pallet was placed on the two side panels as a seat. I think the seat height is good. We come to the backrest.

backrest

By chance I actually thought of this pallet remnant as firewood. This is not a Euro pallet!

backrest

You can nail this backrest yourself out of boards or use a third Euro pallet for it.
The dimensions of the “backrest” palette: 120 cm x 53 cm can also be 120 cm x 60 cm. You don't have to have the board with the wooden cubes. Left it on because it didn't bother me and kept the backrest tilted to try it + still looks a bit like a pallet (it's a pallet sofa).

ground backrest

Building a small pallet sofa The “backrest” is sanded and all sharp edges are lightly planed. Sanding the edges a little round would also suffice.

With a multi-sander you can sand the pallet parts smooth and round off the edges more quickly. If you have nothing, you have to use normal, coarser sandpaper. The Black and Decker multi-sander is perfectly fine and has great sanding. The fine dust filter is also great, it brings together a lot that would otherwise float in the air.

Tip: Use gloves and face mask against fine dust when sanding.

Glue cracks together

I used weld seams for possible rough cracks in the wood. I just had it on hand and gets hard to work on very quickly. Here you can also see a planed wooden edge.

glued crack

The weld seam is a 2-component adhesive. Granulate + liquid adhesive both together become hard and solid like a bomb.

The “side panels” of the pallet sofa each have a wooden board (remains of the pallet). This again provides for more height of the seat and for a straight stand where a few felt feet will be glued underneath later.

Rehearsal of the pallet sofa and seat test

Put the pallet sofa together as a test. I tried the most comfortable backrest position and depth. The way you see it here, it is the most optimal and you have the most comfortable comfort in the inclination of the backrest and seat width in depth. Think about the pallet cushions that will come up.

Live hack 😉

Find a suitable curve using a plate or bowl to make it easier to mark.

round corner

The “side panels” pallets have been rounded off. There is less risk of getting caught on the edges or hitting against them. It looks better too. You can use a jigsaw here or a handsaw + fretsaw for a clean, round cut. Then sand the edges.

Armrest pallet sofa

The “side parts” of the pallet sofa are screwed on to a wooden board (pallet scraps) for more stability and to widen the armrests. Don't forget to grind.

The coat of paint, a light shade of gray. I used abrasion-resistant wall paint for the interior

Finished pallet sofa for 2 people

The pallet sofa for 2 people is ready and it is really cozy. The seat width in the depth is very comfortable. Pallet cushions for the side parts are also added and make the cozy soft sofa complete.

All individual pallet sofa parts were screwed together with only 6 screws and can be quickly dismantled into individual parts.

Conclusion: build a small pallet sofa

Building a pallet sofa for 2 people is not difficult at all and I am very satisfied with the result. It's very cozy and stable at the same time. If you use it for outdoors, you should apply a wood glaze or weather-resistant paint or glaze (stain) here.
