Have you been paying attention to all the cool things that you can do with wooden pallets and pallet wood? There are so many options out there that if you have a chance to get your hands on some wood pallets, it can be difficult to figure out where to start. A pallet fence, however, can be an excellent ds.
Pallet fences will help you keep your privacy, and they’ll help you make a great statement about your sense of style. Your home is going to look great, and your pallet privacy fence has a lot of options to go along with it. You may not think so with only pallets to help, but you’d be surprised.
What we love about these DIY pallet fence ideas is they show how amazing simple it is to build a pallet fence instead of using traditional fence panels. With a little creativity and some wood pallets you’ll soon be one of the up and coming pallet fence pros.
The Cost of A Pallet Fence
The great thing about pallets is that most places will give them to you for free. That’s because they’re just pieces of wood that start to wear out over time and that those businesses have no use for them. So they give them away to whoever wants them and you can do anything with them.
If you don’t live in an area where you can get pallets for free or if you can’t make the fence yourself, it could cost you something. Chances are you won’t have to pay too much because the pieces are inexpensive for anyone, even in larger quantities. That includes professionals as well.
In general, you may spend a couple of hundred dollars on this type of fence (if you have to hire a professional to put it together and install it for you). You may only spend a few dollars on a full load of pallets and some nails to put it together.
Designing Your Pallet Fence
Getting your pallets from a stackable unit to an actual pallet fence is going to require a little work. You’re going to need some skills (though not a whole lot) and some imagination. If you don’t have the ability to see what you want to create … well, it’s going to be a lot harder than you might think.
Luckily for you, there are plenty of different ways that you can create a great pallet fence. The best thing is to just use your imagination and create something that’s totally unique. Let yourself run wild with those pieces and see what you come up with. You may just surprise yourself.
The key is using everything you have from the pallets themselves to different colors of paints and stains. Before you know it, you’ll have a fence that looks like it took a long time to build, and it will only take you a short amount of time (and money).
Of course, if you’re not exactly the fence design type, you’ll want to check out some of the great options we’ve found for you. Here, there are plenty of different looks and styles to the pallet fences and each one is going to be super easy to do. It’s up to you just how elaborate you might want to get (or how simple).
