Repurposing damaged or discarded pallets has been a hot trend lately and sites like Pinterest have numerous photos of highly creative pallet projects. Most industrial pallets, however, have been treated at some point with pesticides and other chemicals to protect the wood from insects, mold, or rot. So, when attempting a do-it-yourself project with pallets, unless you know the exact source of the pallet, we suggest repurposing pallets for outdoor use only. And, with Halloween upon us, used pallets can be perfectly incorporated into your spooky exterior display.

So, whether you want to be the haunted house on the block with boarded-up windows and an old, rickety fence or you simply want to add some festive cheer to your walkway, wooden pallet slats can be used individually or together to create the desired look. We found some very effective and scary examples to share with you. For more images, head over to Pinterest. And, for a longer discussion about repurposing pallets, please read this article on recycling, upcycling, and downcycling pallets.
