Here's a Great Way to Make Your Own Stylish, Space-Saving Pallet Sliding Door

Pallets have been all the rage these days, and it isn't difficult to understand why since they are incredibly versatile. They have been considered utterly useless and wasteful until people started to realize they could use these purposeless pieces of wood to create all sorts of things for their home and garden. A quick google search for pallet furniture will yield countless results for many fascinating designs. If you can make it with regular lumber that you buy at the store, you can probably substitute the wood with disassembled pallets instead. There are two main advantages that stand out with using pallets for building. For one, it saves the environment because they would otherwise end up in a landfill creating more waste and a negative impact to the already disturbed ecosystem. And secondly, it saves you a ton of money since most stores and companies are eager to get rid of them, since is saves them from needing to transport as many pallets to the dump. Some people have even gone so far as to create an entire house built primarily from pallets and other salvaged material. As you can see, the sky is the limit with these versatile waste products.
