The pallet can be purchased in several ways: through supermarket warehouses and fairs where this material is used and disposed of, or through the internet, where it is also possible to find new pallets. Remember that it is important to pay attention to the quality of the material, as well as the pattern and size of the pallet, in order to create a standardized structure for your sofa.

In addition, it is essential that the wood is sanded and treated to prevent the appearance of termites. It is also important to remember that the amount of pallets that will be used will depend on the height of your sofa. If you prefer the conventional height, you will need to stack more than one pallet, and with three layers you can create a tall, well-structured sofa. However, if you have no problem using a shorter model, you can use one or two layers of this material.
