Recycling old items and giving them new life is becoming increasingly popluar these days. Especially as we all become more aware of our impact on the environment and with the cost of living ever rising. Re-using pallets is one of the hottest trends in the 'upcycling' movement.  A simple wooden pallet can be transformed into a multitude of magnificent items with a little imagination, a splash of paint and a touch of hard work. Outdoor seating is just one of the many things pallets can be re-used for and we have put together some fantastic inspirational ideas:
