DIY sofa made of shipping palettes

This DIY sofa idea has caught my eye on a few sites, most notably for its versatility and ingenuity. Two wooden palettes and a few power tools later, you've got yourself a unique and inexpensive seating/sleeping option customizable to just about any space. This is upcycling at its finest!

Here is the before:

For a less shabby chic feel, I like the look of painting the palettes to suit your decor. Depending on the size of your palettes you could fit a twin size mattress, use foam with custom fabric or cover them with floor cushions (urban, world market and le souk all have some cool options).
