I am so new to this DIY stuff but it's been very exciting! I've identified my goals, finished my plans and am now ready to execute the build. But before I do I'd really like to get your opinions on what I have so far. Me being so new to DIY I'm concerned that my goals are too aggressive or lofty.
Here is the inspiration and what we are looking to recreate:
This is my room as it exists now (with my newly bough Epson 8700ub YAY!)
And this is how we plan on stacking and constructing the pallets.
Note: The pallets used in the original picture are not as common here in the states. As such I will be using the more common 40x48x5 pallets.
My immediate questions are:
- What should I use to bind the pallets together? Wood glue? Nails? Screws?
- Should I take off the window banisters to make the back wall flush? Will that cause permanent damage to the wall?
- Is this layout weird? Would it make more sense to turn the dimensions sideways making it 80 width and 48 length relating a couch?
