Welcome to Deja New Palletable Creations.
Deja New Palletable Creations is a home based business on the Central Coast NSW recycling, yep, you guessed it, pallet timber, and giving it new life in the form of custom made indoor/outdoor furniture, decorative, practical and utility items for inside or outside your home, your workplace, your shed, or wherever you find a need.
This business has been up and running since January 2018. We were inspired to get started by all the interesting posts online about using pallet timbers for all manner of things, most of the info which is predominantly from the USA.
We thought by getting involved it would be a great way to make use of something that is otherwise just going to be reduced to waste and end up as landfill here in Australia. It’s not only environmentally damaging, it’s such a shame to see all that good timber just being dumped, especially when you consider the energy, and subsequent CO2 released into the atmosphere, that has gone into creating the pallets in the first place.
By recycling the timber, it will help balance the emissions and with long term use, perhaps even become carbon neutral. But what about the energy we use to make our creations, I hear you ask, well, we use sustainable energy, Greenpower (a Government initiative for using renewable energy), for the production of our creations and only use eco-friendly water based products, products that don’t release toxic amounts of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into the atmosphere. And from every sale we also contribute to the conservation of native wildlife and their habitats through Plant a Tree for Me, run by the National Parks & Wildlife Foundation for the conservation of native wildlife and their habitats.
We design and build our products to last, we don’t want to see them ending up on the trash heap because of flimsy manufacture or end up as landfill if they haven’t been up to the task, unlike most of the cheap mass-produced products on the market today.
Of course we’re in business to stay in business, we have to make it sustainable. But having said that, our profits are minimal, we want our creations to be affordable, and we want to build a good reputation for what we do. There is an old adage though, You always get what you pay for, and that is certainly true for cheap nasty products, they’re cheap for a reason, not only because they’re made in countries that pay poverty wages, but also because they’re made to be pumped out as quickly as possible and to turn over a profit as quickly as possible with little thought for quality and sustained long-term use.
If you’d like to keep track of what we’re up to then we always appreciate your likes and follows :)

A BIT ABOUT PALLETS
From a study conducted in 2012 over 140,000 tonnes of pallets were beelined for landfill in the Sydney area alone. What a complete and utter waste! With a bit of skill and creativity the timber from pallets can be turned into something besopke, practical, functional, comfortable and desirable which looks great around your home or in your workplace.
The warmth of the timber when recycled and turned into something useful and attractive adds character, charm and appeal to the setting for which it might be used. And with a creation made out of recycled pallet timber it adds rustic charm and a unique character that's not possible with brand new milled timber.
We only use pallets that are heat treated, nothing with nasty chemicals in it, and are predominantly pine, so they're safe for all purposes. And all of our creations are finished with eco friendly water based products too. Or, if you prefer, we can sell them raw so you can finish it yourself.
If you require something unique, we also create custom designs to your specifications designing it on computer first enabling you to see beforehand a representation of the finished physical product to ensure it's exactly what you want.
Pine is a beautiful timber and creating furniture from it, given the right treatment for the right surroundings, can look amazing and will always delight and be the centre of attention and will last for many years.
Eco awareness is a part of our lives, and most of us like to play an active part in it, whether that is simply being responsible with our waste, to being fundamentally involved. Recycling pallet timber is another step in being kind to the environment and what better way than by turning it into something we can enjoy and that fits into our everyday lives, and looks good too. With our creations you can do more than just take satisfaction in knowing that the product you purchase is an eco-friendly sustainable product, it displays to your friends and family about how you care for the environment, and not only that, they can appreciate and enjoy the benefits of it too 🙂
Follow us as we create new projects, share in your ideas and if there's something you see that you like, or if there's something you want created from scratch, then let us create something wonderful for you too and help do a bit more in helping save the environment.
Although the timber we use is essentially secondhand, that does not mean our care and attention to detail is too.
In this day and age of cheap mass market manufacturing, it's difficult to find something out of the ordinary, something that not only looks good, but serves a purpose. That's where industries like ours fills the gap, getting back to the roots of handmade and crafted with pride.
If you want something that is built for quality and uniqueness with style and character, not built to a mass market price, then we will be able to offer what you want 🙂
