Pallet Table

While inspiration surfing the other day, I came across this awesome picture of a pallet table!


I thought a table like this would look perfect on our little patio. It just so happens that we're having our roof replaced at the church where I work. And guess what I had access to.....................PALLETS!! Lots of them! All the shingles had to come on something, right?!? We took home 3 of them, my husband made a run to Home Depot for other supplies and he started making me a table.  

First he started by cutting 4 x 4's to the height we wanted the table. 


Next he removed the top and bottom board on the back side of the pallet. 


This allowed him to drill holes at each corner of the pallet and through each leg. Then he connected the legs to the table with lag bolts. 




All four legs attached. 



Next, he screwed the boards he removed back on, cutting out pieces to fit around the legs. 


Here's our finished pallet table!!!I sanded it down and cleaned it. Now we just have to seal it.

  9. I love it! This would look so terrific in many different settings: rustic, beachy, or garden theme, to name a few. It could be left as is or painted or stained. So many options! And soooo budget friendly. Great job! Kudos to you and the hubby.

  17. Fabulous! I have that same picture pinned in my account and am currently making a bench. I just got the "legs" cut this morning and have been thinking about how to attach them to the pallet. Now, thanks to you, I know exactly what to do! Awesome! I also made a headboard and a shelf from old pallets. Love 'em!
