Kid's Pallet Table

This weekend my husband and I worked on building a table for our two year old son. We made it out of pallets - surprise, surprise! :) Are you getting tired of seeing my pallet projects? I hope not. I have a hard time passing up free wood, so you'll probably be seeing a lot more pallet wood around here.

Here is the basic frame my husband put together. The legs are actually deck spindles. 



The base of the table is 21 x 21 inches, the height is 22 inches, and the tabletop (sorry we forgot to take a picture of that step) is 23 x 23 inches. 

Once it was put together, I stained the top in dark walnut and painted the aprons and legs white. 


We already had the chairs, but I stained the seat and painted the rest white to match the table. 



So cute, right!?! Our son loves it! It was totally worth the $8 it took to make!

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:

  41. Oh how I love that rough cut wood! My hubs just told me he can keep the broken one's from work, so I see some cool projects coming my way, too! It might take a few pallets to gather enough wood that is ok to use, but I can wait!

    Thanks for your Fridays Unfolded. I have enjoyed watching it grow!

  85. Anybody? Sanding? Is that part of this process? If it is how do you keep the wood looking so salvaged? If not, how do you avoid tons of splinters?

    ReplyDelete
  86. SOOOOOO cute, Melissa!! Once your little boy outgrows it, I bet you could use it as an end table, too.

  87. You have inspired me with this table....I had to make my own!

  89. I have been looking for a table for my 2 year old for Xmas. I can not find any styles that I like! They're all plastic, or cheapy looking. Or worse, I find one I like from pottery barn that costs an arm and a leg. THIS is what I really want! I'm sooo going to see if my husband will make this for her instead of buying them. I'm thinking dark wood top and dark red bottom & chairs?
