Pallet Coffee Table Tutorial

Hey there folks! How are you doing this bright and summery day? I just found out my German home (more of a duplex) will be expanding into the second floor apartment next door... A little confusing I know..... Anyhoosey, we are gaining a guest suite! Woo Hoo! I decided I wanted to move my gorgeous and fragile marble and mahogany coffee table to the guest area and decided to build the pallet table I have been dreaming of... 
A pallet table is PERFECT for us. It is large enough that guests sitting in every chair in our living room can reach the table to place their glasses on it or, kick their feet up. Another great thing about this table is the wood is so weathered, there is no way anyone could ruin it. Anymore dents and scratches would only add more character and charm to it. It is also strong enough to support someone if they felt like dancing on it....just sayin'...
This truly is a practical decision for our family. 

For a table that looks like ours, you will need 3 pallets. You can usually get these for free from most stores. They can cost a lot in Europe since Europeans recycle them instead of trashing them like in the states.
The first thing you are going to want to do is rip off the top pieces of wood and slide them next to each other so a glass won't fall through the open slats. European pallets are made really well....we ruined a few pallets trying to rip off the top pieces of wood, since they were hammered in with such long, strong nails. We decided for us it was easier to saw smaller pieces of wood (that split off of the extra pallets) and nail them in the open spaces. 
Hammer two pallets together and add your wheels. You can sand, paint or stain yours to the desired color...We sanded the rough edges and left ours natural. 

Pallet tables are great storage as well! I have ours filled with books that inspire us. 
For a party, you could slide it up against a wall, throw pillows on it and use it as a daybed. We push ours forward, throw pillows on the floor and use it as a table for movie nights. With a bunch of lanterns lit, I felt like we were at a picnic table watching a movie outside...it was pretty rad.
 Yummy...I love the Moose Munch from Harry and Davids...It's a great movie snack!
Check out this picture tray (that used to be black) that I painted silvery gold with left over paint from my tree stump side table. I put a gorgeous painting that I just bought for 2 Euro from a thrift shop in there and topped it with glass so it wouldn't get ruined. The vibrant and cheery colors are what I am loving this summer.

I have a ton of other projects we will be doing using pallets. I am so thrilled that both this pallet table and my tree stump table were so so cheap! The only thing that cost anything was the wheels that were 7 Euro a pop!
The grand total of this table was 28 Euro!
Any cool projects you are working on???

  4. Molly,
    I just love this pallet project you did. I can't help myself from coming back to this tutorial....if there is a such thing, I might be a pallet project-aholic :o)
    I've seen many other pallet projects, but this one really makes me feel like I could include this in my home. I'm thinking possibly in a guest suite. Keep up the great innovative ideas!!!! I'm always inspired when I come to your page.
