This DIY Pallet Coffee Table Is The Coolest Wood Project Ever
Gather round, gather round! Your friends are visiting and you’re all enjoying a good conversation and cups of coffee, all hot and freshly pressed. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a table, a pallet coffee table, of your own making adorn the very center of your living room, where anyone visiting can see your handiwork? Take a look at these simple steps to building your own wooden pallet table, and see just how plain and simple it really is to make that living room table you need.
Supplies You’ll Need For This Cool DIY Project:
- Abrasive Paper
- Caster wheels
- Carriage Bolts/Wood Bolts
1. Rearrange the Slabs for the Table Top
First things first, saw out a pallet to the size you wish for it to be used as and remove the nails that remain.
Use the excess picked slats, as well wood from another pallet, for the top of the table. Place them along evenly, the size of the gaps in-between being at your own discretion.
Hammer them into place with nails thereafter.
2. Saw Out and Attach Table Legs
Saw out from another separate pallet table legs for your coffee table.
Nail it at the bottom evenly, right after.
TIP: Use sandpaper to clean out the topside of your pallet coffee table.
3. Paint Everything
Before we start nailing everything further in place, paint first everything. Let it dry for awhile.
4. How to attach the casters and under-shelves
Now comes the finishing touch. If you wish to add to your pallet coffee table such as under-shelves and wheels, here’s how to go about it. Find a place for the under-shelves. I suggest going for the corners of the coffee table and then the middle part of the table to keep the legs secure.
Then, drill the holes for the bolts. I suggest using carrier bolts for this part of the project. Make sure they are secured nice and tight.
Like the under-shelves, drill the holes for the bolts for the casters. Make sure that the wheels are all aligned the same way, so they don’t move around.
Before flipping the coffee table over, check and make sure that all bolts and screws are tight one more time. Like my father always said, “if the bolt doesn’t move, the wrench doesn’t move either”.
5. Admire Your Finished Product
Now that all the work is past, admire your finished product, of course!
Place the newest addition to your coffee conversations in your living room and adorn it with flora and whatnot.
