Make a Wood Pallet Coffee Table
Here is a great rustic looking table that will cost very little to make. This table would work well for the livingroom or den, or even the patio.
To make this coffee table, you will need 2 wood pallets, sandpaper and a gloss paint in your color choice. White paint works well with this rustic look.
First, check the pallets for loose nails or staples. Use a nail punch, hammer and pliers to remove them or pound them into the wood below the surface. Sand the surface of the wood with the belt sander and/or rough-grade sandpaper. Then use medium grade sandpaper to remove any splinters that are left.
Now it's ready to paint. Remembering that this is a rustic look, the paint doesn't have to completely cover. Just brush paint on all the wood surfaces.
To finish, stack one pallet on top of the other to form a coffee table. Not only do you now have a "green" coffee table, it can be used outdoors as well.
