Finally. A post about our pallet table project!
We went down to phx this weekend to do the build because N's dad had all the equipment we needed. [it would have taken WAAAAYYY longer to do the build up here even if we had a table saw]. About halfway through we were asking ourselves why we decided that doing a project outside when it's 115 degrees out was a good idea...it was just plain HOT! But despite the heat, we got it done [with lots of water breaks] and they turned out AWESOME!!!!!!!!
Check out some photos of the build below: (and check out the "brag post" of this build featured on the Ana White blog!)
Cut a little here.
Measure some there.
Stack 'em up.
Not sure what we would have done without the nail gun. It made it so much easier.
Cut a little more.
The design details for
me to remember you.
The finished product! [i will get a photo of them in our bedroom soon. the lighting when i was writing this post was terrible but i wanted to get it posted so you'll have to wait. they look even better next to the bed!
Build info: We used the wood from 3 pallets to make 2 of these tables with about 6 planks left over [for another project]. Because of the weird board measurements we ended up ripping the boards to a reasonable width before building. It made them more uniform. We used a nail gun to attach the pieces and finished them with a dark wood stain that my in-laws had in their garage. We got the design inspiration here.
We had so much fun doing this project and when were done both N and I were wishing we had the space for a table saw and nail gun for more projects like these. This definitely won't be the last build we do!
