DIY Pallet Table….
A miter saw! This beast of a tool will come in handy so often. It may be a bit of an investment, we bought this exact model and have had ours 11 years. It had been through building a house and about a million DIY projects. It has been well used and is still going strong!
Reciprocating Saw– This bad boy is a great addition to your tool collection. If you ever desire to attempt cutting a pallet, this is the tool that will save your life. We use ours so often. It is a handy little devil.
These are amazing tools to have if you are looking to do a pallet project in the future. The reciprocating saw has to be the most important tool when tearing them apart.
Now, back to the project at hand.
One day I was perusing my go to Pinterest and found a picture of a pallet table I liked.
- I grabbed two pallets from my pile and screwed them together to make the base. Simple enough yes?
- Once the pallets were screwed together, I set them up on their side. This is how they are going to sit in my house.
- I grabbed my 2 by 6 and measured it to fit on top of the pallets.
- I then took the 2 by 6 to the garage.
- I measured how long I wanted the top to be. I wanted it to overlap the pallets by about 6 inches so I measured accordingly.
- I then marked and cut the wood with, according to my not so crafty sister(self proclaimed) “the up and downy saw” or the miter saw. Whichever you prefer.
- Then it was a simple as placing the tops on and screwing them in. I did need to get some help from my husband on this because according to him, I don’t have enough….hmmm lets say, bum behind me to screw them in. I’m sure if I had drilled a pilot hole, I could have, but I was being lazy and he was sitting there so strong!
Sometimes I try to get a nice picture, but the pillows just wont cooperate, you know? It couldn’t be that sweet thing laying in the foreground:)
Halloween Clipboard Decor– With Free Printables
For Halloween it was dressed up with creepy skeletons, neutral pumpkins, and all sorts of Halloween goodness.
This spring it was styled simply for my spring farmhouse home tour. Something about blank chalkboards as a backdrop make me so happy.
This pallet sofa table was a simple project that has made a huge impact in my home. I love to style it in so many different ways. By adding soft and feminine touches to an otherwise rough and rustic table, you can create an interesting combination of textures and add interest to the area.
Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to see what is going on at Twelve On Main.
Have a great day and remember….
