Alex blogs at Happy, Healthy & Domestic. She explains how this project started: “My dad was in town visiting and he needed to pick up some flooring from Lumber Liquidators. While we were out back pick it up, we noticed a pallet in the trash and a bunch of wood to the side. We asked if we could have the pallet and 4 of the wood pieces and they said no problem.”
Back at home, Alex took wood from one side of the pallet to fill in the gaps on the other side. She cut down the wood pieces so that they would be the appropriate size for table legs, and attached them to each corner of the pallet. After the table was built, Alex did a lot of sanding before she called it finished. The end result? A rustic outdoor table that was completely free! Impressive.

At Funky Junk Interiors, Donna says, “I did it! I finally got rid of a store bought coffee table to make way for a quirky junk styled pallet wood coffee table I made myself.”
Donna explains that the cost of this table was absolutely free, since she made it using a found pallet and other fun industrial items she’d collected. Now Donna’s coffee table really reflects her style and personality. I love the weathered patina and addition of the unusual items along the side, like the faucet!

After getting their hands on nine pallets, Rob and Megan from Our Pinteresting Family have been on a pallet wood building spree. They also happened to receive this back from an old bench from a neighbor. To some it may just look like a rusty, broken-down mess.
However, Rob and Megan saw the potential to create something beautiful by combining the rustic pallet wood and decorative iron. The detailed scrollwork of the bench provides an interesting contrast to the raw look of the pallet wood and is a great focal feature for the table.
