Wood Pallet Workbench

Over at Little House of Four, Katie wanted to build her own workbench for the garage.  Since her husband comes across used wood pallets often in his work, pallets seemed to be the quickest and cheapest option for building the bench.


Katie cut pallets in half to make the tabletop and shelf, then used old barn wood from her brother for the legs.  She even added rope handles on the sides and locking caster wheels.  I’m impressed, Katie!

Wood Farmhouse Vanity

Judi from The 1829 Farmhouse has been through a serious bathroom renovation in her 182-year-old home. The space needed a vanity that was fitting of its vintage farmhouse style, so Judi designed a “workbench” vanity to be built from the 300-year-old wood that had been pulled from the bathroom wall.

Wood from Walls

After some deliberation, Judi stained the top and painted and distressed the bottom of the vanity. The porcelain faucet handles make the perfect drawer pulls for the vintage style. Since this house has been a part of Judi’s husband’s family for years (and years and years!), it is really cool how they have been able to reuse some of the original construction in their renovations.
