This blog post all started last summer when my neighbour came round to my house to ask if he could have an old wooden pallet I had in the back garden (used to deliver some concrete the year before) of course I said “yes, please do take it!” For me it was just a piece of rotting wood in the back garden, but to him it seems it was a coffee table that he made using the pallet! And while I don’t have any pictures of my neighbours I have decided to bring you…
Top 10 DIY Pallet Tables
10 – So mean in green!
Simple, handy and great looking. For me, that is how I sum up this vibrant green pallet coffee table that just looks like it would fit well in the living room of any modern home.
9 – Breakfast at Tiffany’s
This charcoal black breakfast table made from 6 bulk standard pallets just goes to show how easy it is to make these! After all the are mostly just attached to each other with very little effort or work needed.
8 – ” Make sure you put a coaster down so you don’t stain the glass!”
The amazing polished effect on the wood, the simplicity of the pallet not being altered or cut in anyway, or the stunning stained glass in the gaps together all those things make this pallet table nothing sort on an EPIC WIN!
7 – God Save The Queen!
Featuring the flag of your own country on top of one of these is a great way to make it unique, while this one is the GB flag it doesn’t matter where you are from, painting a flag onto a pallet table like this looks amazing, but some flags are easier to paint than others.
6 – All but myself!
While these shipping pallets look stunning and have certainly been sanded down and polished to within an inch of their lives, the metal sides and shipping logos are all that was on it before it was touched! Not only stunning looking, but you can buy them via the image link!
5 – DIY 101.
Simple, amazing and not just a table, but a picnic one! This very simple and easy to copy design makes this one of the best ones I have ever seen. If it had been given a lick of paint and this might have been a lot higher placed, but still very good indeed.
4 – Testing, testing
Whether it is the test card style paint job on top of it, or the easy to follow design, or maybe the fact that it showcases the pallet gaps used as a handy storage area I just don’t know. The only thing I do know is that it looks amazing and I love it!
3 – The high end of design
While it might be hard to imagine this incredible wine/bottle rack/coffee table being a old wooden pallet originally (apart from the basic layout of it) it really was and goes to show what a lot of effort and a lot of time and skill can do for you when it comes to making pallet tables.
2 – Fit for a Queen indeed!
While it might be basic the oblong shape makes it perfect for a playing card paint job to be placed on it and that is exactly what this one has had done to it. Simple, stunning and well worth a go at trying to make your own!
1 – Going Natural
Not only is the top of this table made with recycled pallets, but the designer/maker has also used the gaps in the side of the pallet to make a small middle row just wide enough to insert some succulents! For me, this one was just nothing short of beautiful.
