Pallets are very popular right now for creating practically anything you like, from wall covers, furniture and accessories. They work well for a rustic look in furniture or incorporated in a particular design. Pallets may be purchased or if you are as lucky as we were, you may even get them free. We have had this pallet forever and it has seen it's fair share of paint drips, crayon scribble, dirt and everything else. It started as a back drop for some of my blog photos, but over time, it just got plain ugly because of lack of care. We have used pallets in the past; when we created our mudroom space, we used half of a pallet to give our seat height by placing under the bench and we also made pallet night stands on here.
I decided it was time to fix our pallet and create something useful with it. I asked Mr. M to give me the sander and instead he sanded the pallet completely. It was super smooth and all the marks were pretty much gone. He added legs to it with some extra wood that was in the garage.
The legs are of a different kind of wood, so it was not going to stain the same, that's when I decided to paint it white and to stain the top.
After the paint and stain, I waxed it to give it a nice polish.
For this project we used:
4 x 4 for legs (left over in garage
nails or screws
drill or hammer
wood furniture wax
