I stripped off the glass top, disassembled and repaired the table legs and created an Octagonal Pallet Patio Table. We think this recycling project added a lot of style to an outdated, run down, but functional table.
Octagonal Pallet Patio Table:
First, we did a disassembly of the original glass-topped table. Along with removing the glass, the legs were disassembled, sanded, cleaned and then coated them with two coats of Rust-oleum 2X Ultra Cover gloss black spray paint.
I used Rustoleum 2X Ultra Cover Gloss black paint as it is both a paint and primer in one can. Additionally, it covers well, and it also works on plastic. Part of the table has plastic clips and retainers, so that worked great. I used pallet remnants that I joined with wood biscuits and glue before cutting out in an octagonal shape. I had to recall some old Geometry lessons from my school days to work out the dimensions to get it to look even. Next, I applied two coats of Cabot’s walnut stain, followed by two coats of Cabot’s clear satin polyurethane. I didn’t sand it down too smooth; I wanted it to retain a bit of its rustic charm. We’re really happy with the outcome of our Octagonal Pallet Patio Table.
