Cheery Pallet Potting / Craft Table:
Initially, I came up with a plan to build a potting table but wanted it to be multi-purpose. Then, I made a few changes to my plan and created this work table to keep my brushes and paints organized instead of all over the floor.
To begin, I broke down five pallets but used an upper deck of one for the back portion of the table. Next, I created a frame for the lower shelf and another for the upper shelf using the stringer boards. You could substitute 2x4" boards as well. Then, I cut four legs to length and installed them to the table top and the lower shelf. I clad the work surface and shelf with plywood. Finally, I painted the frame white, and then the slats in a rainbow of colors. I think it turned out great, and this Cheery Pallet Potting / Craft Table going to be very handy!
