Would you like to get a unique look in your room? But couldn't you find the perfect table to fit in your needs? Let's create your own style coffee table from pallets and spend less than $30. Are you curious how can you do it? Check and enjoy this tutorial! :)
Materials needed for this project:
- 2 EURO pallets
- 4 metal legs
- Safety tools
- Power tools: jigsaw, sander & screwdriver
- Stain & rag (why wipe stain than to brush it?)
Need half of one pallet:
Firstly, you need only half of the first wood pallet. Then need 4 narrow slats for the top. For this work, use a jigsaw than a handsaw to make sawing easier.
IMPORTANT:Measure carefully the place between fix slats because it could be different by each side. With correct measuring, you could avoid any fit problem.
Saw four narrow slats for the top:
Use some planks from the second pallets. For this table, we need 5 full sized slats and a narrow one
Sand the surface completely:
I think you're also probably thinking: “
So yes, sanding wood can get boring… BUT the final result compensate for that!
For sanding work, we used 80 grit paper (The higher the number, the finer the grade. Lower-numbered grades denote coarser sandpaper.)

Stain the surface:
The most entertaining part of woodworking is staining! YES! I love it.
Fix all slats with nails & screws:
Almost the last step to fix all detached slats to the top and the bottom with nails and screws.
We used screws fixing the bottom planks - the connection is even stronger!
Attach the legs:
We changed the usual casters to metal legs. It gives a classy look for the coffee table!
