I have never done a project out of wood before. But I saw a sand table on Pinterest and wanted to try to make my own Kids Pallet Picnic/Sand Table for my grandkids. I got a few pallets from the local farm supply store that they were going to throw away and used them for this project.

Here's my version of a Kids Pallet Picnic/Sand Table:

I used a reciprocating saw to cut the nails away and took the best boards. I found sets of instructions for a couple of picnic tables and tweaked them to the size that I wanted my table to be. I sanded and primed roughly 20 boards since I didn't know how many I would need. I was worried about the weight of the sand and the boards, so I decided to go lighter. I purchased a sheet of plywood for the bottom of the box and lid.

I made the box, spray painted it, and stapled in some landscape fabric. I also drilled some holes in the bottom for drainage. I then figured out how tall I needed the legs to be for their ages of 3 and 5. I decided because of the weight, I should put the legs under the table instead of attaching them to the side of the box, I needed to make two sets on each side for stability.

Fun Finishing Touches to my Kids Pallet Picnic/Sand Table:

I padded and covered the benches with outdoor fabric. I spray painted the design from a tutorial I found on YouTube. I plan to turn the underside of the table top into either a chalkboard or a mini town with roads for their cars.

The most difficult part of this build was that I didn't have an actual plan to go by. I had to figure it all out myself for the most part. However, when it was finished, I was really pleased with the way it turned out. This assembly took me the better part of a week since I only worked on it after work. The table measures approximately 48" x 20" and is around 40" tall. I still plan to go back to the drawing board and put all my chicken scratches together in case I make another one. I think I spent about $20 at the most since I already had most of the materials on hand.
