Pallet Book-bench and Petite Coffee Table

  • 10 pallets

  • medium

  • n/a

  • $100

This Pallet Book-Bench and Petite Coffee Table took almost a month to make, as it was my first pallet project. I took my time to get the proportions right for my family, and didn't pressure myself. But, I wanted to enjoy the process of discovery and creation!  I am very satisfied as the bench. It's very comfortable and the coffee table is pretty, as well as very useful!

Pallet Book-Bench and Petite Coffee Table - the Book Bench:

First,  I cut two pallets in half just past the center stringer. Set them aside. Then, I took another pallet and split the upper and lower decks apart. One-half of the pallet, with blocks attached, became the base of the bench. Next, I attached the two trimmed pallets onto the chair, securing the center deck boards to the bottom foundation. Next, I added two more boards to support the seat and used loose deck boards to fill in the seat. Finally, I attached the other half of the top half (or bottom half ) of the deck boards like the backrest, and secured into place. The bench was painted white for durability and the light and airy look it imparts.

Pallet Book-Bench and Petite Coffee Table - the Coffee Table:

This table was very straightforward. I used a portion of the parts cut off from the chair armrests and trimmed it out after cutting it to the width I wanted. Then, I used more deck boards to "sandwich" pallet blocks together like the feet of the table, and secured them to the top of the table.  I painted it white was well when it was completely ready.

To finish everything, I attached some decorative nails onto the top of the seatback, and along the very back board of the seat to attach cushions.
