I had 2 EPAL pallets, and since they're a little smaller than standard-sized ones, I decided that they were the perfect fit for my living room. I turned them into this Red Decoupage Pallet Coffee Table.

This little Red Decoupage Pallet Coffee Table was a simple build, but ...

It was the prep that took time! I sanded the damn thing for a day to get it to the smoothness I wanted. Next, I applied a coat of primer. I allowed that to dry for 12-15 hrs before applying the first coat of red and second coat of red. Some parts were exceptionally rough, and sucked up the paint, so I had to coat them 3 to 4 times. Overall I used almost a liter of paint. Once the paint was completely dry, I applied two coats of matt finish varnish.

Once that was dry, I did a little bit of decoupage with two bird designs. I wanted them to be "Easter eggs" so that they won't be immediately seen.  That was the easy part.

Assembling took a good deal of thinking on my feet and adapting, since I am an amateur without any particular knowledge in furniture building, etc. I tried to use my drill, but the wood was very hard and wouldn't budge. After a good deal with experimenting with different drill sizes and possible angles I gave up and used my hammer and some good old long nails that did the job perfectly. At the end, I hammered in the four wheels and VOILA the table was done. I did not use any special techniques since I wanted a very simple result.
Table size: 1.2 m x 80 cm.
