I did it! I was able to finish my pallet coffee table in time for Thanksgiving, and I have to say, it’s an amazing coffee table! It was a lot of work, but so worth it.
I had a really hard time figuring out how to attach the top of the table to the bottom, and finally came to a solution, using elbow brackets. I wish now that I had spray painted them to match the rest of the hardware on the table, but you can’t actually see the brackets unless you lay on the ground, so I won’t worry about it too much.
I have some ideas about hardware on the outside of the table, just to give it a more industrial vibe. We’ll see how that plays out. I added an extra 2 x 4 in between the pallets, to give it some extra height, along with locking caster wheels.
I really can’t tell you how proud I am of this table! I have never made anything like this before, so to start a project like this and see it finished, is an incredible feeling. Try it yourself, and let me know how it goes.
We’re headed out to the movies but I’ll be back tomorrow to show you our Christmas tree. I’m trying to convince my husband to let me change up all of our typical holiday decorations. We’ll see if I’m successful…
