pallet table

Now that most of our backyard project is finished we have been trying to decide on an outdoor table. We've looked at everything and really haven't been that inspired or wanted to spend any more money so we decide to transform one of the pallets (from the sod delivery) into a low table. 

Andy, used pieces of 4X4s and screwed them into the bottom of the pallet. 

Note- the slats in pallets are often spaced very far apart and after lots of debate (about filling in those spaces) we decided to keep it as is because our needs for an outdoor table are pretty simple.

He sanded down the top and in a matter of about 15 minutes we had a table that can be used for outdoor meals and entertaining!

I love a low table because instead of chairs you can use pillows! We have been taking our food and snacks outside and making summer meals a little more special!

With all those holes in the table you better be careful where you set your glass! I think this is a neat concept that probably doesn't translate well into use. Maybe Andy should have deconstructed the pallet and used the wood to make a low table like you wanted but got rid of those spaces between the slats. Good idea though to use pallet wood. A great way to recycle. Hugs! deb

we actually considered doing this but after lots of debate we decided to keep the pallet as is since it is for outside use and works just fine for our needs :)

use some fun serving trays on top to add more fun colors and patterns if there are any worries about tipping glasses-- even a painted board like a cheese board style to ... love repurposed pallets- love what you guys have done with your backyard! blessings!
