Using a cute little pallet, I made a coffee table.
I was going to put dowels in the empty spaces, but hubby said he would cut me some thin pieces of wood on the table saw to use in the spaces. The table saw is the one tool I don't love to use. I will, but not if I don't have to. I always have this strange urge to reach my hand towards the blade. Yes, I am also that person who has to exercise control to not touch something when there is a "Do Not Touch" sign. I have been kicked out of a few museums--just kidding!
I added 2 x 6 legs, and side pieces,
painted the table and then wedged the thin wood pieces between the pallet slats.
I stained the legs and the table top.
This is a great piece both indoors and out.
Today I am headed to Spokane to do Annie Sloan Chalk Paint training. The Antique Barn where I work will be the first distributors of the paint in Montana. I will be teaching the classes for them. I am excited to learn some new techniques and to play with the paint.
