Pallet Farmhouse Table

Sometimes I am reminded why I love pallets and why I wrote a book about building with pallets (which you can buy HERE).  This farmhouse table is a perfect example of what you can create with simple pallet wood!

It is a simple build and you can use THIS tutorial for stools to build the table--just think of it as one big stool.

The legs and cross bars on them are some chunky 4x4 pallet pieces.  The apron is made from the 3 1/2" "typical" pallet boards.  The table measures 48" x 30".

Different width boards on the top add a little interest and gives the table more of a farmhouse feel, as if it was made from parts and pieces that someone had on hand.  I attached these with a small 2x2 pallet board that was screwed tot he apron.  That way I could drill through it into the BOTTOM of the table top boards.

I painted the bases white, distressed it and then used Minwax stain in Early American all on it.  I then gave the top four coats of Polyacrylic to protect it well.

The benches were also a simple build.  I started with the legs, making an H with a top piece (I guess it is a square A) and then added two wider pallet boards for the seat.

This table is perfect for a breakfast nook or smaller dining area.  My daughter loved it so much she wanted us to trade out our 7 foot table for this one.  I told her, um, no!  But I said I would build her one when she has her own place in 5 or so years!
