Upcycled Pallet Coffee Table

CraftsAmanda Russell

I'm in love with this pallet coffee table. Not the the best at being tidy and I do like space to style up, this helps with both! Loads of storage space under the top to slide in shallow boxes and lots more on top for books and plants. 

You will need:

  • -Two wood pallets
  • Surform
  • Emulsion paint
  • Scumble glaze
  • Bucket
  • Screws
  • Drill
  • Four castor wheels
  • Basket trays
  1. Carefully remove the long slats from one of your pallets, then screw them onto the base of the other to make support for the drawers to sit on..
  2. Using a surform (a tool similar to a cheese grater) remove any loose bits of wood from the pallet surface, edges and underside.
  3. In a bucket, mix 100ml of scumble glaze with 400ml of emulsion paint, add a little water to thin the glaze. Brush onto the wood. I chose white to give a white-washed look.
  4. Turn your coffee table upside-down and screw a wheel to each corner. Finally slide storage boxes into the gaps under the top.
