Do you have just a little space in the room and need a little table where to put your computer? Would you like to build a very functional and easy to manufacture pallet furniture desk perfect for small rooms? Now we show you how to do it step by step. It’s project perfect for beginners that will take only half an hour to do it.

So the tools and materials that you are going to need are: 2 pallets, a hammer, nails, a screwdriver, screws, a sander, a brush and wooden varnish.

First we are going to take an Europallet, from which we will extract 2 planks (the second and the fourth board in the picture) with the help of a lever and the hammer. From the second pallet we are going to extract a plank to use it as the table top with the other two planks of the first pallet. If you want to have a desk with a wider table, we recommend you to remove 3 more planks.

Then with the help of the sander we’ll polish the wooden structure that we have obtained and the pallet planks. Next we can apply some layers of a dark color, over the smooth surface that we have obtained.

Once the varnish it’s dry, we can proceed to build the desk table top. We have used 3 boards to build the top table with the help of some nails and a hammer. The width of the table can be modified by adding more planks. In our case with three was enough, otherwise the future desktop wouldn’t let to open  the door of the room, plus our computer doesn’t takes almost any space.

Finally we will set the desktop to the wall. Depending on the weight that it has to support, we recommend using plugs and anchors to secure it better and not run the risk that it could fall off.

After the last step we can enjoy of our desk made from pallets. As you can see from the pictures we took advantage of the lower spaces between the boards as if it was a shelf, placing our books and magazines.
