Do you have an old pallet and want to start a new DIY project? Today we are going to show you how to make a nice hipster table for the living room made with a single pallet. The table was made with legs, with a classic design combined with the rustic style of the pallet creating a very unique and original pallet furniture.
It is a very simple project with which you will enjoy building it. The materials that we are going to need to start are: a pallet, a saw, a hammer, nails, sandpaper or a sander, 4 prefabricated wooden legs or recycled from a broken furniture the you may have at home, 4 bolts and mounting plates (one for each leg), primer, spray paint blue or of the color that you like and dark varnish.
Once we have obtained the pallet we are going to cut it in a half with the help of the saw, as we show you in the picture. Then reorganize the planks and place them in alignment on the top of the pallet that we have cut. With these planks we’ll make the top board table, forming a flat surface without gaps. If you need it, you can extract more wooden planks from the other half of the pallet that we are not going to use. We are going to fix these planks with the help of a nail gun or a hammer.
Then sand the table will sandpaper and apply a layer of dark varnish, wait for it to get dry. While we wait we can apply a first coat of primer to the 4 table legs.
Once the legs are completely dried, we can apply a couple of coats of blue paint to the table legs.
Then we are going to install the bolts into the legs, as we show you in the picture. We recommend you calculate correctly which is the center of the leg and mark it with a pencil before you perforate it. Then drill every leg and attach a bolt.
Next set under the pallet the plates where we are going to screw the legs, as you can see in the picture below.
Then fit the top of the each bolt on every plate. Once all the 4 legs are correctly fixed, we will turn around the table and make sure that the legs are properly leveled.
And voila, you can enjoy your vintage table for the living room, the design can be adapted to any taste, shape or colors. In our case we have used the holes of the pallet to place some books and give to it an air of even more hipster decor, you can combine the furniture with other recycled elements or for example with a leather sofa as you can see in the picture, it will be great.
