PROJECT AND PHOTOS CONTRIBUTED BY KARIANNE WOOD OF THISTLEWOOD FARM
Add a rustic touch to your study with this pallet top desk. Repurpose an old table and a wood pallet to make this one-of-a-kind piece.
Materials and Tools Needed
- Old Table
- Wood Pallet
- Corner Braces
- White Paint
Remove the legs and braces from an old table. The dimensions of the table used here are 48 ” wide x 18 1/2″ deep x 33″ tall. Pry the pallet boards off of your free pallet leaving the frame of the pallet intact.
Construct a frame by attaching the pallet boards to the sides of the legs. The pallet boards on the long side of the desk measure 48″ wide, and the pallet boards on the short side measure 11″ wide. Add a slanted brace cut on a diagonal for support. Fasten the brace to the legs of the desk.
Paint the base of the desk white. On the original pallet frame, cut frame to 18 1/2″ deep. Re-nail the boards back onto the pallet without any gaps. Attach top to base.
