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.

Step Two

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.

Step Three

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.
