Reclaimed Pallet Coffee Table

I have been dying to make a coffee table out of a reclaimed pallet! So when my mom gave me a pallet she found, I immediately knew what it was going to become!

A big thanks to my mom for rescuing the pallet and my dad for working so hard transforming it!

The pallet was too long for a coffee table so I measured and marked it to the length I wanted and my dad cut it down. Then he added a couple more 2"x4" boards under the planks for more support.

The box stretcher inspired table base was built out of 2"x2" boards, and turned out exactly how I envisioned it!

After it was put together my dad had the idea to add boards on the sides.  I loved this idea because it made it look complete.

I decided to paint it Gray Horse by Benjamin Moore (same as the shutter headboard), but after I finished painting I wasn't satisfied.  It needed some distressing and glazing, so I lightly sanded the edges and glazed it with Rust-oleum Transformations Decorative Glaze in Java Brown.

The color of the table looks perfect with the rug!

Now I just need to get a glass table top since there are wide gaps between the planks. I don't want to be nervous about anything spilling on my pretty rug!

The decor on the coffee table is something I just threw together with items I already had.  I'm sure I will be changing it up often.
