Farm House Table

I am currently in a phase of using old pieces and making them into usable and functional pieces for my home. We recently bought a new house this past summer and when you have a brand new house and did not get to pick anything out for it, I immediately wanted to put my taste on everything in the house to make it mine.

Since we are in a new neighborhood I was lucky enough to obtain about 20 wood pallets that were left over from the construction crews. I've always seen some cool stuff on pinterest that people make from pallets and my ideas ran wild.

One issue we had at our house is that we can not all sit at the kitchen table together and we needed to have a larger table and more seating, but we do not have the money to purchase a new table. I told my husband we should make one out of pallets. I love the farmhouse look and it would be perfect. And that is what we did!

First we took two pallets that had some good bones and not rotted and then we had to pull off boards and basically puzzled a new top together from two pallets.

Then we sanded the pallets down and I picked out stain colors and paint.

I stained both tops with Rustoleum Kona and then Rustoleum Weathered Gray. Then I added polyurethane to the tops to seal them.

For the base and the legs I painted them Rustoleum Heirloom White

The challenge was putting the 8 ft table together and getting it into the house. We accomplished it and love how it turned out!

We still have to make a bench for one side of the table - which our kids will sit at. We will do the same process but use half of the pallet and then paint it all heirloom white.
