  • This looks awesome! Way to put your skills to work and save some money at the same time. The finish looks great. Your materials list stain and spray paint- did you use a combination of these two to get this finish?

    • I did. After putting the pallets together, I sanded it down and stained it. I then applied vinyl stickers for the roman numerals and gave it a couple coats of white spray paint. My 2 year old loved helping me peel the stickers off. After that I just gave it a light sanding to give it a little distressed looked! This was my first time doing any type of not straight cuts, so not too bad!

  • Oh, now it's clear! You peeled the stickers off after the spray paint so the numbers show that rich brown underneath! Truly awesome work! Thanks for sharing this with us.

  • Awesome work here. It's great that you have the skills and material you needed to do the welding! That's a truly valuable skill!

  • This is simply beautiful! You did a great job filling up the space without making it look too big for the room. That can be a tricky line to walk when you're working with large spaces. The finishing technique you use is spot-on. What a great tip too. Anyone following this project can keep that tip in mind: chalk paint not only is incredibly stylish right now, but it's also very forgiving. Beautiful work!

    • I was so happy with the current bathroom, wife wanted a new one. So anytime we went to get materials. There was no issues with me buying a new one of theses or those. I loved it

  • Wow! You really pulled out all the stops on this project! So glad to see such a great collection of RYOBI tools, too. Great work, here. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  • That's the best part of DIY. New tools and *still*less than paying someone to do it.

  • What an awesome way to add some interest an texture to your hallway space! Great use of scrap wood too- it's always great to see spare materials put to good use.

  • That is a hexagon (6 sides), not an octagon (8 sides). Still nice, though.

  • What a beautiful turnout! This is a nice fresh twist on the industrial cart coffee table trend. The wood looks so clean and bright! Thanks for sharing the measure twice/cut once tip! Very useful to anyone learning how to do wood working!

  • Beautiful! The varying colors of the wood give it a really cool rustic, modern element. Did you distress the sides of each plank before you put it all together?

  • Another awesome kitchen project! The lighting above the cabinets looks really nice. What a neat design with the corner shelving space, too. Did you create this design yourself?
    By RYOBI Nation, on August 23, 2016
    • Yes, this project was for family members who's home was hit by the Christmas Day Tornado in Dallas. They wanted to update the kitchen island, however they wanted something a little different than just the traditional granite. Therefore, I recommended a wood counter top, we looked online and found wood counter tops were actually very popular, therefore I put together a design that would have traditional kitchen cabinets on one side but book shelf type cabinets on the other side. There is an existing wall between the cabinets that houses the electrical and plumbing, therefore the 45 degree angle is because of the existing wall, that we lowered but of course we did not want to move due to the plumbing running through the floor. I decided to add the beed panels, and the two shelves in the middle. Raising the cabinets and putting sofa table legs under them, was more of a functional design to keep access to the outlets. Yes, this is an original design, one part function and one part creative. LOL. Thank you!
