If you read my $45 Back Patio Makeover post that was a part of the Summer Spruce-Up Series, then you saw the awesome table I made out of a wood pallet. And I say awesome, not only because it looks gorgeous, but because the $12 I payed for paint was the only money I had to fork out to create it!
And today, I'm showing you how it all went down!
So, read on to see how I went.....
For the legs, I used a 2 X 4 board that my hubby had laying around.
I sawed four 18 inch pieces for the legs. I didn't want the table to bee to low.
Then I drilled 3 holes where the screws would be inserted later.
My awesome hubby drilled the screws in by marking where the screws would go on the table and pre-drilling the holes there as well. This just made everything so much easier when it came to actually drilling the screws in!
After all four legs were screwed in, this is what we had to work with. Looking good!
As I was painting, I decided to add some detail to the corners of the table by adding pieces of the same board we used for the legs, cut in 3 X 3's.
I simply attached them with some nail glue..fast and easy!
And it definitely added a lot more interest!
Once the nail glue was all dried, I finished painting the rest of the table a fun red (I just got the cheap outdoor paint in True Red from Walmart since this table will be put into storage during the winter months.)
Now, look at my little red beauty!
And check it out with all her accessories on!

Pretty cool, huh?
So if you have a random pallet laying around or know somewhere that has them available, you can create a fun piece of outdoor furniture for next to nothing! And this project in particular was so easy and fast to make!
