I have to admit these World Cup games have been interfering with my DIY projects, but since it only comes around every four years I completely welcome the distraction.  The next part of this series is showing how I assembled the pallets.  If you missed my Part 1 you can view it here .


Since my last post I decided to change around the setup a bit of my pallets. I was very fortunate to find pallets that needed very little altering.  The original idea was to have 2 pallets at the seat and 1 for the back, but after testing it out a bit I figured a higher seat would be much more comfortable. So I stacked 2 sets of 3 pallets each and pushed them together.

Midway through this project I thought that the pallets needed a little company and came across some really great cinder block furniture ideas on Pinterest.  I decided to take a visit to Home Depot and pick up a few.  This is probably the easiest table you’ll ever construct.  Using the blocks and some liquid nail adhesive glue, I glued and stacked 2 of the blocks.

Next came the top for the table.  Since I’m trying to maintain an economical budget for this project, I took a trip to good old Value Village (thrift store) and found a metal tray for only $1.00 and it was a perfect fit.  After rummaging through my cans of spray paint a I found a berry color that made a great accent color for this project.  This is what it turned out to look like.  By the way photo credit to my Little Model A he took the finished product picture all by himself–focused and all!
