Deliveries always mean packaging, and if large enough pallets. Each time we order our new stock of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint it is accompanied by a rough wooden pallet. The same goes for the material that we cut our custom stencils from. Eventually we find ourselves unable to move and have to decide what to do with this increasing pile of wood.
With a new circular saw in hand I decided that we should start recycling the pallets as we have with other materials.
A few splinters later and we had our first coffee table. To improve the usefulness we added a base for storing items inside the table, and painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Original White.
We then sanded the top down to a smooth surface, allowing the paint to remain within the grain. Four hair pin legs were added to complete the industrial look.
Below you can see the result. This is in the shop and ready for a new home. Pallet Coffee Table
