Easy Pallet Desk

We built this desk in about 2 1/2 hours.


We had some old table legs and we constructed a frame by attaching the pallet boards to the sides of the legs.The pallet boards on the long side of the desk measure 48″ wide and the pallet boards on the short side measure 11″ wide.

It was such a fun project and such a great way to repurpose and upcycle.

Time: 5 Hours Difficulty: Moderate

    Nice idea! Most pallets are made of oak, but I would either sand the crap out of the boards or run it through a planer to smooth them out. I don't think sealing the wood will take care of your splinters.
