Updating an Old Coffee Table With Pallet Wood

If I could throw things away, this project never would have happened. I had the very weathered coffee table with deep nasty scratches. I sanded it down as far as I could, but it was still too weathered. I had a pile of weathered pallet wood that fit the top of my table almost perfectly. I attached the wood with brads and hid my freshly cut edges with watered down craft paint.

Much better now...it looks "intentionally" weathered
How beautiful is this finished Pallet wood coverd coffee table.
Had this scratched up coffee table for years...Yes, I have a big dog. It needed a fix , and fast.
Here's what it looks like after a heavy sanding. Almost there, but not quite yet.
The old weathered pallet wood is almost the same color as my sanded down table top.....only prettier.
I used a brad gun with 2 inch nails to attach all my wood strips.
I mixed a couple colors of craft paint with some water.
I used my washed down craft paint to make all my freshly cut edges to look weathered...but not new.
I love how all the holes from the pallet nails line up on the new table.
