From Crappy Sawhorse to Creative Coffee Table... Vintage Style!

50K Views
It's a true sign of summer approaching when you've pressure washed the back patio!
We couldn't wait a moment longer... within hours, my son and I enjoyed lunch out there... but using a crappy old sawhorse for a coffee table was a fix that was a little too quick!
We needed to ramp up our experience.
With the quick addition of a little pallet wood and a cool stencil, this did the trick!

It all started with a beat up old sawhorse. Nothing too special here, but it was a really great size for a coffee table.
Let's ramp this up!

Pallet wood was cut to size, then screwed directly to the top, leaving the authentic edges intact.

A quick stencil added some vintage market flair in minutes!

Some cool old gate styled coasters were made from scrap wood, old hinges, marked with stencils for a crate appearance.
