Coffee & Side Tables

Published on March 4th, 2013 | by Jules Yap


Recycled Pallets and 2 Ikea Lacks Made an awesome Rustic Coffee Table

Materials: 2 old hardwood pallets and 2 IKEA lack tables.

Description: Basically had the idea to make a bigger table out of 2 lack tables a while back and removed 2 legs from each table then screwed them together with old boards on the bottom. We found a couple of old hardwood Pallets and decided it would look cool to cut the pieces down to size and nail them on the top of our already customized ikea table. So I did… cut, nailed, sanded and stained. Looks AWESOME!

    Okay, now that is very awesome! We have pallets overflowing at work, so I am very tempted to try this.

    Yes I know but I thought you may have added them else where. That’s all

    This is a great looking table. I enjoy the rustic appearance.

    What did you do with tbe two extra legs again? I know you said something about screwing them together but not sure for what. The rug is dark so it’s hard to see the beautiful work you guys did. A new pick in lighter location would be great!
