Hello friends 🙂
Today i worked on my version of an entryway table. I broke down a couple of pallets to make use of the wood.
I took my design of this entry table from my pallet garden benches or tables as some people are using them for, I just expanded the dimensions a little, and included a shelf.
The height is 30 inches, and the width i choose was 16 inches.
Once I made all my cuts i used my torch and burned the wood.
I assembled the ends first to get the height of the lower shelf i wanted. I used another 2×4 as the spacer for the height of the shelf, and simply attached 2 2×4’s on each end to get the basic frame work. Then it was a simple matter of attaching the 4 longer 1×4’s to the sides making the front and back for the table.
I cut all the cross parts just over 16 inches. I forgot i had to take into account the additional width that each 1×4 adds. That’s why you do the frame work first.
After everything was attached and generally looking the way i wanted, it was time to sand and take off the over burnt parts i torched.
The finished results is as you see above.
Now i could have left it as is. BUT people have been receptive to chalk paint and whitewash effect on furniture. So that’s what i did 🙂
And here is the result 🙂
Oh and the serving tray I made awhile ago. Its a real simple build from some spruce 1×2’s and 1×4’s. I used a fruit-wood finish on the tray.
I haven’t made my affiliate links yet… Still working on it.
But I’m still going to share what i used to seal the table.
Thanks for your support, I hope I can inspire others as i have been inspired.
