Rustic Pallet Patio Table (for FREE)

I am loving pallet projects! I mean who can say no to free wood! Smile

A couple weeks ago my dad was in town visiting and he needed to pick up some flooring from Lumber Liquidators. While we were out back pick it up, we noticed a pallet in the trash and a bunch of wood to the side. We asked if we could have the pallet and 4 of the wood pieces and they said no problem. SCORE!!

I started by taking the pallet apart. I removed the wood from the bottom. There were four pieces underneath – two large and two small.

I used the smaller pieces on each end.


Then I cut the wider pieces down to fit the gaps. I used a few pieces from another pallet for the rest.

Then I just cut down the four wood pieces to 30” for the legs.

I attached the legs with 3” wood screws and flipped it over to admire my work Open-mouthed smile

Lastly, lots and lots of sanding.

My chairs fit it perfectly! So in total, my entire patio “set” cost me a whopping….drum roll please…. $0!!! Seriously, everything was FREE!! I loooove FREE!

  12. That is awesome!! I really need to find some free pallets! We pulled one out of the ditch by our house, but it's pretty gnarly. Not sure what to do with it yet.

    1. Hmm, you could use it for an outdoor garden,maybe? I love free pallets especially when they're in good shape. Hopefully you're able to find some, they're so fun to play with!
