99 Pallet Bed DIY Plans

Wooden pallets are sections of wood which are used for shipping all kinds of products. Products are shipped in boxes and these boxes are stacked to be loaded in trucks and delivered to retail outlets and customers anywhere.

While most boxes are carried by hand, it can take time to load and transfer each and every box. The most efficient way to do so is to use a forklift and to be able to lift boxes and other heavy products anywhere with a forklift; these have to be loaded onto wooden pallets.

Pallets that are used for crafts and general carpentry and DIY furniture making are from wooden pallets that are used for shipping and delivering products. Pallets are therefore strong and can be used on almost all types of furniture. One of these is a pallet bed frame.

8 Pallet Cabinet DIY Plans

If you have been trying your hand out at woodworking for a while now and feel ready to take on projects that you can use as fully functional household items, try building pallet cabinets! The pallet is so easy to work with that you can use it to build nearly any kind of cabinet, rack, and similar items for the home or office.

We put together 8 pallet cabinet DIY plans that you can work on over the weekend. You can find projects that work for both beginners and advanced woodworkers. Feel free to share this list with your fellow woodworkers and let us know what you think!

1) Kitchen Cabinet With Top

The first item on this list is a simple kitchen cabinet with a top. What caught our eye is the simplicity of it all. You know what they say: Less is more. We can go on and on about sayings, but the long and short of it is just that there is something undeniably and irresistibly elegant about simplicity.

The pallet kitchen cabinet in the plan and in the video is a bit wide and has a top, so it is a great storage piece for fruit baskets, utensils, bottles, tools, small appliances, supplies, and the like. It is also a nice project to try out because the measurements can be easily tweaked so that the cabinet fits whatever awkward space you are trying to fill.

The exteriors can also be easily changed. The one in the video has a rustic look, and you see how the accessories and the finish help create that look. But simply changing the stain color and you’ve got a completely different cabinet.


2) Living Room Console Table

This entry is a great addition to any rustic-, farmhouse-, or shabby chic-themed living room, bedroom, or family room. We are also partial toward anything dark because such pieces do not show dirt or damage easily.

The entire media cabinet is wide, and there are two levels inside, so you can put a lot of things in it aside from the usual remote control, players, chargers, and similar items. You can place your TV on top or completely fill it with decorative items, lovely storage boxes, books, photo frames, and more while your TV hangs above the cabinet.

The “X” pattern on the doors are very iconic and appealing. As a whole, this pallet media cabinet is very much comparable with much more expensive pieces you can find online or in high-end brick-and-mortar stores.


3) Barn Door Cabinet

Barn door cabinets are one of the most ingenious marvels of woodworking. They help you maximize space. You get to stuff a lot of things in without having to live with a bulky eyesore in your kitchen or wherever you decide to install this piece. It can also easily blend in with the rest of your wall or the dominant theme in your kitchen.

You can put tools in it or use it as a pantry. You can put kitchen supplies, odd-shaped trays and appliances, and maybe even spices or rarely used ingredients. The pallet barn door cabinet in the plan has a sliding door, so half your stuff are in full view of everyone visiting your kitchen.

So place all your pretty, organized knick-knacks in one side and all the unsightly ones in the covered side. However, you can always opt for the conventional door design if you are pressed for space.


4) Reese Media Cabinet

The height of the pallet media cabinet in the plan is quite common. It is not one of those short and long ones you can find in minimalist interiors, and it is not awkwardly tall either. You can place your TV on it together with some other items, depending on the width of your TV. You can also just place the cabinet directly under a hanging TV so you can use the top for decorative items.

There is a lot of storage space inside, but that is by no means license to accumulate clutter because most of the cabinet is open. Only the middle section is closed (They are drawers.). You can get around that, though. If you have no idea how to maximize the open spaces without making the whole thing look messy, stuff in some storage boxes or books, and you should be good to go.


5) Drinks Station

This plan was originally for a pallet potting bench, but you can easily tweak it so that it serves whatever another purpose you may have in mind. A fellow DIY woodworker built one up and used it as a drinks station, a perfect addition to any man cave or nook. At the same time, you can place this on your patio or any other area where you entertain visiting friends or relatives.

This pallet drinks station or cabinet is also a good piece to make if you are an aficionado who has a lot of bartending tools and differently sized bottles and glasses. You can also use the top rack as a display shelf. Meanwhile, you can add doors if you plan to store bulky, unsightly items on the bottom shelf. All in all, this pallet cabinet maximizes space a lot and is an ideal project for new DIYers.


6) Emerson Console Or Buffet

If you are looking for a console or just about any cabinet that would fit in inside any room in your home, you should try building this one. It offers equal parts pure storage and display, and you can use it in thousands of ways.

You can treat it like a normal console table and place it in your living room or hallway. You can hang a mirror above it and place flower vases, books, picture frames, or a set of those Russian nesting dolls on the top. One-third of the cabinet is open, and you can choose to use this part for display or just fill it with chic storage boxes so you can freely stuff them with small items.

It can even function as a storage cabinet for a baby’s things. You can put diapers, your stash of formula, bottles, and more. Meanwhile, you can use the top as a changing table. Isn’t that versatile?


7) Kitchen Cabinet

One of the things we love the most about this pallet kitchen cabinet is its size. It is just the height of your average counter, and it is meant to fill those awkward small spaces that you don’t quite know what to do with.

It is also great for storing pots, baking molds, and other accessories, and those other kitchen what-nots that you need to have easy access to but can’t put in plain sight because let’s face it, they are not always pleasing to the eye.

You can position this pallet kitchen cabinet right beside your oven or gas range so you can easily grab the utensils or tools you have in the cabinet. It can also be used to hold spices and condiments.


8) Outdoor TV Cabinet

You will love this rustic outdoor TV cabinet with double doors. It can be installed anywhere: in the living room, in your bedroom, in your nook, or on your patio. Not only does it serve as a protective cabinet for your wall-mounted TV, it also accentuates your wall and adds beauty to the room altogether.

You can also easily change the finish or the stain to make it jive with the rest of your furniture or wall. Overall, this project is a recommended piece for new woodworkers who want to come up with something highly functional and decorative at the same time. Furthermore, it should not be too costly to make because you do not need an awful lot of pallets, and it is not time-consuming.

Its $40-dollar budget cost can actually be toned down to the least figure depending on how much of the working materials are readily available in your home.

You can further these accents by varnishing the fresher section of the wood and then vice-versa when you are buying a new one. The mixing magic, upon unlocking its secret through the DIY tutorials, should turn out to be a simple concoction in the end.

Depending on the mixture of colors, wood walls can potentially balance the energy in your bathing area-  keeping the cool while sucking in the brightness from the outside.

There are plenty of wood colors that blend perfectly with the bathroom décor. But nothing can beat the magic of a newly discovered color. I, myself, have eternally opened and offered myself to surprises.

Fortunately, it did not take long until I came across a discovery- a blog that talks about the undeniable beauty of a weather wood stain color.

Instantly, right after that, I tried the suggested color/tone. As expected, it did not fail me! Suppose I interest you with this prospect, I might just also insert in the spring inspired wall décor.

3) Reading Nook with Wood Plank Wall

Image source:

Do you happen to be bugged by that space allowance in one corner in your home? Why not plaster a wood pallet into it and turn it into a reading nook?

In my home, for instance, there is this one eye-sore of a space in my living room. Left with no crispy idea on how to better utilize it, nay cover it from being an obvious gap, I was left tossing and tumbling in bed. But after sleepless nights, I finally conceived the idea!

Being a wide-reader myself, I found the DIY idea to be a timely discovery. The first step I did was look for any redeemable wood pallet. Fortunately, I found one. It was rough, earthy and wrinkled. It actually resembled a freshly skinned tree bark.

Did it bug me? No! It even gave me a better idea. What I did was to leave it all as it is- with the exact texture and dark brown color. After fumigating it with methyl bromide, I attached it to the wall. Alas, there it is- the best space for my reading escapade.

If you feel upgrading the reading nook wood plank’s color, my jolly- you must! The best step that you can start off is by varnishing the surface. Then you can proceed by painting it. And since it is a reading nook, it would be advisable that you attach lamps unto it. You can help yourself more with color ideas from the net.

A reading nook is a crucial part of your home. By all means, it can work beyond being a reading nook. Quality family times, movie times, dining times, etc. are sure to warm up in this specific area.

But the best thing yet about the reading nook wall pallet is its conduciveness for creativity. So, if you go over the flipside in my story and happen to not have that vacant space in your home, then you can utilize the living room instead.

Letter-shaped pallet wood art spins a feel of mystery in your space. And since not all people are doing it, this should prove to be a novel attempt. More so, 3-dimensional letter wood designs are yet to saturate their presence in the market. Thus, the whole package of the DIY pallet wood letters definitely warrants an even wider-spread attention.

The best tones for the pallet wood letters are light, natural brown to faded colors. It is because the immediate décor signature of such project is crisp earthiness. The earthiness of the DIY already carries in cool tones.

6) Rustic Wood Wall Design

Image source:

The DIY rustic wood wall design promotes crafts in visual arts and lettering. It can instantly transform your home into a countryside barn. You can write in whatever you want, considering that you have already come up with a theme. In my case, for instance, I put a barn rustic wood wall plank just above my home’s entrance door. I carved in it the phrase, “Wanderer’s Portal”.

Other great areas where you can hang the wood wall design include the kitchen, dining hall, patio, porch, restrooms and sleeping quarters. This awesome DIY project output can be assigned outdoors. Suppose you are giddy enough to give guests quite an adventure, you can place it right above your entrance gate.

Word carving on wood demands another time and focus. While such area may prove to be challenging, it is still however very much doable. To prepare yourself with the detailed craft, it is best that you sign into online workshops months ahead of your scheduled DIY effort.

After all, you need not hurry on this. In your time and pace, given the active learning, you are sure to realize the project with delight and satisfaction. Take your time and learn all you can on wood carving craft.

Wood carving is not the only option here. Suppose you are aiming for a fast DIY yield, then you can just paint your sign.

You can learn all of these from the varied DIY options.

7) Barn Wood Herringbone Wall

Image source:

The Herringbone wall design pattern takes delight from a wide interest among modern home décor practitioners.  A highly symmetrical architectural pattern, it now inclines towards the more artistic nature of interior designing. The herringbone pattern is simple to put up, hence, its DIY procedures. What this DIY project need is a pack of wood pallet tiles. The number of the tiles depends on space’s dimension you are resting your eyes at.

You would be much luckier if you are refurbishing an already polished package of wood tiles. Given so, what you will only have to think about is varnishing its surface. Obviously, there is not any need for painting over herringbone design. Because, it is literally meant to be simplistic, bare and pure. Color has very less to do with the herringbone design. Its biggest star-players are shape and pattern. In case you cannot find a redeemable package, you may have to settle with your rough wood. But again, you must go through the basic process of checking/enhancing your wood quality.

Barn wood proves to be a solid nucleus of the herringbone DIY design. Sturdy, fine and naturally mold-resistant, barn woods hold architectural weights for centuries. As to which gains credit for this- that would be the wood’s source which is pine. Because of this, pine wood almost always makes it in several barn wood manufacturing areas. Like Cedar, Pine boasts of a very high-quality wood tag.

The Herringbone pattern can be realized in not more than a day. With the DIY pointers precisely followed, you are sure to finish covering your whole area within a day. In bigger cases, however, like offices, churches, and restaurants, you may have to require assistance. Depending on manpower size, the DIY project may take two or days to be set.

8) Geometric Wood Wall Art

Image source:

Another worthy addition to the classic artistic DIYs, the geometric wood wall design brings so much flavor and perkiness to that one area in your home or place that you consider a gap. The problem with the general home structures is that it sometimes leaves unwanted wall spaces in between. These gaps/spaces can be awkward in a sense that even color washing it would not save its blankness. The geometric wood design proves to be the ultimate solution to that problem.

The geometric design taps various patterns to look good. Matched patterns for the geometric wall design include herringbone, plank wood, a double herringbone pattern and many more. But you can still put in your personal, deconstructed touch to this highly geometric platform. It is all up to you. Anyhow, such DIY design is intended to be symmetrical for a fast finish. By all means, you can variate with your own patterns. The sky is the limit for this kind of project.

The best wood source for this project is any cedar/pine wood pallet blocks. The blocks will serve as the scaffolding for the piece. It is through these blocks that you get to achieve the geometric patterns of such design. You can further layer this with a plywood support or any thin wood pallet flake. It would not hurt if you buy.

The geometric wood wall design may appear to be intimidating and difficult to put up. But, it is not really the case when you begin the work. The DIY options for the design are intended to empower even the most novice of all builders. All you need is a sharp eye and ears to realize the instructions. At the end of the day, the effort is simply a product of detailed and neat working characteristic. So, it is not really that intimidating after all.

9) Photo Clipboards

The DIY photo clipboard design offers an alternative for putting up or framing important photos in your home. It proves to be a unique photo structure option. But the best thing about this design yet is its flexibility for tweaking. Thus, you can tweak it in the most artistic way you can. Easy and practical to put up, the DIY photo clipboard should be the best alternative for framing photos.

Making the DIY photo takes only a few minutes. Why? Because it only involves the slightest clipboard wood pallet. It should not take longer than that. And since it is a lighter, thinner wood pallet material, it can easily be moved around. Arrangements of the clipboard can vary as per photo subject. Other options for arrangement include individual posting or a grouped setting like that of a gallery. This should not take an hour.

You can take independence on the subjects that you frame. By any means, you can even attach a painting or a personal favorite portrait instead. In fact, this DIY project is highly personalized. There are limitless ways that you can perk up the clipboard design. Thus, it should be the best instrument for artistic freedom.

Using reclaimed wood planks, it would be great to polish the wood material or bathe it with anti-mold solutions. It would be a double happy if you apply an anti-mold varnish on the wood surface. Such varnish solution is cheaper and safer to use. With a high-quality varnish, you may no longer have to buy expensive other coatings and finishing. After all, the clipboard would be much appreciated with an organic, rough feel.

10) Reclaimed Wood Fireplace

Image source:

The fireplace! Oh yeah! It should be the homiest, coziest part of the home. It especially becomes tres important during winter. Now, spruce it up with complete wood pallet reconstruction and you are sure to set a cabin atmosphere in your home.  The fireplace plays an important function in your home- it gathers and strengthens the family by providing warmth. The cool effect provided by the pallet wood fireplace neutralizes the general tone. Thus, this mixture further results in a highly cozy atmosphere.

As seen of it, the reclaimed wood fireplace tends to be the most challenging DIY to realize. It is challenging as per cutting procedure, wood placement, and architectural planning. Adding fuel to the fire, the precise dimensions of the fireplace wall corner can be unpredictable. Thus, changes in the dimension are to be expected with the fireplace spruce-up business. The fireplace size can ultimately vary on depth enhancement. So the best that you can do to avoid complications is to flatly structure your fireplace beforehand. But, that is just the surface of it. The whole effort of fitting your reclaimed wood to the corner is another complex story to tell.

In most cases involving this type of DIY project, contractors and assisting architects are being tapped. Under professional help, you can expect this DIY project to be realized within a day. Doing it alone, though doable, can guarantee you a-two-or-more day working period. But if you are up to the challenge, it should not be a problem.

The DIY procedures for this project will teach you to wear protective gears, especially eye goggles. It is important that you put on protection because the project would involve laborious drilling, sawing, welding, etc. The whole effort of upgrading the fireplace with wood pallet is expected to demand the involvement of metal/steel for structuring. So, it is highly recommended that you follow the DIY instructions to the tee.

That rustic tray is so lovely, and we think it should for you regardless of whether you plan to use it in your own home or an accommodation business. Make sure you use good pallet wood or fill in any unsightly holes sufficiently. We recommend that you use sealants to protect it from spills.

There are many variations of this design online. You can add a cover or lid, legs, compartments, partitions, and the like. However, the bare simplicity of this rustic pallet food tray does have its own charm and vintage feel, so we would stick to this.

6) Saloon Door

We love Old West saloons so much that we would build this saloon door every chance we get. You can use this as a stair gate for babies and pets. Due to the design, it should not get in the way of non-targets (you), and you can easily modify the height and the installation of the lock to prevent your child from outsmarting you.

This is not only for indoor use. With the right sealant, this can be installed outdoors too. You can use this as a garden or house gate, securing your property and adding some wild west flair to its appearance at the same time.

20 Pallet Deck DIY Plans

There are so many benefits to building a deck for your home. A well-made deck improves the appearance of your home and therefore increases its value.

It can also serve as an outdoor area for the family and for entertaining guests. Finally, compared with home additions, deck additions are easier and quicker to build and are way less intrusive.

Luckily, there is an even cheaper and easier way of building your home a nice deck. You can buy super cheap pallets online or gather discarded ones around your neighborhood for free. Here are some nice pallet deck DIY plans you can follow.

1) High-Elevation Two-Level Deck

This high-elevation deck plan features two levels. It is unique in that it has two flights of stairs with one landing. The top level gives access to the house and can be used for grilling and barbecue, whereas the bottom level can serve as the main area for dining and entertaining guests.

The gorgeous cascading stairs on the bottom deck is very visually appealing and helps fuse the enormous structure into the environment. This is a great addition to your home, especially if there are no little tykes around and you have plenty of time on your hands!


2) Simple High-Elevation Deck

We love how the curved elements of this high-elevation deck look very classy yet so simple. The top area is great for entertaining guests or as an outdoor dining area. The curved bay provides a great vantage point, so this may be ideal for a side of your home that faces a scenic view of the landscape or cityscape.

The switchback staircase’s landing, which also features the same curved bay of the top deck, is another good area for chatting, and it is a lot more intimate.


3) Large Three-Level Deck

This huge three-level deck is a great project if you are quite an experienced woodworker and have a few days to spend toiling over lots of pallets. Obviously, this plan is for large houses. It gives nice variety in that there is somewhere to go according to your mood.

The transitions are quite smooth because of certain reductive elements fused into the design, so they do not awkwardly pop. The balanced sizes of the decks and the sweeping stairs all make this deck appear much bigger visually.


4) Small Single-Level Deck

You may find this a suitable pallet deck project if you are relatively new to building large-scale wood structures or you just really want to give your home a fairly simple deck.

The benches and planter boxes accentuate the deck nicely and further make it a great place for entertaining despite the small area. Meanwhile, the angled corners and wide stairs give the deck a certain touch of elegance, so the entire structure looks interesting despite it being small.


5) Small Pool Deck

If you are a novice builder, you can hone your woodworking skills by constructing this simple and small pallet deck for an aboveground pool. The plan is available in many different sizes, so you will surely find one that fits your pool.

The deck should be a hit among kids. You can put up a simple snack station here during a pool party or a simple dining table. This may be a small pallet deck, but it is very versatile and functional.


6) Small Basic Deck

This is a relatively simple deck that should not take too long to build and consume too many pallets. The size makes it ideal for small and medium-sized areas, and the clipped corner gives the simple design an elegant twist.

Another interesting detail is the privacy door standing opposite the stairs. It serves an important purpose and makes the deck more aesthetically pleasing at the same time. This is an easy build and therefore ideal for new woodworkers.


7) Two-Level Deck With Recessed Tub

If you have some experience with woodworking and know quite a number of techniques already, you may find this two-level pallet deck a suitable project. It has a recessed area for a hot tub and a big space for entertaining guests, grilling, and/or dining.

Two sides of the hot tub are surrounded by planter boxes, which improve the overall look of the deck. As a whole, the deck is very Instagrammable and looks great to hang out in.


8) Deck With Curved Bay

This is a simpler version of #2. As you can see in the photo, this pallet deck design highlights symmetry and therefore looks very classy. The curved bay gives you a good vantage point and looks great from any distance.

Depending on where the door is, you should be able to fit a grill by the wall. Despite the very aesthetic appearance, this one-level pallet deck is relatively easy and quick to build, so you can easily nail it (pun intended!) even as a novice woodworker.


9) Medium Pool Deck

This pallet deck for aboveground pools may be relatively large, but the design is quite simple and is hence ideal even if you are new to woodworking. The plan is for a 17’ x 20’ deck that wraps around a quarter of an aboveground pool measuring 52” high and 24’ wide.

The overall area is 249 square feet, which should be spacious enough for some small furniture pieces. The good thing about the plain and bare look of this deck is that you are free to decorate it whichever way you like.


10) Covered Porch Deck

It’s about time we mentioned a covered deck here. Sure, you can always add a roof to any of the previous pallet deck plans we have shown, but it is still better if you can visualize the entire design put together.

This is a great project if you are a beginner wanting to try your hand out at building decks and roofs. Needless to say, this suits homes in regions with bad climates because it keeps you dry while looking stylish.

There is nothing wrong with going traditional. After all, the convention would not have become what it is if it was not liked by many people to begin with. This traditional design is easy to pull off using free, discarded pallet wood.

This is ideal for spacious rooms. The nightstand looks very solid but at the same time bulky, so if you put it in a small room with many items already, it can make the space look even more cramped.


5) Bright And Colorful Pallet Nightstand

This is a very refreshing and youthful take on upcycled pallet furniture. The entire item is very simple but should not fail to give a room a nice touch of color. This is an ideal piece for kids’ rooms or any part of the room you want to decorate with artistic flair.

Go for white if you want a clean-looking piece that makes the room look more spacious, dark colors if you want a striking effect, and pastels if you want something quirky.


6) Hollow Pallet Nightstand

The uniqueness of this pallet nightstand makes it very captivating. There is a lot you can do with the vertical space inside what is essentially a crate lying on its side.

You can create a look opposite that in the photo and go for a modern lamp in place of the one in the picture. The contrast will make both the nightstand and the lamp pop. This is a great project to work on if you are aiming for a head-turning piece that can be built easily.  


7) 2-Drawer Pallet Nightstand

This is a slightly different version of the pallet nightstand with the heart cutout in the drawer. We like this more because although it has ordinary details, it is pretty and highly functional.

You can build this for yourself or gift it to a no-nonsense friend who is all about utilitarian furniture pieces. Overall, it looks very solid and sturdy. You can put a lamp on top and use the open shelf underneath for phones, tablets, chargers, and other things you need to pull out constantly.


8) Modern Pallet Nightstand

We absolutely adore this modern pallet side table because we are all about minimalist design and because it shows you that you do not have to get suckered into those pricey furniture pieces in shops.

As you can see in the photo, the design and construction are very simple, so you should be able to build this quickly and easily. You can also experiment with different paint colors and stains to produce so many attractive looks for your pallet nightstand.


9) Pallet Nightstand With A Diagonal Pattern

We love the look of this pallet nightstand because it is traditional with a twist. The legs and the shelves all look quite ordinary, but the diagonal pattern on the tabletop makes the entire piece look unique.

This project should suit you well regardless of whether you are a novice or an experienced woodworker. This is a good way to practice cutting precision, given that you need to make diagonal cuts on several panels while making sure everything looks perfectly even.

17 Pallet Coffee Table DIY Plans

Pallet coffee tables have become staple furniture in today’s modern spaces. Besides functioning as support, design, and addition in your décor, coffee tables are necessary sections for stress relief, recreation and refocusing in your home/office.

How much of a stress relief is it really? Sitting and sipping hot coffee after a long day’s work should not feel any more relieving. Imagine doing that away from hustles of the routines. Super-relieving, that is how it is.

Coffee tables are instrumental to recreational moments. You can rethink things, conceptualize ideas or even just read a book or magazine while seated, drinking coffee at the table. If you feel like it, you can check out your social media buzzes at the pallet coffee table.

I think the refocusing thing does not require much explaining here. But anyway, as I’ve mentioned- coffee table spaces prove to be conducive for rethinking and refocusing things.

Coffee tables mainly rule out today’s aesthetics, especially that these materials are made in pallet wood.  Its rustic charm especially makes it an expensive commodity. As a result, more and more interior designers are ordering items from stores. To compensate, manufacturers in large numbers, compete for brands by continually innovating product designs.

All these factors I mentioned lead to the inevitable increase of the coffee table product prices. For the record, purchasing today’s average coffee tables can be economically-wounding. And, that’s a mean fact. Now, imagine buying the best ones!

Naturally, there are many options for saving your pocket over this one. One of these is the DIY project. With a surge of pallet coffee table DIY online publications, you are sure to fall head over heels in love with the idea of assembling your own furniture. Why not, when at the end of the day, it is the (your) knowledge that champs over the rest.

So, here they are- our collection of the best 17 pallet coffee table DIY plans:

1) White Double Decker Pallet Coffee Table

Image source:

If you are the type of user that involves a number of peripheries at coffee time, then you ought to try out the white double-decker pallet DIY idea. This type of table is very conducive to group sessions.

So, considering how much people this table would accommodate, you would better gather up pallet size options as well. The double-decker levels can end up with the exact same dimensions or otherwise. The latter configuration makes the design more rustic.

Pallet wood planning also greatly determines the success of the DIY plan. Pallet wood planning involves carefully selecting the best pallet wood levels for the kind of design you are envisioning. The planning should also plot your expenses. This is the phase wherein things get added or removed from the whole configuration.

The best double decker coffee table is the one that makes use of miniature-size pallets. This should create a cute fantasy table painted in white. This table design, with casters attached to its legs, makes it an easy use. But if you are eyeing a table output that caters to a number of users while still in small size, you can make a set of these. That should do it.

Color options for the double-decker table are varied. But the white-painted pallet never fails to exceed color aesthetics. White paints can indeed maintain a neat, clean, minimal, rustic but solid hue in the furniture.

But above all, both white and black colors are the only two colors that blend with the general décors without much complication. As they would say, nothing decides best than a black-and-white comparison.

2) 2-Tiered Pallet Coffee Table

A geometric achievement, the 2-tiered pallet coffee table design can instantly turn your space into a highly utilitarian mode. It completes an entire modern/rustic décor look without the expense of sophistication.

Given that you are an expert in the 2-tier method, you can assure a great result in just a few hours. The latest that you can finish assembling the furniture is one day.

The glass finishing at the table top lays to be just another option at hand. For a DIY project, purchasing glass can be outward contradictory to the whole DIY aim. But the sheer beauty and sophistication the glass provides are unquestionable.

If glass proves to be too impractical, you can try the same wood pallets as an alternative. Other finishing that you can put in is recycled plastic platforms, used aluminum sheets, used glass, etc. There are endless possibilities if you are imaginative enough.

The high geometric yield of the 2-tiered pallet coffee table design fits well in working spaces. It creates a strong, solid energy that can truly help you concentrate. Nevertheless, its minimal tone but complex structure balance effects in the space, composing elements for a flashy, modern feel.

The 2-tier pattern can be complicated if you have not yet mastered its nitty-gritty. Its thick placements may require quite a number of wood pallets. But you do not have worry about this if again as recycled pallets are the definite priority. Ultimately, there are a lot of styles that you can adapt for your own tiered pallet coffee table.

3) Vintage Outdoor Pallet Coffee Table

If you have your eyes set on vintage materials, then you are bound to be in love with this DIY project. With a guaranteed fast result, this table design reigns among the practical projects ever introduced. The vintage look on this table design has got to thank the repurposed bunk-shaped pallet boards. The pallet boards per se can recreate a mid-century, worn-out coffee table. While this was not a thing in the past, it surely is a thing now in the present.

You can apply your own preferred styles to the design. It can come off as clean tier-patterned table structure, plain decked table format or a rounded coffee table format. Everything is practically your call. More so, this table design carries in neutral response to diverse designs/patterns.

The table design can be best explored with wheeled legs. This should make table transport fast, slick and easy. Consequently, this table design can function well inside busy spaces like a restaurant, fast food chain or themed hotel. Suppose the themed (rustic) aura of the table design bothers your general décor, you can actually apply colored finishing on it.

The pallet wood platform format patterns for this kind of DIY projects also vary. The patterns are highly dependent on the innate structure of your available wood platform. Technically, you cannot be driven by the patterns. Patterns exit to supplement your design. Thus, the design gets the upper hand in this case.

4) Mini Pallet Coffee Table

Of all the DIY table design outputs listed herein, nothing beats the multi-faceted nature of the mini-pallet coffee table. First off, this cute miniature table works as a satisfactory side table. Its mini, cute output hails it as the perfect side table.

It’s being a coffee table simply works as an understatement. Ultimately, its flat, clean and smooth top, supported by large fat legs can instantly mark it the best chess board. But, it can actually be any more than what is expected of it if you will it so.

Side tables serve to cozy up to the living room in your home. But, it can go as far as providing coziness in any spaces. As an immediate result, the potent side-table structure of this design comes in various styles. Its styles can actually go infinite. Now, matched by your creativity, the table design can potentially climax into being the most fitting side-table in your space.

The table design’s chessboard-style stands firm from its highly-modern thick-legged placement. Through such placement, the table can function as a highly-stable furniture.  All these conditions weigh the design as a grounded, plump but stable addition in your space. But mind you- it actually is a worthy addition.

The design’s miniature package makes it an artistic statement. Miniature designs transform any space into a livable, warm and cozy environment. Technically, miniature designs alone can carry all the burden in designing and composing elements in your space.  Without its miniature-inspired effect, this design would not have the same magic it holds now.

5) Small Pallet Coffee Table with Wheels

Like the vintage table design, this one perfectly matches outdoor use. You can assign this table design to patios or gardens. Nevertheless, it should also not hurt to assign this table design indoor. As long as it works for you and your décor, the small pallet table design can be in any place at your will.

It is interesting to note that this particular design shares a major affinity with the mini pallet coffee table and the vintage outdoor table designs. In fact, these table designs are overtly related in some sense. This probably has to do with these tables made from wood pallets. All-in-all, the small pallet coffee table bears the efficiency of the mini coffee table and the ease of the vintage table design. Most of all, this design completely satisfies the hunger most rustic décor fans.

Making the table plan should, under the idea that you are using repurposed wood blocks, should not take many hours. Its placement and patterns have been deemed practical. But either way, there is no need for you to worry about its finesse for all tables are bound to be completed with such finesse. To help you better with the construction is a comprehensive sketch-planning.

You can attach casters to the table’s legs for easy mobile action. This particular feature of the table is believed to draw in wide patronage to its name. The caters maintain a stable balance in the table, stabilizing it for a sturdy performance. Many refer to this as a well-thought feature among DIY pallet wood coffee table plans.

6) Crate Coffee Table

Image source:

Nothing can look gorgeous than pallet crates being turned into a table. Very complicated to look yet easy to construct, this coffee table design is every novice builder’s friend. Appearing rustic in a long run, this table design blends in with fine to light colors in the background. Due to its gorgeous crate effect, it can jive in with the entire décor backdrop.

The most recommended paint color for its wood pallets is a stain. It is because stain hues add up to its being rustic. It is fine to look at and most of all, it makes the coffee table bulk look neat. Stain paint hue is synonymous with rustic décor. Suppose, you prefer to diverge away from the rustic, the stain effect will still work. In other words, it matches all decors therein.

You can add casters under the base of the coffee table. Casters have emerged as an ultimate trend in today’s coffee tables. The need for mobility perhaps draws this to become a norm. Coffee tables, for a reason, are built to be moved around.

Some designers even intend coffee tables to become collapsible. Thus, it would be safe to assume that coffee tables were originally built as a staple furniture. So, attaching casters to it must be a reasonable action.

Holding together the crate coffee table design are pieces of plywood. The plywood act as default platform for the crate pallets. Any plywood would do for this DIY idea as long as it is stable. Now, pallet crates prove to be the most interesting mix in this DIY project.

Why? Because, the crates could be any unused drawer sections, condemned wood materials, etc. More so, it should be fun and surprising, in the construction process, to discover how much these wood pallets can do!

7) Old Window Coffee Table

Image source:

Building coffee table projects can be impractical these days, especially when you have to work in the holidays to hit deadlines. But there is one big difference that can ultimately turn that statement to its flipside.

And, that is fun, easy, fast and versatile project method. This is further supported by the old window coffee table idea! After all, given the table ideas of this kind, building coffee table is otherwise practical.

Made entirely from used wood pallets, this table design proves to be cost-efficient to the tee. The whole process only requires a labor of love, fun, and creativity. Firstly, all you have to do is break apart the wood pallet and separate its wood decks into sections. You can then later organize these decks together for a solid, stable tabletop. You can add in more depending on spaces that need filling in.

Sanding the wood surface should be the second priority. Sanding the wood decks, besides smoothening them all out, elicits the wood’s natural color. This process definitely justifies the old window effect aimed by the idea. However, if you prefer your woods rough, it should be fine. But I am telling you- sanding gives your table a totally different effect.

This table design should look best with a fine wood coating. Leather finishing, varnish or polyurethane are the upbeat coatings for its kind of wood. The coating does all the work making your coffee table rustic.  Thus, the old window character of this table design accounts much to the general rustic feel.
