I was asked to build a 4’ picnic table for the Mississippi Modern Homestead Center. After a bit of discussion, I got approval to build a children’s table out of pallets to stay with their re-purpose theme. The build took nearly all of 6 pallets plus 4 table legs from my wife’s old dining table and the paint was left over paint from my Christmas toy boxes. $0 spent on materials. I also made a hidden storage tray in the middle of the top. For a long, descriptive, picture and video filled article check out my writeup on my website.

Hopefully it wasn’t a table your wife was still using.

Good job, good use of salvage.

Great way to recycle Jay. You have inspired me to do something with a bunch of pallets that I recently disassembled. The colors really look good together. I’m certain that the children who use it will be glad to have it. Take care.
