I think you skipped the step where you infilled the gaps in the boards. Not a bad looking project though, I love it!!

It was no big deal. Just cut a board of the same size to make it fit in the gaps.

love pallet projects like this- biggest problem is finding a nice pallet like the one used that isn't cracked/split, etc. !

Espionage718 (author)  daprice2 years ago

Yes. It takes a while to find a good pallet

I may use the pallet I have not for a table, but to make an uber size dolley for moving stuff. I'll just have to get the heavy duty swivel casters good for some weight

That looks beautiful :) I love the dark stain with the old wood, our bedroom set is similar.

Yeah the dark stain is cool, but next time I will work with a lighter stain :)
