Wood pallet coffee table with wheels, Homedit contributing article

How did everyone’s weekend go? Ours went wonderful, we had a family get together and a cousin sleep over. Just realized that sounds a little awkward and incest-y. My kid’s had their cousins over for a slumber party. Junk food, giggles, and a late night was had by all. Having two extra kids in the house made the house feel wonderfully active and loud. Also made the house feel like it was bursting at the seams. I got some major crafting and projects knocked off my to-do list. Yay! I have a fun, creative and kid friendly wall art project coming up this week. It may not be perfect, but the kids had a great time doing it. Look out for that!

Today I am over at Homedit sharing this wood pallet outdoor coffee table. You can see the full tutorial and my step by step instructions here. This was a fun one to do and I adore the results. I am loving the rustic and industrial style right now. I have happily found ways to incorporate it into my coastal style home. Give me all the reclaimed wood! Muah-ha-ha!!

This is what the table started out as. 

This weekend we also got some major gardening and re configuring of outdoor plants done. You could call it literal “sweat” equity. It was so hot and humid this weekend. We have had mild summers the last few years, but this summer is showing us what humidity is all about. Also what my hair does. You know how some people have curly hair, straight, or silky hair …? I have frizz, with a dash of WTF for my hair texture. 

Are you following me on Facebook? If not, you should. I shared this on my blog’s Facebook page, and this is the kind of thing you see full time if you are a follower of Our house now a home. Along with some articles, tips, pictures, general talk, behind the scenes and musings. I attempt to be funny and entertaining.  Go here to like me. This beauty of a picture got liked 49 times. I think it was my obvious camera ready hair that made it so possible. This was after digging up and moving a bunch of plants outside. I am back in action with blogging and with projects. 
One thing I am not… a fashion blogger. I do not have the talent for that. I can use a miter saw, paint anything, tell you three different ways to redo furniture. A hair tutorial or break down of my attire, I am not your girl. I do the no make-up, sometimes brushed hair look. Me, making a bench out of wood pallets, I am all about that.

What did you do over the weekend? How much can you relate to my hair situation?

  1. The coffee table looks awesome! I already loved that bench you made, and the combo is just perfect! I feel ya on the hair thing….we had a 40th birthday party yesterday and I thought my hair looked great when we went…when we got home, I looked in the mirror and was horrified!

    1. Oh no! I hate when you think all is good, until you get home. I am sure you looked beautiful. Summer is rough on hair.

  2. That's a great idea for an outdoor coffee table! The tutorial is great!

    1. Thank you!

  3. What a fun way to recycle a pallet. We just made a pallet play house, and it was fun to reuse something that was going to be thrown away. Your coffee table turned out great!

    1. Oh wow, that is a great way to use a pallet! My kids would love a play house.

  4. I love your bench and the table!!! I have had a similar pallet table pinned for the longest. Just waiting on that hubby of mine to make it for me. Can’t wait to see your full post on it! And, I can’t wait until Mason starts having sleep-overs. So fun!!

    1. Have fun with your pallet construction (when your hubby gets to it). The sleepover was a lot of fun and a lot of work.

    This is an awesome DIY! We just found a place to find a ton of palettes for dirt cheap so maybe once we move I'll look into doing something fun like this!! Thanks for sharing!:)

    1. Thank you! You are lucky to find them cheap, we have a neighbor that gets them all the time because of his work. I know some people have a really hard time finding some to work with.
