Furnishing an open kitchen and living area of a tiny home is both a gift and a curse – it’s fun to custom-furnish but quite a challenge to find furnitures of the perfect size. Instead of having our brunch table custom-built, we decided to do an upcycling project that would give us the feel of our past lives’ rustic brunches in Bali.
TOTAL PROJECT COST: Building our brunch table was pretty cheap, only costing us a 6-pack of Carlton Dry for about $20.00, and one fight (which was priceless by the way).
MATERIALS: We drove around for two weeks looking for abandoned wood pallets in constructions sites and on the sides of the road. We found a loot of pile outside what we now declare a secret spot. Our old house mates were moving away and they were gonna throw out a tiny hallway table. We decided to keep that and use it as our dining table’s skeleton.
We immediately started using the table after we finished building it. We are still contemplating if we are gonna paint it or not. We are loving the raw version though (’cause we’re probably just too lazy to decide).
Making the video was also fun as I was experimenting to pull off a creepy/dark video because I really wanted to use the Tom Waits song.

I did the same thing for a tiny kitchen (but full size house), but my wife wasn’t impressed with the results, so I now have an outdoor workbench/grill workstation. Yours looks awesome!

Thanks a lot! We still have to sand and paint but have been putting it off for weeks. We’re loving it. We’re planning to add more wood pallet furnitures. My boyfriend is planning to make a workbench out of pallets, too!
I’m halfway through building a set of shelves with pallet wood! It’s for the workshop so it’s rough …. And has a hidden drawer, shhh!

That’s pretty cool! I’ll follow to see when you post your progress. In the mean time, we’ll be hunting for free pallets this weekend (my favorite part of pallet projects!). Good luck over there!
Thanks! I love craigslist, that’s where I get a lot of mine. Best of luck to you guys!
