Wood Pallet Dining Table

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.
