Pallet furniture is a beginning DIYer’s dream come true. There are so many different ways that pallets can be used to create furniture and, if you need it, extra storage. This post is a quick and easy way to make a pallet coffee table.
As promised, I am demonstrating how I made the cedar top for my DIY Island last week. This particular tabletop build is done using 6″ construction grade cedar planks. Now if you know anything about cedar, you know that the construction grade lumber is quite rough, and it may seem like an unusual choice for a DIY tabletop. However, it actually makes a beautiful rustic piece when done properly. In fact, if you try it, you may never want to use standard pine (most DIYer’s wood of choice) again.
MY Easy DIY Island…
Just recently I decided to build a DIY island to go in my guest house. I really wanted a cedar topped island, but knew that this was not the typical countertop material for an island. But, I decided that I would go ahead with the project and try to demonstrate how to easily throw one of these together using only wood materials that can be found at any big box store.
Reupholster Leather Chair… or just replace the damaged Parts.
Not long ago, I replaced the leather (or pleather) on the seat cushions in my theater room. They had become worn and were beginning to peel. I thought that I could get away with just reupholstering the seats, because everything else looked fine. But, wouldn’t you know it. Just a few months after completing the seat cushions, one of the backs began to peel, as well. This is what it looked like just before I got around to reupholstering it. So, I guess technically this article is on how to replace the back cushions more so than on how to reupholster leather chair (s).
