How to make a coffee table with pallets

A beautiful wooden coffee table is one of the best ways to give a living room an instant upgrade, but anything you find in a furniture store is guaranteed to cost you an arm and a leg.
Instead of shelling out big bucks for a new coffee table, why not grab a couple old pallets and make one? Watch the video tutorial and check out the instructions below to learn how it's done. You can paint the table any color to make a statement or keep it neutral to blend in.
