How to Build a Pallet Table for the Patio

Last weekend it was finally warm enough to clean off the patio and get it ready to use this year!  Last year, my honey bought that cute little grill.  It's from Buc-ee's.  We love it because although it looks small, it holds quite a lot of food! Anywhoobs!  He wanted a stand for it so he didn't have to set it on our awesome table that he also put together for us.  The table is just too low to stand comfortably at anyway.
It looks pretty good on the patio with our awesome table! Good job honey!
This is just a standard sized pallet and the wood its made out of is pretty sturdy.
We used some scrap 2 x 4 for the legs.  Most tables are 36 inches tall, this one ended up 32 inches tall so we wouldn't have to go buy any wood.  We just used what we had.
He removed the center board from underneath the pallet using the circular saw.  Save these pieces, you'll need them later.
We cut the 2 x 4s used for the legs at 32 inches long, times 4.  Four legs.  We used the chop saw for that.
Here are the four legs cut at 32 inches each.
Next, using the circular saw again, we cut the pallet into two pieces.  This makes the top and the front shelf.
There is still three boards on the table top and only two on the shelf.
Next, we grabbed the four legs and pre-drilled holes for the screws that will hold them onto the table.
Three holes in each leg top.
We used 2" wood screws and the hand drill to attach the legs.
We added the back to legs first, then laid it down and added the shelf using the same 2" wood screws.
Next we added the front legs, directly behind the shelf.
We used a scrap piece of pallet wood and added a brace between the back legs for sturdiness.  And then the rest of our 2 x 4s to go from the front leg to the back leg to make it even more sturdy.
Since our shelf has no bottom to hold things, we used more scrap wood to add the bottom. Remember the pieces we cut off in the beginning?
The shelf bottoms were added using more wood screws.
Now we have the perfect little table for the grill.  We can also use it for potting plants when the grill isn't in use.
My honey wants to paint it bright colors, but I kind of like it the way it is!  What do you think?

GREAT NEWS!  I now have an Amazon Storefront!  If you ever want to purchase anything I'm showing you here, you can pop over to my shop and see what I've picked out for you! Click right here to visit.

If you loved this idea and want to save it for later, be sure to pin it to your favorite Pinterest board.  I have a Pinterest board all set up just for Patio Beauty ideas and I'm pinning something new every day. 

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
