Make Use Of That Old Pallet By Turning It Into A Coffee Table!
I recently found some old wood pallets stacked inside our warehouse as I was doing some reorganizing. The wood seemed so good that I hated to throw it away so I decided to do some research. I was amazed to find the many different ways in which these pallets could be used for repurposing, one of which is the cool idea of making it into a rolling coffee table.

I LOVE free things. When I was walking by World Market on my way home a few months ago, I saw a bunch of pallets sitting by the recycling/garbage area.
I decided to check them out and really liked one of the pallets. I took it but knew I would not be able to carry it home. So I waited 20 minutes for the cab. It cost me $5.
I decided to make a coffee table from mine.
