Coffee Table from Wine Crates

As we all know, a new coffee table is quite expensive, so today will show a solution that with a little skill and creativity you can do it yourself. There are several options for materials, but depending on the table size, you can choose pallets or wine crates.

How to make it: 1. Stain or paint the crates and let them dry. 2. Create a frame with planks, bringing them together with nails, as in the photo. Secure the cross in the middle to the frame using L brackets. This will be the base of your table. 3. Arrange the crates and nail them to the frame. Don’t worry about the hole in the middle. We’ll take care of it in the next step. 4. Measure the dimensions of the hole, cut two pieces from the planks to fit and screw into place on the sides and bottom. 5. Flip the construction upside down and screw a wheel at each corner. 6. Fill the hole in the middle with stones, pebbles or a decorative plant and enjoy your brand new coffee table!

How To Paint Furniture Like a Pro

Here are a few key things that it takes to paint furniture and end up with that polished, professional look.

 1. Use Fine Grit Sandpaper to Sand - For a really polished look, sand really well. Start with 100 grit sandpaper, then go over the piece again with 220 and then 320 or 400 grit sandpaper, until the surface is completely smooth.

 2. Clean Thoroughly – In order to avoid imperfections under the paint, you must clean the piece thoroughly with Windex or TSP. Make sure to get the little dust bunnies out of the corners of beveled edges, using the tips I posted here.

 3. Spray on the Primer – If you do need to prime, use a spray primer in order to get an even surface. The primer that I have found to have a really good smooth finish is Cover Stain spray primer.

5. Spray on the Paint With a Paint Sprayer – I recommend usin…
