a pallet end table

The versatility of the pallet never ceases to amaze me. And thanks to Pinterest the uses for pallet woods never end for me, I can always find something more for Matt to makey. 

When we got married in 2006 we registered for furniture from Target. And thanks to a very generous aunt and uncle that's the set we lived with for the subsequent six years. We replaced the sofas at that point but the end tables were kept even though they didn't quite fit (seen here in the after section). The coffee table as well, much to our undying regret, now replaced with something much more child friendly.

And so with our newly found pallets from our pallet mule I asked Matt to make me a new end table. Rid myself of these end tables! Banish them from my sight! Stat!

And so here it is in all it's rustic glory. After about ninety text messages back and forth from my mother trying to figure out what looked best on it. She should have just driven the seven minutes over here, it may have been faster. Shopping in one's home is quite the deal isn't it?

Thank you Handy Matty!
