DIY Pallet Wooden Steel Side Table We have gone purely with home dumped scrap and old and rustic wood to make this electrifying model of steel and wood mixed together in shape DIY wooden pallet side table. The idea is in terms of recycling ideas to offer everyone an affordable budget plan to have these enjoyable lovely furniture delights. We have also manufactured some storage need by using old metal drawer which we had thrown to be rot on a rubbish pile. The steel frame from an old metal table is filled with well sanded and shined pallet planks to provide us a pleasure of this multiple use table. This would definitely work ideally as a potting table and end table. The whole skeleton of DIY pallet steel side table is constructed in dimensions 14” inches in width and 20” inches in length, and about 34” inches in tallness.

Kevin showed us the process he uses (watch a video of him patching a piece of chipped veneer with Quickwood), and the resulting repair is so realistic that it’s hard to spot.

Stripping, Repairing, and Upholstering a French Chair, Part 1 - Shades of Blue Interiors I decided to show a “play by play” if you will, of how to strip, repair, and reupholster a chair for the absolute beginner.

Stripping, Repairing, and Reupholstering a French Chair, Part 3 This post will be showing how to paint (white wash) the frame, & place, cut and staple fabric onto a chair. I wanted it to also be showing the final finished product with the gimp trim, glued in place, however, after I went to Joann’s and Hobby Lobby this morning, I found they were COMPLETELY out of white gimp!
