Pallet Potting Table – Rustic Farmhouse

We bought a ping pong table online and it was delivered on a double pallet. I guess you know what that means. Time to make a pallet potting table, right?

I was out of town when it arrived but being the good husband, Barry saved the pallet. He said I knew you’d want to do something with it. It didn’t take me long to come up with an idea.

I searched our scrap wood pile to gather anything that looked like I could use it to create the table part of the potting bench. I did have to buy a couple of 1″x4″ boards.

I put it all together with this and that and a few screws.

Turned it over and used my paint sprayer and painted every inch of it with 3 partial cans of various gray chalk paints.

Stencil –  this part surprised me a little too. One day I was browsing the craft isle at Walmart and I found this Waverly stencil and it reminded me of the popular concrete tiles (that I have fallen in love with and want to rip one of my bathrooms apart just to use it) until then, I will just try to create the look on top of my rustic farmhouse pallet potting bench.

The stencil was complete and I decided to tone it down, give it a distressed look by brushing on another new product that I just discovered, white stain. It turned out perfect, well imperfect, which was what I wanted.

In other unrelated news, I try to plant sweet potato vines every year and they never disappoint.  I have to water these every single day!

  1. I love the potting bench, you did a great job on it! Perfect for parties, or potting. Really like the stencil you added. Very pretty!

  2. Love how it turned out! It would also be great inside as a craft table.

  3. Love your potting/beverage bench! And love that rug under the table. I’ll have to go check out where you bought that from.

    BTW, I saw those stencils at Walmart too! I never go down that aisle and I was pleasantly surprised at some of the stuff they have.

  4. you beat me to it! I made one last year, and I plan on making another one this year, but it’s been too hot!

    I love your pallet potting bench/beverage station. It’s soooo pretty.
