DIY Pallet Coffee Table & Autumn Decor

DIY Pallet Coffee Table with Hairpin Legs & Fall Autumn Decor Decorations - Happy Thanksgiving

I know most people have already started to shift gears and embrace the winter holidays but I’m still lingering all over my autumn vibes. Christmas tends to overshadow fall by creeping its way in earlier and earlier every year. So with all my autumn decor still donning my apartment, I wanted to share some photos of the decor I used for Thanksgiving and feature a simple DIY Pallet Coffee Table I made with hairpin legs. This table might easily be the quickest piece of handmade furniture I’ve ever made!

DIY Pallet Coffee Table with Hairpin Legs & Fall Autumn Decor Decorations - Happy Thanksgiving - Wood Slice Cutting Board

This will be a pretty self explanatory DIY tutorial:

1. Pick Your Wood
Choose the pallet or piece of wood you want to work with. I found a pallet close to the shape I wanted. The boards aren’t perfectly squared but I figured that would just add character so I left my pallet as is.

2. Sand and Stain
Sand your piece to smooth out the surface; I always prefer to use the cushioned sanding blocks. Follow up with the stain of your choosing. I use a brush to apply an even coat, and use a rag and a wood shim to get in the cracks between the wood since I stained it as is rather than staining and putting together after the fact.

3. Attach the Legs
It’s possible to get cheaper hairpin legs but I didn’t want to skimp on quality and I also loved the idea of them being hand made by a guy named Jimmy in Kansas City. He owns his own business where he makes all his products himself. You can even custom order if you have more specific needs other than what he typically offers. The legs come with everything you’ll need, aka screws and floor protectors. Simply place your legs in the four corners, drill in the screws, and BAM, you’re done! A brand new pallet coffee table!

I can’t begin to recount how many compliments we receive on this table and it’s always a good conversation starter when we have guests over. The table is also incredibly easy to decorate with and transitions well through the seasons.

Also featured in this post are two other DIY projects I still have yet to post about. I was a little too eager in wanting to use them for the Thanksgiving holiday, but don’t worry, those tutorials are on their way! Be on the lookout for the DIY Chalk Platter & the DIY Wood Slice Cutting Board. I mean, look how seamlessly that wood board integrates with the other fall decor while adding some varying height to the table, and I’m sure it will transition well as seasons and decor change. And that chalk platter? I mean come on! I can write any message I want for whatever the occasion may be!
