Support upcycling by getting yourself a pallet coffee table. Wooden pallets used to transport cargo and goods are thrown away as soon as the goods are delivered. Because they are made of either soft or hard wood, they can support a lot of weight without being damaged. Some look old and rustic, which makes them perfect for industrial or farm houses.
Pallet coffee tables are currently big in Europe. You can even find a few of these in upscale lofts and homes. Scroll down and you will find different versions of pallet coffee tables, from lacquered to gorgeous pallet coffee tables on wheels.
