How to Paint and Distress a Pallet Wood Coffee Table
Creating a beautiful, rustic pallet wood coffee table is a fun project that you can do in an afternoon. Here are the steps you need to take to achieve the perfect weathered look.
1. Gather Your Materials
- Pallet wood
- Latex Paint
2. Assemble the Table
Measure and cut your pallet wood to ensure that the pieces fit together properly. Use the screws to secure the pieces in place.
3. Prime and Paint
Apply a coat of primer to your assembled table. This will help the paint adhere to the wood. Once the primer is dry, apply two coats of latex paint. Let each coat dry completely before applying the next one.
4. Sand and Distress
Once the paint has dried, it’s time to give the table a distressed look. You can do this by sanding the edges and corners of the table. This will give the table a softer, more rustic feel.
5. Seal the Table
After sanding, use a sealer to protect the wood and help maintain the distressed look.
6. Enjoy Your New Coffee Table!
