Look What You've Done: Mel's Pallet Coffee Table... April 24 2014, 0 Comments

A few weeks ago, a nice young lady from Quebec named Mel bought four of our 4 inch cast iron Vintage swivel casters. Through various messages on our Etsy store, she said that her intent was to use them to spice up a hand-crafted coffee table made from reused and upcycled shipping pallets, and I made her promise to send me pictures of the finished product when she was done.

She did not disappoint! Here are a few shots she sent me of what she came up with...

Love love love the Anchor Brewing theme! Love it so much! Those wonderful people out in San Francisco make some of the most delicious beer you'll find anywhere.

Here it is from a wider angle. You can tell she put a lot of time and effort into this project, and it looks great. She even added multiple shelves and smaller flat surfaces so she'd have many different places to misplace her remote. Ha!

Here you can see exactly how the casters make this a truly unique piece. I've seen a ton of poorly-made pallet coffee tables with casters someone picked up from the Home Depot (gross!) and they just don't give you that Vintage-Industrial feel that something with a spoked wheel hub and non-shiny finish on the swivel fork does. Mel went above and beyond, and you can tell she's going to get many a compliment on her coffee table during her next dinner party. Assuming she does dinner parties, of course.

Many thanks to Mel for sharing her work with us! I couldn't be more proud to have my product displayed so wonderfully on such a unique piece of furniture. Working with DIY enthusiasts is the best part of doing what I do.
