Hey friends!  Do you love pallets?  Ummm, dumb question right?  Who doesn’t?  They’re free, have a beautiful worn look, and you can make gorgeous decor from them!  Well, today I’m here to share with you some beautiful, free, and super fast stands I made!

Make a gorgeous center piece this summer using pallets and cans.  Would look gorgeous at a backyard wedding!

I’m not really sure what you would call them though so just stick with me while I keep calling them stands 😉  When I got my pallets I used my circular saw and just cut as close to the nails as I could.  This way I didn’t have to take out any nails.  Plus it was super fast!  I have a project in mind that I want to use some pallet wood on so I will need to figure out how people take them apart while leaving the boards long because I will need them long.  But for this the short boards are perfect.  I don’t even have measurements.  I just took two boards and squared them up on both ends since I wasn’t very perfect when taking the pallet apart.  I also cut 4 small pieces all the same size out of another board.

I took the small pieces and put some pocket holes in them to attach them to the tops.  I used my bestie, my Kreg Jig.  If you don’t have one and you want to get into woodworking go here (Aff. Link) and get yourself one then come back and thank me!  Here they are all ready to attach to the tops.

I chose to put the pocket holes on the legs but you could put them on the top if you want.  There’s no right or wrong here…just do what you want!  I sanded them down just a little bit to make sure they wouldn’t be giving us any splinters.  Go easy on the sanding because you want to keep that gorgeous pallet wood look!  Once they were all sanded and put together I sprayed them with a few coats of sealer.

Isn’t it so pretty?  Eeeek, I love it!  Now we have a pretty place to put our gorgeous flowers.  That is, until they die, of course.  Haha.  Here are some more pictures…

I think this is love!  And those cans!  Who knew trash could be so pretty?!  But let’s recap!  Free pallets broken down into strips plus about 10 minutes and you can have some beautiful stands to display all your pretties!  Now it’s out to the garage to see what else I can do with the rest of my perfectly imperfect pallet wood!

Thanks for stopping by!
