DIY Pallet Coffee Table With A Built In Lift And Slide Out


What can you build with two pallets? Ohhhh…so many things but making furniture is one of my favorites. I’m always on the lookout for new and creative DIYs and this coffee table, featured at Instructables, has caught my eye.

I do love this creative table! It so multifunctional and has so much storage space. Yes, a lot of tables have drawers and shelves built in but not like this. The sides have many small compartments that are impressive on their own but it’s the inside and mechanics that really ‘wow.’

Half of the table can be raised to TV tray height. It slopes up at a gentle angle so none of your decorations will fall off. The other half of the table slides out so you can easily access your treasures. The amazing thing is that this can all be done with two fingers. What a terrific design! I wouldn’t have thought it possible for such a heavy duty table.

This Pinterest board has more pallet table ideas than one person could ever make in a lifetime. In the words of Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother), ‘Challenge, accepted!’
