Step 1: Gathering Materials
The only difficulty is to dismantle them, many times the type of the nail is being used is the ribbed nail which persists on extraction,and it might tear the wood apart during the process.
Step 2: Building
At first I dismantle the top of the first palette and I add 2 more pieces to have a solid top without space between the woods and I re-nailed them . Then I connected the palettes one above the other using wood patches, to provide stability . For the sides I have nailed two pieces of thin plywood. After I've applied wood stucco on the top to cover the minor gaps between woods. And then a lot of sanding : one pass with thigh sandpaper and a second pass with the thinnest one in order to create a smooth surface for paint.
Step 3: Painting
After that I applied two layers of paint in different colors to give a "wash" effect . It is wise to wait 24 hours drying between layers in order to have a good result.
Then I had the idea of drawing on the top to give a personal artistic touch. I've found the preferred picture through Internet, then I have uploaded it to a site that magnifies and transforms pictures into pdf file, and downloaded it. After I have printed it onto A4 rice paper and with an exacto knife I cut the drawing in order to create my own stencil.
Then with the help of a sponge i painted it. After drying I've applied 3 layers of transparent water based varnish to protect the top and two layers of the same material around the rest of the table.(lot of painting and long time of waiting.
Step 4: Drawers
Instead of handles I used a forstner drill bit to create a hole on each drawer, simple and efficient.
