Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Take pallet apart using the pry bar. 
  2. Remove any nails from slats.
  3. Determine the size of your tabletop and cut your slats to length.
  4. Lay out your slats leaving a space in between each.  Measure the slats going across and cut two extra pieces that length for support that will go underneath.
  5. Turn slats over so the bottom of the slats are facing up.
  6. Place the two support pieces across the slats about an inch from the ends. 
  7. Screw the supports into the slats.
  8. While the slats are still upside down, screw the legs into the tabletop.
  9. Turn table upright.  Tape off the stripes as shown in photo and paint.  Remove tape.
  10. Once dry brush on Folkart Satin Varnish.
