If you're looking for some rustic charm at a very affordable price, I suggest you put on your crafter's cap and take a good long look at the Shipping Pallet Dining Table. This do-it-yourself project upcycles wood pallets into a useful piece of furniture for your home.
Created by Jen Turner, the Shipping Pallet Dining Table was featured on ReadyMade with full step-by-step instructions. Inspired by a trip to Paris when her friend Julien cobbled one together on a whim, Turner decided to bring this concept to New York. I'm glad she did.
