About This Project

Pallets, 1/2" plywood, and old antique wood.

I used a combination of Ana-White's Building Plan along with close examination of the Pottery Barn Andover Table to create my Apothecary Console. I've recently picked up a bunch of free pallets and have been experimenting with ways to use them.

Pallets were used for about 95% of this project. The only thin I bought was 1/2" plywood for the doors, 20 wooden knobs, and two sets of hinges. I took some backing off an old dresser and used that for the back and I found an old rotted piece of antique wood at an antique store that I used for the top.

Since I didn't buy 1x12", I had to join together some 1x6"s that I pulled off the pallets. There's a lot more to tell about this project so if you're interested, I documented the whole thing on our blog:


Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used: 
White Valspar gloss white, sanded/distressed, and then Special Walnut. The antique piece of wood just has a coat of Poly.
Estimated Cost: 


This looks fantastic! You did a really great job at keeping the false drawer faces straight and uniform. It looks really great!

Thanks for all the great comments. I think it'll look even better once we paint the foyer....the white is just blending in right now....and I think paint on the walls will really make it stand out.
