To make a similar table you’ll need one or two pallets, 4-caster wheels, some white, blue and red paint, a paint brush, 16 zinc-plated screws and washers, 8 zinc-plated screws #12 size, a screwdriver and a ratchet bit. Start by cleaning the pallets and let them dry.

Attach two of the pallets together and use screws to keep them that way. You can paint the flat either before or after you do that. Use the paint and a paint brush and make sure you respect the scale. For the stars you can use a stencil. Apply as many coats of paint as you need to in order to get it right. Make sure you let each color dry before you start with another one. At the end, attach the rods and the table is done.{found on mysocalledcraftylife}.
