Don’t eat off of it! This DIY project has all the right look of a farmhouse table. Unfortunately the top is made of treated fence pickets which contain harmful chemicals that you don’t want on your skin, let alone on food and utensils.
We see a lot of beautiful furniture and updates that are made with materials that should not be in a home. Pallet wood and even railroad ties are very popular for their rustic look, but many times these materials contain harsh treatment chemicals for exterior use.
If your project ideas have materials that are sourced from the unknown, consider an alternative. Be mindful of what you bring into your home!
