drop leaf sofa table

Submitted by maggiekat on Sun, 10/25/2015 - 08:24

When we rearranged the living room to create better sight lines for the football games, we lost table space near the sofa. My daughter helped me design these: she asked for the drop-leaf, even though they currently reside over the arms of the sofa.

My sofa is so low-to-the-ground that I couldn't put casters on these. Otherwise, they are Seriously Over-engineered: heavily framed with 2x4s!

Estimated Cost
about $40 for the pair, including the drop-leaf hardware?

Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
pine 1x & 2x lumber
Finish Used
diy chalk paint, made from Mythic paint "Sunny at Heart," finished with 2-3 coats of beeswax/mineral oil rubbed on
