I've been meaning to build a coffee table for a few months now. About a month ago we received a hutch from some family friends. The back of it was made of 3/4" tongue and groove boards. So, I used those boards to make the top of the table and a couple of 2x4's to make the base. It's got a cool rustic feel that goes really well with the beach chic design that we have in our living room. For the design i really liked the look of the x picnic table, so I modified it for a coffee table.
Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine and reclaimed lumber for the tabletop
I just put a polyurethane on the top. The base is Rustoleum Heirloom White with a clear coat top finish.
