Our Perfect D.I.Y Coffee Table


Has anyone else ever has an incredibly hard time finding the “perfect” coffee table? Because I sure did… I searched for months… online, craigslist, garage sales, Etsy, HomeGoods, Marshall’s, Hobby Lobby, you name it, I looked there (well sorta). I finally gave up and gave in to an Ashley’s dark brown rectangular coffee table with two drawers, and boy…was that thing HEAVY! I really tried to love it- but no matter how I styled it I just wasn’t a big fan of the shape, the color or the style of the coffee table.

So I went on Pinterest and looked for D.I.Y coffee table ideas and there were TONS of them. I stumbled across a coffee table I LOVED and had to have/make from the girls over at Shanty 2 Chic! it was Perfect, square, rustic looking but not to rustic. I loved it!

My husband and I downloaded the plans and headed over to Home Depot to purchase wood & stain. We had to special order the coffee table legs from Osborne Wood & definitely so worth it the legs make the whole table!


Today I am still in love with the table, although today I’ve styled the table top differently, I’ll post an update on the coffee table & its prettiness soon!
