After repurposing my vintage trunk, I was out a coffee table. I can’t live without a place to set my coffee and laptop every morning so I got to work building what I thought was the perfect coffee table!
I modified Ana’s plans a bit to fit my couch. We have a sectional that is equal on both sides and if any of you have the same then you know our pain in finding a square coffee table. Of course, the plans were for a rectangle so I had to do some calculations to get a square table.
Here are pics of the steps I took as I went:
Pre-drill all of your screw holes to prevent the wood from splitting.
I used Gorilla Glue Wood Glue to join every piece.
Lookin’ like a table now:)
Wood putty the screw holes. I used Elmer’s Stainable Wood Filler.
Sand the rough edges and wood putty after it dries.
That was it for the building! It was not difficult and I finished it in an afternoon. How did I finish it? I do love what I did with it and that is a tutorial in itself so I will be back to share that you all very soon!
