I’ve been on the hunt to find a super simple furniture DIY that anyone can do by simply finding the supplies and recreating the project on their own. No cutting wood or welding involved! I took a little trip to Lowes with the kids one day to research and see what my options were. I wanted something that was modern, simple, sleek and of course, Scandinavian-inspired.
I’ve been really drawn to the idea of low coffee tables. They are still functional, but a lot more subtle and contemporary. Besides, who makes these rules anyway – that coffee tables need to be a specific height?! So, I created two coffee tables with this design in mind!
Here are the supplies you will need
Here’s how to make it
In order to keep the tables looking sleek, I went with three step stair frames as legs for each table, instead of your traditional four. I decided to do one table with white and the other black, since I couldn’t decide what I liked more! (Heads up: the steps come with stickers that are quite difficult to remove, but with the help of a little gasoline they came off a lot more easily)! Simply pre-drill two holes for the screws per leg.
With a screw driver, place two screws and washers in the two holes on the thin, flat metal surface of the legs. Repeat until all legs are secure to the table top. Be sure to pre-measure the distance of the legs so they are all centered. I chose to keep the pine top natural and as-is.
I love the mixture of wood and metal and I am so happy with how this project turned out! It takes a matter of minutes and you have so much fun putting the pieces together. Honestly, anyone can do this!
I still love our Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table, but it’s so nice to have a little bit of change and some options. The best part is, these tables would make great plant stands, side tables, bedside tables, plus more!
