Homemade Coffee Table

Despite being a relatively recent entrant onto the furniture scene historically, the coffee table has most definitely become ubiquitous. We not only set our drinks and snacks on it while watching TV or entertaining guests, it’s also home to our books, magazines, remotes, and maybe some special objects we’ve picked up on our travels. A coffee table is the perfect spot to play games with our kids and friends. And it’s the most natural place to kick up our feet at the end of the day. There’s no lack of coffee tables to buy in the modern era. But it’s a simple enough piece of furniture, that you can easily make your own coffee table. While a coffee table is very functional, it can add great style and character to a room. DIY coffee table ideas abound, and if you’re a devotee of the 3Rs in design (reuse, repurpose, recycle), you will have no lack of inspiration. Build a coffee table with pallets or crates. Upcycle a door, a tire, or even tree stumps into the next coffee table trend. When designing your own DIY coffee table, keep a few basic spacing guidelines in mind. Allow 18” between the coffee table and seating. That will give you enough leg room, while still making the table a comfortable distance to reach out to and set drinks. While there’s a range of heights that work for a coffee table, target within 4 inches of your sofa to keep the room looking balanced. Now, check out our favorite DIY, high style-low budget coffee tables, and get to work! By Sara Carpenter Expanded View >

In many people’s minds (although I know some of you disagree), one of the main reasons for a coffee table’s existence is to have a place to kick up one’s feet after a long, hard day. So why not make it padded and comfortable…. like, say, an ottoman? Not So Newlywed McGees created a beautiful tufted coffee table ottoman by upgrading an old coffee table with some foam, batting, gorgeous printed fabric, nail head trim, and a lot of love.
