Bring some character into your home by designing and creating your own bespoke coffee table. Okay, this might seem rather difficult, but it’s actually really simple, especially if you have a few crates laying around the house.
Follow our easy tutorial to create your own coffee table, side table, or even some storage for the laundry room.
What you need
4 wooden crates
2 (1×4) pieces of pine wood
Before you get started on actually building the table, make sure to stain the crates first. Use a homemade stain (vinegar, steel wool, and brewed tea) or choose a ready made stain which requires a little more waiting time.
When the stain has dried, create a frame by nailing each piece of pine wood into a small square (looking somewhat like a window). This will also dictate the size of your coffee table.
