Let’s face it, furniture is often one of our most expensive buys when decorating on a budget… and when it comes to the living room, the coffee table gets a lot of attention. We serve off it, play games on it, let it display some of our cherished possessions, and even store the remote there! Here are some great tutorials for DIY coffee tables that add character and charm to your room, but don’t put a dent in your budget! Our featured project (below) is an industrial style DIY coffee table. This would be a big hit with my decor, I really like this. House Updated has lots of photos and step by steps on how they made this.
This project is what inspired me to write this post… a birch log table designed by BHG. They have complete directions on how to create this cool, one of a kind coffee table. I think I would add glass to the top!
Almost Makes Perfect found this raw steel metal base for $60 and created this just about perfect mid-century style coffee table… Love this!
Another DIY industrial coffee table from The Locker.
This old door coffee table is one of the cutest ways I’ve seen to re-pupose! Love this from Sweet Pickins!
Creating an ottoman from a coffee table is exactly what they did over at Newlywed Mcgees.
This project is great on the budget, but requires a little more actual work….yes, that nasty word! But look what you get when you create this lovely wood pallet DIY coffee table from The Merry Thought!
Give one of these a try…I’ve been looking for something to add more character to my living space, I think this project might be it! (Though Im still stuck on making one of the DIY Faux Fireplace projects from one of our earlier posts!)Image Credits: The Locker, House Updated, BHG, Almost Makes Perfect, Sweet Pickins, Newlywed Mcgees
