A really cool coffee table can cover up a whole multitude of family room decorating duds… It becomes the focal point of the room, and takes the attention off less amazing pieces of furniture. How do you get that without spending big bucks? DIY cool coffee table tutorials from these amazing bloggers, of course! So let’s get started! Oh, btw, you can have a really cool coffee table even if you already have amazing furniture too. Can you get too amazing? :)



Our first cool coffee table idea is a suitcase DIY coffee table by ‘The Ruche Blog‘. Lot’s of step by step photos for this easy project, even for beginners! This is clever up-cycling!

Do It Yourself Cool Coffee Tables


While we are on the subject of up-cycling, I really love this pallet DIY coffee table with hairpin legs. (I love most things with hairpin legs, but this is cool!) This is another project suited for beginners, and photos show you how to attach the legs, from ‘Homedit‘.



This crate storage cool coffee table from ‘Ryobi Nation‘ is great for families. The crates pull out like drawers, and would be perfect for toys, crafts, etc…



This farmhouse style DIY coffee table looks like it would last forever, and it’s gorgeous to boot! Check out the tutorial from Liz at ‘Love Grows Wild‘.



From Emma at ‘A Beautiful Mess‘, this wooden DIY coffee table is way cool. Just 2×4’s and hairpin legs! Love this!

Do It Yourself Cool Coffee Tables


Rita and Cane from ‘This Sorta Old Life‘ got inspired to make this cool coffee table from a salvaged door  by a Pinterest pin, and then went about creating a detailed tutorial so you can do it too!



Jen at ‘City Farmhouse‘ made this Ikea hacked barnyard coffee table that looks like a much more expensive piece than it is! Lot’s of step by step photos.



This Ikea hack marble DIY coffee table via ‘Poppytalk‘ is a good example of making a budget project just look expensive!



The last one we have for you is inspirational… From ‘Oh Glory Vintage‘ this cool coffee table idea made from a reclaimed window could probably be made in the same way as the salvaged door table project above.
