Make a Barbie Coffee Table

Having a full sized Barbie? Then why not transform it into something fun and stylish like a Barbie Coffee Table? Here’s how:

Things you will need

  • A Barbie Doll
  • Table saw
  • Plywood
  • Wood Glue
  • Wood Stain
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Sandpaper
  • Paint Brush
  • Small Hammer & nails

Step by step instructions

  • Cut down the Plywood

    Using a table saw or hand saw, cut your plywood into two pieces. Cut one piece into a 12 by 12 square and the other into two sections that are 11.5 by 12.

  • Glue the Pieces Together

    Using wood glue, glue the two 11.5 by 12 pieces together, creating a 12 by 24 section. Then glue the 12 by 12 piece on top of the 12 by 24 section.

  • Cut Out the Doll Shape

    Position Barbie on the plywood and trace some light markings with a pencil where the doll will stand. Use a jigsaw to make a hole for the doll to fit in, then use a belt sander or sandpaper to make the edges smooth.

  • Apply Wood Stain

    Using a foam brush and wood stain, apply a generous amount on the table. Allow it to sit for at least 15 minutes and then use a clean cloth to wipe off any excess.

  • Paint a Design on the Table

    Using painter’s tape, create any design you want. Paint it with whatever colors you want using a small brush. Wait for the paint to completely dry before removing the tape.

  • Secure the Doll in Place

    Place the doll in her cutout and secure her with a small hammer and nails. Make sure that the nails are below the surface of the wood.

  • Enjoy your Barbie Coffee Table

    Your Barbie Coffee Table is now ready! Show it off to your family and friends!
