How to Make a Coffee Table with Glass Top
A DIY coffee table with a glass top is a great addition to any living room or den. Not only is it an attractive piece of furniture, but it also extends the visual depth of the room, creating an illusion of greater space. Read on to learn how to build your own custom coffee table with a glass top.
- Coffee table frame kit
- Glass top piece
- Wood screws
- Wood glue
- Paint (optional)
- Start by assembling the base of the coffee table with the frame kit. Once the base is complete, measure the appropriate size of the glass top and cut it down to size.
- Using sandpaper, lightly rough up the edges of the frame and glass top. This will help the wood glue adhere properly to the surfaces. Apply wood glue to the frame and glass top, then use wood screws to secure the two pieces together.
- If desired, use drill and wood screws to add extra support for the glass top.
- Let the glue and screws dry overnight, then apply a coat of paint or stain to the wood frame if desired.
Now you should have a beautiful, custom coffee table with a glass top perfect for your home. Be sure to place the table on a floor mat or rug to help protect it from scratches and wear and tear over time. Enjoy your new coffee table!
