Create a Stylish Coffee Table
If you’re looking for an attractive way to show off your living space, a stylish coffee table is the perfect piece of furniture to complete the look. Follow these instructions to make an awesome coffee table of your own!
Step 1: Gather Materials
You will need the following materials:
- 4 pieces of wood (2 long, 2 short)
- Wood glue
- Polyurethane (optional)
Step 2: Cut Wood to Size
Measure out the sizes of the four pieces of wood and use the saw to cut them to the right size.
Step 3: Assemble the Table
Once you have the wood cut to size, it’s time to assemble the table. Start by hammering the nails (or drilling screws) into two of the longer pieces of wood to sandwich the two shorter pieces in between.
Step 4: Sand and Stain the Table
Once the table has been assembled, use sandpaper to smooth down any rough edges. Then, you can stain the table with the color of your choice.
Step 5: Add Coating
Once the stain has been applied, you can finish your table off with a top coat of polyurethane, which will protect it from common accidental spills and scratches.
Step 6: Enjoy Your New Table
Your stylish coffee table is now complete—enjoy displaying it in your living space!
