My sweetie wants to replace our current coffee table with one she found on the inet. DIY Storage Coffee Table & YouTube Video Tutorial! - Shanty 2 Chic
Since I am currently banned from any type of lifting and sawdust making (eye surgery), I decided to draw the plans. Got-er-done!
If I don't forget, I will be ready to get to cutting as soon as the doc releases me.
Note: I plan to use the project panels available at Lowe's. Since they come in 24 inch widths and various lengths, I hope to minimize waste. Plus I have a lot of stuff on the lumber rack.
After staining it with Rustoleum Kona and hitting it with a little clear stuff, it will be ready to go.
The current table has a base under it with hidden casters. I plan to reuse the base and build the new table to fit over it. No need to reinvent the wheel.
Our current table has survived two years but several slats have broken and had to be replaced. During the holidays, I covered the top with 1/4 inch plywood and a table cloth so it would be useful for folks to sit their plates and drinks.
The new table will have lots of storage under the lids.
The first picture is our current table (another internet sensation!).
I will post some build pictures as I go.
