~how I made our new coffee table~

When we put our new couch in, it was apparent that we were going to need a new coffee table. Something low, and something square.

After searching the web, I couldn't find just the right thing, so I decided to make my own.
I purchased these legs  from Ferrous Hardware, and combined the sleek look of them with some rustic scaffolding planks we had laying in the backyard covered in blackberry bushes.


Below was my inspiration picture, minus the legs:


 So I dug up the wood from the bushes, cut them to the length I needed and sanded them down.
Then I did a side by side to see if I was on the right track.

The next step was to stain the wood. I used a combination of stains to get a variety of colors.
I decided to seal the top with a satin varathane when I was done, to protect it from spills, etc.

Of course this is where I forgot to keep taking pictures, but I will try to explain it as best as I can.
To attach the top pieces together, I cut a piece of plywood 2" smaller the whole way around and screwed it to the back.

Then I ripped down more of the old wood on the table saw to 4" pieces, cut them on the chop saw on a 45 degree angle to make the box for the top to sit on. I didn't stain this, I left it raw with no varathane or anything. I liked the juxtaposition of the dark shiny wood top with the rough grey sides.

Finally, I screwed in the legs and put it in it's home!




I love the rustic wood, even with wording on the sides, combined with the sleek modern legs.


The legs also pick up the bit of chrome on the base of the sectional.




For a full source list, please see yesterdays post on our fall family room.
