DIY Coffee Table




I guess I did it again guys! I'm so excited and proud about this DIY project because I still can't get over how beautiful it turned out.  I've been having a lot of fun, decorating, and creating things at home it has just become a huge passion of mine so I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. I'm definitely not a professional and this was actually my very first time creating a piece of furniture from scratch. 


I've been wanting to get a Coffee table like this one and I actually had a bunch of them pinned on my Pinterest board but they were crazy expensive so in my search for inspo I came across @SonelyMateo's video on Instagram and loved the idea of creating one myself so that's exactly what I did, with the help of my beloved husband who cut the Pine boards for me at home and gave me a hand whenever I needed him.  I didn't film a ''Tutorial'' perse, but in my Tiktok video (below) you can see pretty much the basic steps and what I did to achieve this beauty that I now enjoy and have right in front of me. At the very bottom of the post, you can also find some of the things/products I used for my DIY in case you want to recreate your own. 


The overall dimensions of the coffee table - 28'' x 39'' x 16'' Tall.  We used (3)  2''x 10''x 8'' Yellow Pine Wood Boards,  we cut all the pieces we needed at home because we had the tools BUT we've always cut our wood at Home Depot so you can perfectly do that if you don't have the tools or are not willing to invest in some. We needed (3) 39'' planks for our top and (8)  16'' pieces for our legs. I used two different wood stains to achieve this gorgeous color, the first coat with  White Wash Pickling and the second one with Early American. I'm absolutely in love with the table, it's the perfect statement piece in our living room it looks gorgeous and so high-end I'm still amazed. 


 If you guys have any questions please feel free to leave them all in the comment section, I'll be more than happy to get back to you.

  1. Hello I am wanted to build this. Was just wondering if you feel like it needs a clear coat to protect the wood. Concerned it could be rough or get damaged without.

  12. Love this!
    Plan on making it this week. I really love the look but was thinking of adding a shelf closer to the top for storage. Things like TV remotes and books. Possibly in a thin basket. Do you think it would change the appearance too much?
