I built the World’s Bitchinest DIY Coffee Table™ with them.
It weighs around 800 pounds, but that’s okay.
And here it is in the room –
It’s nice and long (slightly over six feet) so Jim and I aren’t fighting over it when we are watching teevee. And while it’s low, it’s just the exact right height for our sofa. I waxed the top with CeCe Caldwell’s Clear Furniture Wax (again – waxing sucks. I made everyone help).
The Casters were $110, and the butcher block was $129. For $240 we built something we love, that suits our needs and our space. A win all around.
What do you think? Try to be nice. I’m delicate. Melanie suggested the kids will be riding it all over the house and down the stairs, but I put my fingers in my ears and didn’t listen to that.
If you want to make your own coffee table, I still have lots of ideas that Jim didn’t go for. In fact, I feel more table-building in my future.
(I wouldn’t hate it if you pinned this idea either. I am still on the quest for World Internet Domination)
