You know that feeling when you make something really, really  awesome and you can’t wait to show it off?! Or is that just me….? Well today is the day for that my friends! I’ve had a mish-mash of furniture in my living room ever since my husband and I moved in together. Even though there is still a lot of change that needs to happen *cough*newcouches*cough*, I am SO excited to be sharing the build plans for our brand new Modern Coffee Table.

I look at this photo and I can’t even believe that it’s my living room. It’s amazing how changing one piece of furniture can completely transform a space!

I LOVE the design I came up with for this build. I’ve had it my my head for what seems like a loooong time. My husband (aka. my woodworking guru) of course helped me with the build and I’m so glad we were able to get it done.

There were a few things I needed out of this new coffee table 1) Something that could withstand a beating from toddlers, 2) Something modern and chic, 3) Something that showed the beautiful natural grain of the wood. I think we accomplished all of that on this project!

I love the way the legs come up to the same level of the tabletop so that you can see the different wood grains next to one another.

We also made sure to add adjustable feet because if measurements of sanding are even 1/8″ off, it can make for a very teetery coffee table.

  1. Looks nice but since you are using building lumber that’s hasn’t been sufficiently kiln dried for interior furniture how do you prevent it from shrinking and possibly cracking once the moisture in the wood equalizes with your indoor humidity? It’s going to drop 5-6% moisture over 6months to a year which will result in quite a bit of shrinking. I see a lot is diyers using building lumber and cringe at what the stuff looks like after a year in a stable humidity.

    1. Hey! Yeah, I should definitely have clarified that we’ve had that wood stacked in our heated garage for well over a year and that we’ve used it with other projects so we knew it was ready to build with. Thanks for your comment! Great info for those who may not have known this!

    1. Awesome! I’d LOVE to see a pic if you make it! I still have the cheap IKEA end tables (as you can see in the pics!) and I can’t wait to upgrade those too!
