A post on ideas for DIY coffee tables seemed like a perfect fit today. I’ve been hunting for the right coffee table for my living room, but so far have had no luck. We have a fireplace in our living room. **Let me stop there for a second. Yes, we live in Florida. And yes, we feel it gets cold enough to use it during the winter. ** Okay, back to the post. Facing the fireplace is the couch in front of which the coffee table will sit. I need a table that we can put our feet up on and relax when the fire is going. Or anytime I just want to kick back in that room and read. All of our furniture has to be able to withstand 3 dogs, 2 cats and us. But it has to have style and be very comfortable. Since I’ve been unable to find what I want, I’ve been considering making my own.
If you want to make a unique coffee table, this is a chance to get very creative. Just about anything that can sit on the floor and offer surface space can work as a table. Sometimes you have to use a little imagination to get it to function properly, but that’s part of the fun. In looking for inspiration for DIY coffee tables I came across some really cool ideas.
