DIY Sofa Table...Perfect!

I really wanted a sofa table to finish off our living room at Applegate Lane. The challenge was finding one the right size for our room. To fit the space behind our couch, it had to be quite long, very narrow, and exactly 32" high. Having found nothing that worked locally, I decided to go on line for inspiration.

My fellow bloggers came through.  Cassity at Remodelaholic had a guest blogger,
Alicia from Thrifty and Chic, back in October of last year who posted plans for a simple sofa table
that I was sure DH would love to make for me. We found enough "already-aged with a perfect patina" wood at our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore...under $10.00 for all four pieces.


DH Hank was able to complete the sofa table in an afternoon...
Total cost:  well under $20.00 for wood, two brackets, nails and screws.


There are detailed directions and photos photos posted on the Remodelaholic blog.


And here it is... 


All done and ready for our "Gourmet" Mexican dinner party this weekend.
Hank did a great job!

 
 I think our new DIY blog-inspired sofa table really finishes off the living  room.
 
I'm doing a happy dance!
