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!

  1. Wow, that looks great Cheryl! I really like it and could us something like that behind our sofa. Enjoy your party and the holiday weekend.

  2. So nice to find a blog from someone else who has retired and is trying to downsize. I am in the same position and my husband doesn't want to do anything to the house that "isn't necessary"! Ha ha. My idea of necessary is definitely different than his. Looking forward to reading your posts!

  3. Hi Cheryl,
    Looks wicked nice as they say in Maine.
    I too am an (AWAY) person , that's what they call
    anyone who moves to Maine.
    That hubby is a treasure and a keeper.

  4. Look so great! I pinned something similar a few months back and have been back and forth about actually crating one for my family room...but I think I may now after seeing this awesome post!

  5. I love it! I may have a couch that needs something this awesome.

  6. It seems a much better idea to build your own sofa table because you’ll get just the right one you need. Good post.


I hope you'll leave a Comment . . . they make this blogger's day!
