Something my husband has always wanted to do is make some of our own furniture. Unfortunately, we have always lived in apartments and that doesn’t usually lend itself to carpentry. On top of that, we have lived on the third and 4th floors in the last two apartments we have lived in, so it wouldn’t really work out. Despite this, he likes to look for inspiration for his “one day”.
One of the projects I would love for him to work on would be a coffee table. DIY coffee tables are probably one of the best places to start if you are looking to make some of your own furniture. They employ only basic carpentry skills and tools and you can even make them out of re-purposed or reclaimed wood. Here are 11 Fun DIY Coffee Tables to inspire you to get started on your own project.
