DIY coffee table ideas

Paris, France

Coffee tables have got an inevitable place in interior designing. However big the space is, a coffee table adds a touch of comfort and luxury. It can be in the living room or in the bedroom to make the room cosy.



If you have read my last post, I just moved to a new apartment and I spend most of my time in Pinterest. There are endless ideas and inspirations and it was kind of difficult to decide the coffee table for my small living room.

I wanted to do one myself but I didn’t have time and I have other decors to take care of. So, I bought it in IKEA. It is a rectangular metal table with glass top. But I found many creative and easy DIY coffee tables that I thought that I would share with you!

This is my personal favorite. A classic rectangular table with a Scandinavian touch. I love how airy and fresh it looks.

This table is from IKEA (VITTSJÖ), which is remodeled. This is the one I chose for my apartment in black.

Just one of the ideas on how you can use old wooden cases.


Hairpin legs are so on trend now. You can add them to any piece to create a table. You can even find other types of metal legs to go with any type of table base.

You can replace the regular one piece wooden slab by a piece of drift wood to get a luxe and unique coffee table at a low cost.

 An inverted metal basket can turn into a table.

A piece of log and a glass plate makes a sophisticated table. One more brilliant idea which costs next to nothing is using a cable spool as a table. You can usually find one abandoned by the roadside (if you are lucky!)

Who would have thought that a window could be a table? And it makes an excellent display of little decorative items. I might put some crystals there or a small self-sustaining ecosystem. What would you do?

In the same style, why not use a vintage box or suitcase? Excellent storage for magazines (or you can hide your bottles!)

So, do you have a coffee table? Which one do you prefer? 


Take care
