Finally, a post that’s NOT about sewing! Aren’t you excited?! Ever since we assembled the Karlstad, we knew we needed a new coffee table. A couple of weeks ago we sold the coffee table on Craigslist to give us the kick in the pants we needed to figure it out. And here she is!
We got the legs from here (we got 14″ legs – measure your couch to figure out what height you want your coffee table at.) We used premium pine 1″x6″ and 1″x2″ and broke in our new Kreg jig for the build. (Side note: pocket holes are my new favorite thing). The stain is a water based wipe on stain from Minwax in Walnut and we used Annie Sloan clear wax on both the table top and legs.
We are SO happy with how it turned out. While it’s not perfect, it cost significantly less than the ones I had my eye on. Oh and then there’s the satisfaction of the whole DIY aspect.
