DIY Removable Tray Coffee Table5:30:00 AM
Does anyone out there change their furniture as much as I do?
I'm pretty sure I'm always looking for something new.
Only a few weeks back I redid this room. My daughter moved out and the den was once again mine.
After living with it for a few weeks and already changing some of the furniture, I decided the coffee table wasn't working.
Yes, the coffee table I just bought. And now I will sell.
The room is very small and the large round table was in the way.
I searched around for a while for a smaller coffee table and then I had an idea.
I brought home a small end table from the thrift store...
The table was kind of a painted mess and a little bit too tall so I cut off about 3 1/2" off the bottom of each leg.
I painted the table white using Fusion Mineral Paint in Casement. Casement is a beautiful flat white color. Fusion Mineral Paint covered the table in 2 coats, this was coat number 1.
When the table was dry I distressed the edges with sandpaper.
I had an old oversized green tray I was holding on to and I gave it a coat of the same white paint, once again distressing the edges.
The table fit beautifully right on top of the small painted table.
The tray can be removed if needed and the small table can be moved to use as an end table.
Think of all the changeable options this gives me!
The room seems so much bigger right now. A smaller (removable) coffee table was the perfect option for this room.
I made the rustic wooden tray and use it all the time with my laptop and the small grey foot stool is so my husband doesn't use the coffee table. See below for my affiliate link.
