It is not strange, but the very small coffee table in your room is often the most memorable part of the overall interior. To add coziness and warmth to your home, it is enough to think over the details. This small “stand for everything” is an ideal option to transform the room.
But in order for your interior to become unique, with a piece of your own creativity, it is worth considering how to make a coffee table with your own hands. After all, in fact, this will not be a big effort.
Where to begin
- Material selection.
Maybe a tree? - with it your interior will sparkle with country music. In general, the tree is most often chosen, namely birch or pine - they are most convenient for such work. Tables assembled from wood by hand are quite common, since if you have a diagram and tools, absolutely everything can cope with this rather easy task. The only minus of wooden tables is their "massiveness" - but with the right choice of wood shade, you can get around this problem.
To varnish or to leave cuts is up to you. Many leave the tree “fresh” for some time - due to the pleasant smell of wood, as well as an element of unusual decor. But, nevertheless, for your convenience, the preservation of the tree, the table you made should be sanded and varnished on top.
Now the fashion for “eco-style” has gone, thanks to which an unusual idea has appeared to make coffee tables from pallets. This is a rather unusual idea, as well as a very economical solution. The main thing is to find and choose a pallet in good condition, made of quality material. Also, there are many ideas on the Internet with the use of tires on which plywood is fixed and wrapped on top with a special decorative cord.
You can use metal or aluminum - from it you can make original inserts or legs of the future table. Such designs, together with a tree, will look quite modern.
- Shape selection.
It all depends on your courage. It can be frightening to bring a good idea to life, because it seems too unrealistic. But if it comes to a coffee table, you can play with pictures. Make a drawing, carefully calculate the amount of material and understand that any idea has a chance of existence.
If you have not so many ideas, but want originality, then on the Internet you can scroll through a bunch of unusual forms and elements to decorate your future coffee table.
It can be a high table in a rustic style, standard square or round, or maybe you want something in a high-tech style or a tetraerd shape - in any case, you will have a lot of space for choice.
- Choice of color and details.
The most interesting part is the scenery and small details. The basis of your creativity will be revealed in them. It is important to choose the right shades, think through the features of your table so that it does not look boring or, on the contrary, “hung” with different styles.
Here you can count on both minimalism - a small number of shades or monotony, and any original solution - an interesting texture and its harmonious combination with brightness.
