Make a cozy and functional coffee table with simple stained wooden crates and some nails.
It only takes a few hours to complete the perfect, spacious and inexpensive DIY coffee table of your dreams. Simply head out and buy some wooden crates—remember the larger and sturdier the better—wood stain and some nails. Start off by staining your wooden crates then let them dry completely before setting them up in a square. After they’re dry, nail each crate together and make sure it’s secure until you achieve the formation above.
Cool factor: You can paint the wooden crates whatever color you prefer if you’re feeling a little more adventurous. Go ahead, get a little crafty.
