There are so many unusual side tables that you can DIY yourself with little to medium skill. And after making one myself in an afternoon that looks more complicated than it actually is, I thought I’d put a list together to inspire you to reach for your tools.
For the last two months, I’ve been renovating and making my first pieces of furniture for our living room. I started with making shaker style radiator covers which taught me some basic and essential carpentry techniques. I highly recommend trying something as it encouraged me to make a string of pieces. Each giving me confidence to dive in to the next project.
Also, it helped by being put off IKEA prices on a recent window shopping trip and realising I’d be better off investing tools and not heavy mark ups. I bought things that I can use time and time again, but designing things for our needs and not something manufactured to suit the majority.
And when faced with an empty corner, an unusual side table was the answer. Particularly to create a calming plant table and add more oxygen in to the room. So here’s a selection of unusual side tables you can DIY yourself.
