Whatever you call it, I like a good, smalle table to sit next to a chair or couch. Who doesn't need a place to set a cold drink or a warm cup of coffee, a remote, and a great book?
Here are a few of my favorites:
A magnetic game board turned table
I used a cupboard door with LAYERS of paint to make this funky table:
I replaced the glass with colorful wood in this trio of tables.
A table with storage made from a drawer
Barnwood added to an overhead projector cart
Inspired by pallets, I made this rolling storage side table
A washtub became a unique table
Add and stencil a round table top to a stool base
Scrap wood was used to create this sturdy end table
There are so many more ideas. Find something sturdy, personalize it, and make a great little table that will become a favorite in your home.
