DIY Coffee Table Series Kick-Off!

Today's the day! I'm finally kicking off my DIY coffee table series! If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw a little teaser way back in January when this series was just a twinkle in my eye. Well, it's all coming together and I hope you'll find it was worth the wait. So enough chit chat. Let's get to the free plans!

I've got 18 brand new plans coming, and I'm shooting to add one a day until they're all posted. I'll link them below as they post so you can find all the plans in one handy spot. Click an image below to see the plans for that coffee table!

Need even more coffee tables? Try these plans from our archives:

A few notes on the coffee table series:
  • All the round coffee tables are designed to fit a standard 3' tabletop that you can purchase (Lowe's carries one) if you don't want to DIY the top. You can also cut your own top from plywood, or check out Ana White's tips to cut a circular top with a circular saw. 
  • Tons of you said you love rolling coffee tables. So grateful for your feedback, because that never crossed my mind! Here's the good new: any coffee table in this series (and probably any coffee table you already own or find at the thrift store) can be made into a rolling table by simply adding a set of casters! So if rolling tables are your jam, pick your favorite style and get some wheels on that baby. Amazon has a set of four 1" casters for $10, and a set of four 2" casters for $17.
  • You can also swap out the legs on several tables to change the style. Here are a few favorites to get your wheels turning: 16" hairpin legs, 8" hairpin legs, chunky farmhouse legs. Home improvement stores typically carry at least a few options for table legs, too!
  • Sizing: coffee tables are typically between 15-18" high. My plans play around with that range, but most of them can be adjusted to whatever height you like just by changing the length of the legs. Easy peasy! If you're adding casters, remember to adjust the leg height accordingly. 
  • Let me know if you have any more questions! Happy building!
