DIY Side Tables With Greek Key Base

$60.00

My living room was looking a bit too traditional, so I wanted to add some modern touches. I found a Greek key side table online that I really liked, but the price for one table was $549, and I needed two of them. Since I would ever pay $1098 for two side tables, I decided to make my own. I spent about $60 to make two tables.

Each section of the Greek key design is made of five pieces, each cut with a miter saw.

The inspiration table from Shades of Light has a real gold leaf finish and granite top.  Mine has a painted gold finish, and an MDF top sprayed with Rust-Oleum Hammered spray paint in white.

    Wonderful job. Your attention to detail shows in your craftmanship. I agee with placing a glass bottom. I think you did a better job than the high end.
