Make This Sofa Table for $25

$25.00
1 Hour
Medium

We needed some sort of table behind our sofa to accommodate lighting and for a place to set things since we can't put a table on either side. However we couldn't find a long thin one that wasn't too $$$$. So, I made one!

You need a long pine board, some furring strips and some stair rail legs. Yes stair rails for the legs:)

      The picture is actually a canvas that I got at home goods a few years ago:)

    Do you think this table would stand well on carpet without being wedged between sofa and wall?

    I can't believe I didn't think of something like this sooner. Good job! May be my first job as a carpenter! Lol Have quite a bit of scrap wood I got from a recycling bin (dumpster) at a cabinet shop while dumpster diving, lol, for firewood. Have come across over 100 stair rails, or banister. I can't bring myself to use them as firewood. Now I can use them for this. Yay! Have come across some pretty cool pieces to use as hot plates, coasters, good pieces to use for building, of course. But ended up with a bigger pile for future progects than firewood. Lolol

    So much awesome!!!! I am doing this this weekend. Fabulous idea! Great protection for the walls and preventing the furry four leggers from knocking things behind the sofa! Love Love Love!!
