A Farmhouse C Table (Sofa Table)

Mr Magic made me two of these nifty little tables because when we are sitting in our new sectional, I have nowhere to put my coffee unless I lean wayyyyyyyyyy forward and set it on the ottoman. I know, first world problems, right?

So without any plans, without looking at any Pinterest ideas (he is not on social media), without googling of any kind..... Mr Magic made me this table. And I'm slightly shocked by good it looks. />

Did you know they were even called that? I didn't! I called them "the little tables that scooched under the bottom of the sofa". One of my amazing Facebook followers clued me in ..... they are "C" tables cuz' they are shaped like the letter "c". You guys are so smart!

First, Mr Magic attached metal flanges to a piece of oak wood that we had cut at Home Depot for us. If you watch the video, you'll hear that he is clearly the winner in our "flange or phalange" spelling debate. We were smart enough on the 2nd table to STAIN and TOPCOAT the wood BEFORE putting it all together. You can find the video here at the bottom of the post.

We went back and forth, but finally decided on these pipes, you can see what we used and why on the post. I'm so glad that we opted for this choice.

And this is the end result. So easy and fits PERFECT on top of the arm of my sectional. And look, my coffee IS RIGHT THERE FOR ME so my precious self doesn't have to lean forward! Ha!

I knew you would have questions about the kind of wood we used and the type of metal pieces and all of those details that MAKE MY EYES GLOSS OVER..... so I put Mr Magic on the spot and asked him to give you the details in a video.
