What do you do when you can't find furniture in the dimensions you need? You build it! This charming farmhouse accent table measures 2 feet wide by 2 feet tall and is the perfect solution for all of those narrow spaces in your home. Use to store lovely hand towels and toiletries in a powder room or as a drop-zone for keys and phones in a small entryway. It's simple to make, inexpensive to build, and pretty to look at!
Tools Needed

Miter saw

Circular saw

(1-2) Bar clamps

Nail gun

Finishing nails

Hand sander and sanding paper

List of lumber materials can be found at the end of this post but your woods cuts are as follows:

Cut List

(1) 1x12 cut to 2' (table top)

(1) 1x12 cut to 19.25" and width ripped to 7" wide (bottom shelf)

(4) 2x2 cut to 24" (legs)

(4) 2x2 cut to 19.25" (front and back crossbars for bottom shelf)

(2) 2x2 cut to 7" (side crossbars for top of table)

(2) 1x2 cut to 7" (side crossbar for base of bottom shelf)
After you've completed all your cuts, it's time to assemble and nail your all your wood pieces together with your nail gun. We started with the sides of the table first and assembled from there.

Full project instructions can be found at the link at the end of this post!
After you've assembled your little table together, sand any rough edges, and then it's time to paint or stain it. I went with a two-tone look and am delighted with how it turned out! Please see link below for full instructions and more on this project!
