I’ve been looking for a table for the awkward space between my sofa and loveseat for a while now. I could never find anything that I liked, that was the right size and in my price range. Then I discovered Ana at Knock Off Wood. If you haven’t discovered Ana yet, go check her out. She has free plans for all sorts of wood furniture. Want something you’ve seen in the latest PB catalog? Ana just might have it. In love with some furniture from West Elm or Crate and Barrel? Better check with Ana before you buy.
Here is what I made:
Come a little closer…
I used Ana’s plans for the Knock Off Pottery Barn Hyde side table. I’m very pleased with how it turned out and happy to report that I made it ALL by myself! The wood for this project cost less than $20.
I modified the size of the table in Ana’s plans and made mine 28 inches by 35 inches so it would fit perfectly between my couch and loveseat. I followed Ana’s instructions with the exception that I used a pneumatic nailer for most the construction, using wood screws at a couple of key places.
Because I made it from pine, I used Minwax Wood Conditioner before staining it with Minwax Dark Walnut Stain.
Then I finished it off with two coats of Minwax Wipe-On Poly. (I love this stuff – so easy to apply.)
It’s really a nice addition to my family room. Thanks Ana!
