There is nothing I LOVE more than to give an old treasure new purpose!

And when I can do it without spending a lot of $$-well, THAT my friends, makes me over the moon happy!

Creative Coffee Tables-UpcycledFor the past couple of weeks, hubby and I have been searching for ‘just the right’ coffee table for our living room.

Hubby wanted something simple- and of course, I wanted something with a bit of the farmhouse style that I love!

With all the choices out there-that may seem like a SUPER easy task, but it wasn’t.

Every time we found a table we could both love-the price tag was always WAY out of our budget.

6 Creative DIY Coffee Tables

Although working with a slim budget can be very frustrating at times, I think it CAN also be a blessing.

It forces you to ‘think out of the box’-which is truly what up-cycling is all about!

Today I’m sharing 6-of my FAVORITE DIY up-cycled coffee tables!

Each one is OH SO creative-and they all truly inspired me to ‘create’ our own -unique coffee table!

  1. I LOVE the Milk Can but I’m not sure how practical it is, maybe with a smaller top it would make a better nightstand or end table. I have a rusted one outside but I know my husband would never go for it. Next would be the crates on wheels. But go to my blog under projects in home because there’s a gray box that you might like and you could adjust it to your liking.

    1. I love the milk can too, Carole, but Donna’ saw horse definitely pulls on my heart strings! I’ll be sure to check out your gray box! Thanks!!

  2. I’ve got to say the upcycled trunk. So many storage possibilities there. I, too, am on the prowl (and on a budget) looking for coffee tables and end tables. Trying to get my mind wrapped around what I really like best has been the challenge. Your post is so inspiring though. Thanks for the nudge! ?

    1. Thank you so much! It truly is a challenge, Karen! I LOVE the storage factor on the trunk too! There are so many options out there, and I’m glad the ones I chose inspired you! I can’t wait to FINALLY share my coffee table! Be sure to stop back Friday for the reveal!
