An Industrial Coffee Table on Casters
Hey there! If you’re looking for a budget-friendly project, we’ve got just the thing for you. Our DIY plans for the Westport Coffee Table are super easy to follow and require only off-the-shelf boards. This means you won’t have to break the bank to build it!
The design includes frames at the ends and center, with angled pieces in the middle, giving it a unique look. It also features a planked top and bottom, and to make it even more convenient, we’ve added casters.
The best part? You can have this awesome coffee table ready in just a few hours! Imagine the satisfaction of completing a beautiful piece of furniture in such a short time.
And here’s a suggestion: why not go for a grey weathered finish? It would add a touch of rustic charm to your living space. So go ahead and give it a try – we’re sure you’ll love the end result!
