DIY industrial side table

Side tables are very practical and functional. They are useful everywhere in the house and they are usually simple. There are many different designs, shapes and sizes when it comes to side tables but some of the most interesting such pieces are the industrial ones. Here’s how you can create a beautiful industrial side table by yourself.

It’s not nearly as difficult as it looks. You just need to gather all the materials and get to work. Start by trimming four 15’’ legs and eight 18’’ rails from the L angles. They’re not difficult to find. The process might take time but the rest gets simpler. After you’re done with that, use painter’s tape to mark the places where you’ll cut. After you do that, file the ends smooth.

Now that these pieces are ready, start by connecting a 15’’ leg to two 18’’ rails. You should be able to create a table corner. Continue connecting the rest of the rails and legs until you have assembled them all. Secure them in place. Next, cut a piece of plywood with the dimensions of 18½”×18½”.

This will be the top. You can sand it or paint it. Attach it to the base with screws. Now you’re done. You have a lovely side table with a simple but appealing industrial look. It’s going to be very useful and, because of its design, it’s also quite versatile. You can adapt and change the design and you can also add your personal twist.{found on lowescreativeideas}.
