This modern entryway table is a quick and inexpensive project almost anyone can do. If you have a drill and screws, you can do it. In one day.

This is what I hoped to accomplish. I envisioned a clean, simple entryway table that’s functional  and modern. (via pinterest)

I spent $21 on the boards. Three 1 x 2’s  and three 1 x 4’s. Home Depot cut the larger pieces for me. At home, I cut the smaller pieces to make two rectangles.

I drilled pilot holes and used wood glue. Pilot holes are necessary since this type of wood splinters easily.diy modern entryway table

Next, I glued together the pieces for the top.

After I sanded and smoothed the pieces with 80 grit sand paper, I painted the legs a semi gloss black (leftover paint).

I flipped the top upside down and attached the rectangles with three screws.

Next, I attached the two horizontal pieces to the bottom of the table. Same process: pilot holes, glue,  2 inch screws.

I sealed the top with two coats of General Finishes Satin Polyacrylic. This poly is fast drying, non-yellowing, and water based.

I like the dark and natural wood color contrast.

    1. Ahh thanks, Em. This table really is easy to make. Home Depot or Lowe’s can cut the wood for you. All you need is a drill and screws. You can do it!
