DIY Modern Entryway Table

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.
