A while back, I was trying to figure out what to do with this old table I had found. It was in poor condition and was missing a connector piece that fit between the legs. It wobbled terribly and I eventually just gave up on it and left it in the garage for another day.
Chance has a hard time understanding why I hoard old projects haha. I happened to have a small spool that I got from the local electric company and had an aha moment. I threw out the legs of the table and painted the top to match the spool and had myself a coffee table with some character.
I painted some subtle stripes on it for fun & we attached the top with two inch wood screws and that is it! This size coffee table fit our space here so much better than our larger coffee table. The lighter color was much less heavy in our living room, too. I used Valspar “Vanilla” for my white, I was going for a warmer white and didn’t want it to be stark white. I think if we were to stay here longer, I would have kept this little spool coffee table! We ended up giving it to some of our best friends here in New Bern who are having a baby! No corners to fall on here!
Now that it’s done, Chance is happy our garage is a little less cluttered. Sometimes it just takes a while for the ideas to come! What do you think about my little DIY spool coffee table? Let me know in the comments below! You can find me on Instagram or Pinterest, also!
