6 Out Of This World DIY Coffee Table Ideas You Could Make On Your Own!
This past fall, I built a desk for my office. Not because I can’t afford one, but because I wanted to build one that everything in it that I felt that I needed. I got that from my father I suppose. He was a master craftsman when it came to stuff like that. Anyway, I made the thing and it’s honestly my favorite piece of furniture in my house.
Exept for the coffee table I am building. You see, when we moved in the builders left a bunch of really nice looking wood that I am in the process of building. If I could hook an electrical outlet up to the thing I would probably have a coffee pot actually built into it!
