This is the first DIY project that I mentioned from Pinterest. It was super easy to make as well. Probably easier than the wine rack because it didn’t require any wood cutting. The make up of this coffee table is crates found at Michaels and table feet found at Lowes. These crates are $13, but most Michael stores always have coupons for either a dollar amount or percentage off.
Without the coupons, the crates were actually more than I wanted to pay, but I was able to find a 40% off one item and 25% off total purchase coupon (visit their website or sign up to receive their emails). This is how much I spent on this project:
- 4 wooden crates from Michaels for $36.41 (after coupons)
- 4 Artesian Small Round Bun (table feet) – $11.12 (2.78 each)
- 4 Straight Top Plate (connects the table feet to the table) – $6.72 (1.68 each)
- 3 cans of black spray paint – $9.20
The project ended up being more than I anticipated. I after thinking about how functional it was, I was ok with spending $64 on a coffee table. Not only is it a coffee table, it also has storage. I would rather pay $64 than have to buy a coffee table and book shelf!
