DIY Sofa Table

After Christmas it seems like I go into a construction mode and this year I decided that I wanted a table behind the sofa in the family room.     I have had several styles of sofa tables over the years,  but they have all disappeared for some and grands needing them for their new!

I Googled sofa tables and found a very simple tutorial for one on Hometalk and you'll find a link to their page at the end of my post.

I really liked the natural wood look so I decided not to paint or stain my sofa table

The sofa table gave me the option of adding little vignettes to the existing pictures above the sofa.  

H used 2 x 12 to construct my sofa table,   but you could use andy size material that works for your area.    Here's a link to the simple tutorial that Hometalk provides.........

I think next year I should dig out my lit Christmas houses and display them on my sofa table....don't you?    But for now,   I'm thinking ahead to spring,  Easter,  summer, and fall.    How will I decorate my sofa table head is full of idea's!
