DIY Skinny Table

In our living room, behind our gray sofa we needed a skinny table. Somewhere to place our coffee cup while we sat on the couch, a place for other little this and that's. Our sofa is lower and longer than standard making the pickings a bit slim. Plus with our dinning table being in close proximity we didn't want a very wide table.. making pickings even slimmer. Pinterest was full of great projects.. to get the idea ball rolling.

I lost most of the progress pictures when my computer crashed but the idea was simple.. two planks of wood, one for the top and one cut to size to make two legs. And we bought a set of decorative brackets to make it pretty and a step above basic. We ended up adding a second plank of wood for added stability.


a little wood filler and some sanding and then we needed to decide what color to paint it.. we swayed between a bright yellow to a navy blue..


We decided to go with a beautiful deep midnight blue..  we picked the shade from the blue in the rug and the throw pillows and it all tied in perfectly.

How did you paint it? Did you use a spray?
