DIY end table plans allow for much creativity and flexibility when it comes to putting together your own home decor accessories. If you have ever wanted to create a focal point piece in a certain room, such as a family room, living room, dining area, or even the kitchen, you may be able to accomplish this task with the right plan and some helpful advice. Here are some tips that will help you create a beautiful end table that fits with any style of room in your home.
The first step in creating a diy end table is to get your measurements right. Start by measuring the width, height, and length of your table. Marking the places where the screws or nails will go is also important. These will be the sides that will hold the glass in place once it is drilled. Once you have marked all the important places, remove all the old hardware and scuff the tabletop with a hammer.
Once the tabletop has been all scuffed and painted, it is time to make sure that the holes are drilled all the way through. This is important to make sure that your new piece of furniture will fit in the hole. Using a screwdriver tip and wood shims, check to make sure the screw is seated all the way through. If not, replace the screw and shims.
Next, you will need to measure and cut your pieces of wood that will make up your day end tables. Make sure to leave at least five inches between any two pieces that you are cutting. This will allow for expansion if need be. The next thing you need to do is make sure all the sides and corners are square. Once the corners and sides are square, glue the wood together with wood glue.
Using a staple gun, anchor the two pieces of wood together and secure them in place. You will need to have two pieces of wooden top for this step. Buy a stapler or use a hot glue gun to anchor each side of your day end table to the wooden top.
After all of the little details are taken care of, you can start to piece your laptop stand onto the two wood planks. Use a measuring tape to get the exact dimensions for your laptop stand and make sure you write those measurements down on the piece of paper. This will help you be sure that you get the exact correct measurements and also so you will know how much you need to buy. Also take note that you will need to use some screws to hold the wood plank in place. Once you have the laptop stand securely in place, cut off three more inches on the side so that you will have enough room to open your laptop bag and insert your mouse and any other necessary accessories.
Attach the laptop to its own wood tray using a screw driver. Using some caulking, fill in any large gaps around the edges of the table. You will want to make sure that your new table has a flat surface so that you do not accidentally bump into anything when you are using your laptop. Now attach the wood board with its corners snapped at the edges. Use wood glue to stick the mouse into the grooves provided and then you are done with your brand new DIY end tables.
Enjoy your new ergonomic desk. If you are looking for a way to save some money on one of these, there are plenty of used diy end tables out there at auctions and over the Internet. But be careful when shopping online as you do not want to make a mistake when it comes to the quality of the furniture. Always inspect the furniture for any wear and tear before paying for it. So be patient, take your time, and you will find the perfect new end table to enjoy your life.
