DIY Rustic Industrial Coffee Table

Rustic Industrial Coffee Table

Hey all, thanks for stopping by Bitterroot DIY!

For more project ideas, you can find me on Pinterest. And to stay up to date with the latest shenanigans, follow me on Instagram.

I have to be honest here: When I first made the lid for my blanket chest, I messed up the dimensions and it ended up a little small. But it was already finished and perfect and wonderful before I discovered the mistake … oops …

So I attached it to the chest anyways and just moved on with my life ……

DIY Storage Chest

Ever since we moved into our townhouse, we’ve been slowly adding to our furniture collection. One of the biggest necessities has been more storage space. In the living room, we’ve been just piling nicely folding blankets and leaving them out on the couch. It works, but we were ready for a more organized space. So I decided to make the blankets their very own home – the DIY storage chest.

Finally a place for all that fluffy blanket goodness!…

Crate Shelves

When we first moved into our townhouse, we decided to put a little movie-watching relaxation station in the upstairs of the house. There was this perfect inset that fit a loveseat opposite a nice wall which we could mount the TV on. We’re not big TV people and wanted to keep the downstairs family room more of a gathering place rather than have it overrun with a TV. So putting everything upstairs worked great! However, the downstairs family room area had a cove cut into the wall specifically for a TV. It took me quite a while to figure out what to do with this space, but I eventually decided to put together some super simple shelving. Here’s a quick project if you want to add a little spice…or space…to a room!…

Farmhouse Coffee Table

The coffee table…this is where it all started. If  you haven’t stopped by my about page yet, I go into a little more detail there about why I decided to build this table in the first place. If you’re interested, take a gander over there for a minute to get more of the back story. If you’re ready to read the super cursory rendition of how the whole project went down…keep scrolling……
