The time of sofa and blanket is approaching and we want to show you an ideal complement for this fantastic leisure activity. A DIY side table that you can make with your own hands. That way you will not feel guilty when you are curled up on the couch, covered with the blanket and drinking your favorite drink while you enjoy a good movie.
Here is the sample, simple truth? Yes, and a lot, and thanks to the minimalist currents that dominate the current decoration we can make it in natural wood. It is convenient to give a couple of layers of varnish or sealant so that the wood does not stain with use.
As you can see it is made to measure so take the measurements that we give you as guidelines. You will have to measure your sofa and adjust the length of the slats to your specific needs. Equally the board can make it more or less large according to your personal taste.
Pine wood has been used but you can use any other type.
- 3 m pine wood slats
- wooden board 30 x 40 cm
- wood screws
- mounting tail
- saw and miter box
The board and base will be the same size, 30 x 40 cm. We will cut the slats to form frames at 45º using the miter box or a jigsaw. We glued and formed the frame. We will join with screws to get a better and more resistant fixation. Install the two vertical stringers and screw. Finally we will install the board and screw it to the stringers.
The structure may seem a bit flimsy but keep in mind that the board should rest on the arm of the sofa. With this we remove much of the load to the vertical pieces. It is therefore important to make the table tailored to your sofa.
