Project Panel How-To Project: Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table

Posted 11/30/2018 by The Dimensions™ DIY Team

In our last trend blog we talked about the unorthodox ways plywood is being used to build fabulous furniture. We showed you everything from kitchen tables to couches, benches to cabinets, and we still can't stop admiring its modern simplicity. 

This was our inspiration for putting together this easy, DIY, mid-century modern coffee table. It effortlessly creates the focal point we were looking for. And since the beginning of winter is perfect for spending more time on the couch, now we have lots of space to set our hot cocoa when we cozy in with friends and family. Love where you live!

This table will set your living room apart with clean lines and visible plies. Simply stunning in any room. And the bonus? More storage!
