Easy DIY Side Table with Magazine Rack
Learn how to make this easy, stylish side table. I used a magazine rack as the base and added a painted pine board table top.
When I started thinking about this project, I knew I wanted something easy. It’s spring cleaning time, and the grass is growing and needs mowing. Also, I was away from home and the blog for a while, visiting my sister who is recovering from a medical situation. And of course, my husband and kids always need tending to. So I needed an easy project. In fact, I like the idea of easy projects so much that I’m making a new category called “Easy.” These will be projects that can be done fairly quickly and involve mainly painting/staining (as options to your taste) and assembling by screwing or hammering things together.
The Side Table with Magazine Rack project has three parts:
- Choose and prepare the table top
- Choose and prepare the magazine rack
- Attach the table top to the magazine rack
