Give Your Living Room Some Summer Style With This DIY Birch-Log Coffee Table
Good news. Spring is officially here, and summer isn't far behind. Before we know it, pools will be packed, flip flops will be a go-to choice, and the smell of barbecue will fill the evening air.
That means it's the perfect time to get to those DIY projects you've been mulling over all winter. If you're a bona fide DIY-er, that list may be extensive - make some room. For the casual home-brewer that knows a thing or two about a thing or two, but hates complicated directions, try this simple project on for size. Experienced or not, this birch-log coffee table is almost too easy to make.
You'll need plywood, birch logs, wood glue, and sanded grout.
A proportionate lip should be created around the outer edge.
Make sure you map out your spacing to avoid ending up with an awkward empty space too small for another log.
Be sure to use wood thin enough for the logs to still stand higher than the box.
Try to line them up with the birch logs around the baseboard for a clean, symmetrical look.Â
Make sure to smooth it out with a grout float too.
If you want to make your table even more portable, install some wheels instead.
