How To Make a Scrap Wood Table

Relocating internationally from Germany to Canada meant I had to leave nearly all of my precious refurbished vintage furniture behind. Thankfully one of the perks to being an upcycling DIY diva is groovy ability to see the potential in the cast-offs of others and transform that trash into treasure to furnish my fab Canadian home!

One of the most fabulous refashionista perks that I’ve discovered about Toronto is garbage day. As householders are permitted to leave oversized items out for pick-up along with their trash and recycling each and every garbage day has the potential to be an amazing treasure finding adventure! Take a gander at what I whipped up with my latest trashy finds and discover how to make a scrap wood table for yourself!

I found 6 filthy furniture legs left by the side of the road on garbage day and after a good scrubbing and a bit of a sanding they were good as new! I added a couple of pieces of chopped up closet door and the basic ingredients for my table were ready!

I pre-drilled a hole for each leg in the four corners of the wood I wanted to use for the bottom part of the table.

Then screwed the legs into the holes with a bit of wood glue.

And the bottom of my little table was complete!

I had a heckuva time deciding just how to add the top of the table (or if I even wanted to) but then eventually decided to simply attach it with the remaining 2 legs using the same method as I did for the bottom. After a few coats spray paint my fancy little side table was ready for action!

The table is surprisingly sturdy and proves that with a wee bit of imagination and refashionista know-how trash can easily be transformed into useful treasure!
