since we just got back from a wonderful trip to savannah, (congratulations again grace and aaron!) this week’s project needed to be super easy and super quick—something we could crank out after working all day at the shoppe. looking around our apartment, we spotted a scrap piece of walnut that we had picked up at a neighbor’s sidewalk sale a few days before we left. we had no idea what we’d do with it, but we’ve learned to never say no to pretty lumber. a quick trip to the hardware store for legs and paint, and voila, we’ve got ourselves a lovely new coffee table.

here’s what you’ll need:
a piece of nice wood (ours was 16” x 38”)
4 screw-in table legs (ours were 16” early american style)
4 straight top plate hardware mounts
paint (we used a glossy yellow spray paint)
1. paint your table legs, putting 2-3 coats of paint on each leg.
2. mount the leg hardware 1.5” in from each side of the table, pre-drilling holes if necessary.
3. screw in the 4 legs.
