Umbrella Basket to Wood and Wire Accent Table

Heather of Twin Dragonfly Designs has found a lot to love in Target’s home décor section this season and says it would all look absolutely beautiful in her home. Now Target may be on the cheap side compared to Pottery Barn and friends, but that doesn’t mean you can’t DIY for less! Heather found an accent table with a wood top and wire base she loved, just not for $99. She was able to recreate it for only twelve dollars using a umbrella basket she simply flipped over and free cable spool ends from Home Depot. I love the way Heather thinks!

Stephanie of Simply Swider has been whipping her entryway into shape with an industrial chic makeover. A distressed wood and metal console table? Yes, please! A $695 price tag? Um, no… And why would you pay that much when you can build your own console from leftover butcher block and conduit piping – for under $50!

Elisha from Pneumatic Addict Furniture was recently inspired to build this industrial steel-frame coffee table using her newly-learned welding skills. Through DIY Elisha was able to save money and make some of her own changes, like using oversized casters, choosing a deeper shade of wood stain, and adding carriage bolts to the tabletop for interest. Elisha says this is her favorite furniture build to date, and I can most definitely see why!

Shawna from Dakota Creek Chic found an antique factory cart at a local antique store and knew she could build her own version of the Restoration Hardware table that was out of her budget at 1000 bucks. Shawna used Ana White’s plans as a rough guide but was fortunate to already have the cart (that happened to have awesome casters) to use as a base. Here’s what Shawna has to say about her third big project: “This was an easy build, taking only one afternoon to finish. It’s so worth it, and I just love how it turned out. Hope you love it too and hope this inspires you to tackle your own DIY project.”

Sarah worked her magic and now has a new table she loves!
