How to Make a Sofa Table

Like many of you, I like to create all over the house...especially in the living room when my husband and I watch a movie.
I was lacking some good lighting, so thought I would make a sofa table to put a lamp on.
I do many types of crafts and dabble in wood working as well :)

I made this back in 2016, but forgot to upload my video or a post on here it is ;)
I picked up 1"x10" knotty pine boards and got to cutting.
I measured my couch to get the length I wanted for the table top, which I cut as 5'
I cut 3 legs at 32" each, as this is a little lower than the height of our couch.

I used these brackets to attach the legs to the underside of the top.
It is so sturdy!!
My daughter was actually standing on it, and it didn't budge.

Here is a bird's eye view of the Sofa Table in place behind our couch.

I also attached a power bar on the side to keep my chargers and lamp plugged in.

It turned out perfectly as I like that you can't see it behind the couch.

We have since purchased a new couch since I have made it is behind our new couch :)

I made a video on how I put this Sofa Table together if you wanted to make your own :)
If you would rather watch it on my YouTube channel....just click the link "Tracy's Treasures 24"

  3. What a great idea & this would work in the living room ... "oh honey ..."

  4. Awesome Wood Project!! I like wood projects but I stick to mostly signs and words.. My sister has been doing tons of wood projects lately - She makes shelves, ladder shelves, trays in assorted sizes... ottomans, and more... It's fun to see the before's and afters of her projects! LOVE your table... very clever to hide it behind the couch... :)



Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
