Size: So that your coffee table is accessible to everyone sitting on your sofa the length should be about 2/3 of the length of your sofa. Since our sofa is 72″ long, our coffee table needed to be 48″ long. As for the width of the coffee table, you want to allow about 16″ between your coffee table and any seating that you have around it for leg room. Our living room is set up so that we have a sofa facing two chairs across from it. I measured the space between the chairs and the sofa and subtracted 16″ for each side of the coffee table facing the furniture (32″ in total) which gave me about 20″. So, by doing all of this wonderful math I decided that our coffee table should be about 48″ x 20″. This is just a guide to go by, you can give or take a few inches.

Surprisingly, 2 years later, that table is still with us. I really love the size of it, and its plain white finish just seemed to work with all our furniture. What I wasn’t loving was the “Ikea-ness” of it. Drawing inspiration from our sleek walnut credenza and hand-me-down vintage Eames chair (best hand-me-down EVER), I decided to give our table a mid-century modern makeover on the cheap. All I needed was a pair of signature tapered legs…so to Etsy and eBay I went. I ended up buying this set for a total of $35, if any of you are curious. Once they arrived, all I did was remove the Ikea legs and screw those mid-century babies in and voila! Old table, new look.

In many people’s minds (although I know some of you disagree), one of the main reasons for a coffee table’s existence is to have a place to kick up one’s feet after a long, hard day. So why not make it padded and comfortable…. like, say, an ottoman? Not So Newlywed McGees created a beautiful tufted coffee table ottoman by upgrading an old coffee table with some foam, batting, gorgeous printed fabric, nail head trim, and a lot of love.

Since our recent move from Sacramento to Petaluma forced Drew and I to downsize we sold the majority of our larger pieces of furniture at a garage sale. This made for a much easier move and allowed us to choose new pieces that fit perfectly in our new space. We had a pretty easy time finding affordable, smaller scale furniture, but when it came to our coffee table we just couldn’t agree on a style, or what we did agree on was way out of our price range. Since I have a tendency to respond to everything Drew says he likes with an “I bet we could make that” I decided to actually follow through on that statement and make us a coffee table. It was the best option for us because I was able to make it in the exact style we were looking for and it only cost about $150, which is a fraction of the price of some of the coffee tables we were looking at purchasing.
