TV Box Coffee Table

With the onset of lockdown tier 2, I decided to spend my time working on this TV box coffee table project. I had the two key things required for this project lying around in my house so decided to make the best use of them.

For the base, I used an old 32 inch TV box and then used pallet wood pieces all around to give it a nice boxy look. The top of the coffee table was made with 2 patterns - chevrons and herringbone. All the pallet wood pieces were neatly cut and sized to shape and glued on to the face of the box. For the sides, I decided to contrast the pattern using vertical pallet wood pieces. For the legs, used hairpin legs from an old coffee table. The result - an amazing looking coffee table with a chic rustic look.
