This vintage window coffee table will cost you about $100 or less, depending on how much you have to spend on your vintage window. I find vintage windows from $0 all the way to $45. Check the salvage yards and the alleys first to find the free windows. You can make this entire coffee table in one day, but don’t forget to factor in the drying time for paint.
Visit any high-end furniture store and you’ll see many designs inspired by nature. One great design is the use of birch logs to create a distinctive coffee table. These logs would have been sent to the chipper and turned into mulch, a fireplace or barbeque.
Don’t let the high price fool you. You can indeed make your own and save money. This article also lists a few alternatives so you can create your own style and look. Let your friends copy the stores- you do it your way.
To Make a Coffee Table Out of a Vintage window you will need:
1 Vintage Window (or a Vintage Door With Glass Panels)
Now, the first step is to measure your vintage window. I like to subtract one inch of the length and the width, so that when I build my coffee table base I have a lip hanging over the top of the table.
Now, cut your 2X4′s to build a box that is slightly smaller than the length and width of your vintage window.
Have your sheet of plywood cut to this same size.
Screw together the wood frame of 2X4′s. Attach the plywood sheet to the bottom of the frame you just built.
