Whether it’s by choice or by necessity, going sans coffee table doesn’t have to be a reflection on your space’s limitations; rather, it’s a chance to get creative with the space and budget available to you. Embrace the macro-trend that is minimalism with any one of these space-conscious, DIY sofa tables.

A Rustic Sofa Table 

On the blog, when we talk about “space,” more often than not we’re talking about lack thereof. But what if you’ve got the opposite problem; too much space? For a spacious living area with not enough furniture to fill it, a rustic sofa table like this one can provide a stylish alternative to pushing your couch flush against a wall.

A Side Console 

For something that takes up even less space than the aforementioned two sofa tables, we appreciate the sleek design of this homemade sofa console. This DIY-er constructed his “new favorite piece of furniture” for a mere $30.00 – a fraction of the cost of its manufactured counterparts.

A Rolling End Table 

This simple, sturdy, and versatile “C table,” courtesy of Ana White, is so cleverly constructed, we can hardly believe it’s homemade! We love this DIY-er’s idea to paint it a vibrant shade of orange, taking it from supplementary to statement.
