Sofa DIY or Not?

We have a blank space behind our sofa right now and it would make sense to add a sofa table behind it.
Plus, it would give our room a little more division between the entryway and the family room.

I have seen many people in blogland make their sofa tables and it looks easy and fun and I definitely think I would enjoy building ours...but if I can find one at the local thrift store for under $20 or $15, I would buy it in a heartbeat!!

Other pluses to having a sofa table is that it will provide much needed storage for our family.
Who doesn't need more storage?

Kind of sad right now, right?

Ideally, I am looking to get a sofa table that is taller and wider and one that has storage space underneath. For now, this one is going to do until I find the one...or until I get the materials to make one.

I am digging this sofa table from IKEA. I think I could make one pretty similar to it...but I would stain it to a darker color.

I love this one from Lowe's! And the pull out drawer up top is great too! The price, not so much.

This sofa table is in a good price range all things considered, but I'm still not willing to pay that much for one.

Target always has cute furniture which is a great starting point for where I want to go with our sofa table.

Do you have storage behind your couch?
If so, what kind?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Same here due to the amount of toys cramping my living room I'm on the look out for a dresser. Hopefully we both have some luck shopping.
