This beauty was my first dive into building concrete tables, and it definitely sparked a passion!
I poured this particular top as a 2 ft by 4 ft to maximize the usable space in our small living room without cutting into the walking areas. Our family is big on game nights and Netflix dinners, so a big coffee table makes a big difference!
I just love the marbling effect I was able to achieve on the surface! Plus the food-grade sealer really helps it pop!
I wanted a simple yet sturdy base to rest the beautiful concrete top on, so I chose a hardy 4×4 for the legs and 2×4 timbers for the sides. I carefully cut and sanded down each piece and joined them with discrete pocket holes prior to applying an espresso poly stain for ultimate protection and durability.
With a 500lb-rated bearing roller set into the base of each leg we are able to move the table around with ease while maintaining a clean, safe, and low-to-the-ground aesthetic.
