design sponge side table diy

Since I (Claire) successfully conquered my empty wall dilemma, I thought I’d keep the ball rolling by taking on the rest of the living room projects on my honey do list. My small space and large dog make it a challenge to squeeze in a coffee table, so I realized I needed some fab new side tables to flank my recently reupholstered sofa. As I began my hunt, research revealed so many options that indecisiveness quickly took over, so I need your help! I’d love to hear from all of you: Which of these end tables would you like to see me create? Pitch in your thoughts and ideas, and stay tuned for the reveal in two weeks!

    Wow. I really like number 1. I think this would look great in a room with lots of white accents!

  2. Sarah says:

    I love table 2 🙂

  3. Bridget says:

    Love number 2!! Please show us how this would be done. I have one final corner in my living room that could use an end table.

  4. Kate says:

    The first and second tables are my favorites. I can’t pick, though – they’re both great!

  11. Jenni says:

    I’m voting for number 3, as i have had too many snagged stockings from a rough wood sidetable in the past! Also, be very interested in how you could make the one at the top of the pictures which is unnumbered? Looks like a clean packing crate which has been repurposed? Jen

  12. Natasha says:

    Number 1…PLEASE!!!!

  13. Megan says:

    2 or 4 – both are SO cool!!

  21. Kristin says:

    The first one. While they all have various aesthetic appeals, it seems like the first one is the most functional, which is something you have to consider in a small space.

  22. Amanda says:

    #2 please! 🙂

  23. Katie says:

    Number 4!!!!!
