Looking for a square side table? This one works great in the corner between two couches, or out in the open. A drawer provides a little additional storage and the shelf is great for books, decor, or a basket for even more storage!
If you're looking for the easiest DIY side table plans in the world, we've got you covered. Pop some hairpin legs on a wood round and you've got yourself a table in less than 5 minutes. I will recommend going the extra mile and sealing the top once you're finished.
Outdoor Side Table Plans
The beauty of DIY is that you can customize anything to fit your space. Find another side table you love, but need it outdoors? That's okay! Just finish it with an outdoor paint, stain, or sealer. Below we're sharing a few side table plans that were specifically made for outdoors, but you can always bring them inside as well. You do you!
This DIY side table has a concrete top that's great for areas with rain and snow. Instead of sitting on a wood top and accelerating wood rot, the concrete top takes the brunt of the weather. And don't worry--you don't have to pour any concrete. It's actually just a concrete paver that's been spray painted!
Okay, this isn't a standalone side table, but if you have a DIY porch swing bed or another piece of furniture with a 2x4 armrest, you can add this little side table! It has a spot for wine glasses or cups, and a small table area for some snacks.
