Simple Mid Century Style Accent Table

You guys!! Hello!!! I feel like it’s been forever!! Moving is no joke, haha. These past several weeks have been a complete whirlwind. It feels good that things are finally settling down. I’ve heard from so man people all the work that goes into moving but, I don’t think you ever fully understand until you experience it for yourself. This was my first big move as an adult. When I got married I didn’t really have a whole lot to move and my husband already owned our old house so I settled in quite easily. But moving an entire family is a whole other ballgame. Of course one never knows what the future holds but if it were up to me, I hope that that was our one big move for a very long time.

Since we are mostly unpacked, besides the basement storage area which needs some organizing I am happy to report we are going to start some renovations soon.

Unfortunately there are some not so exciting things that need our attention and money first, like replacing the oven and reconfiguring oven placement, removing drawers to install said oven as well as making cabinet doors to cover where the old oven use to be. Also, re-insulating the attic and replacing the windows. Most of the more cosmetic extras will need to be put on hold until we can save up with money.

Since the oven needs to be replaced we have decided to do a little bit of work in the kitchen which is actually a little exciting because I’ll be getting my subway tile a lot sooner than I expected, haha. But that’s about as exciting as that’s getting for now.

Thankfully though, there are a couple simple DIY projects in the works such as installing some shelves, removing wall paper, patching and painting and some furniture building. Which brings me to today’s post. I wanted to share my super simple mid century inspired accent table. This was so easy and relatively inexpensive and I’m really excited about the end result!

Here are the items I used for this build.

Round Wood Top 

round board

24 inch hair pin legs

hairpin legs

Minwax Provincial stain

{screws and drill to attach legs}

All I did was sand my wood top a little bit to smooth out the edges. Stained it and then attached my legs with some screws. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. Here is the finished product

Here is the unfinished top setting on a step ladder while I waited for the legs to be delivered, haha.

I’d love to hear what y’all think!! Feel free to leave me some comments below!! Hopefully the next time you hear from me it won’t be an entire month later 😉
