Creating this DIY Floor Table is a breeze, especially when you enlist the help of your local home improvement store. They can do the major wood cutting for you, making the process even simpler. With a customizable design, you can whip up this dinner table in no time, leaving more room for you to focus on your full menu.

Materials and Tools Needed to Make a DIY Floor Table

To bring your DIY Floor Table to life, gather the following materials and tools:

  • 24" x 48" pre-cut and pre-sanded finished wood (plywood works well to keep costs down)
  • 18" x 2" x 12" wood (which can be cut to size at the store)
  • Wood stain and brush (we recommend Minwax Interior Stain in Ebony)
  • Arched brackets
  • Metallic gold spray paint (optional, for gold brackets)
  • Heavy-duty construction adhesive glue
  • Drill and screws
  • Ruler or measuring tape
  • Felt pads (for table legs)
  • Sandpaper (optional, for unfinished wood)
  • 4 right-angle 90 degree brackets with screws

Ensure that the wood edges are rounded to avoid any accidental scratches when people rest their legs underneath the table.

Let's dive into the step-by-step process of bringing your DIY Floor Table to life:

Step 1: Prep the wood by staining it with a wood stain of your choice. The polyurethane in the stain will make the wood water-resistant and easy to wipe clean.

Step 2 - DIY Low Floor Table Tutorial

Step 2: While the wood dries, spray paint the brackets gold, adding a touch of glamour to your DIY creation.

Step 3: Measure and mark where you want the legs to rest underneath the tabletop, considering the space needed for the brackets. In our case, we marked 10 inches from each end of the table and 3 inches on either side of each leg for centering.

Step 4 - DIY Low Floor Table Tutorial

Step 4: Measure 3 inches in from each end of the leg closest to the outside edge. This is where the brackets will be drilled in. Trace the entire leg in place, as you will need to remove it to apply the glue and then put it back in place.

Step 5 - DIY Low Floor Table Tutorial

Step 5: Apply a generous amount of liquid nails (construction adhesive glue) to one edge of the legs. Be careful not to use too much glue that it will overflow once pressed down onto the table. Let it set completely before installing the brackets.

Step 6 - DIY Low Floor Table Tutorial

Step 6: While waiting for the glue to set, attach felt pads to the bottom of the table legs for easy maneuvering once the project is complete.

Step 7: Once the glue has set, place the brackets on your measurement marks and screw them into the tabletop. This will make drilling into the legs easier.

Step 8: After securing all the brackets to the tabletop, place four 90 degree angle brackets on the opposite side of the legs, aligning them with the curved brackets. Screw the angle brackets in place.
