Step 1:

You can stain or paint the boxes. I went with two different colors to go with the colors of my living room. I used spray paint for the boxes.

Step 2:

Step 3:

I stained the bottom piece even though you don't see much of it. You can spray paint it too.

Step 4:

Nailed the boxes to the bottom and then together. You can use a nail gun or just use small nails and hammer by hand but carefully as the wood isn't the thickest wood.

Step 5:

We finally had a glass top cut to size for our finishing piece. Absolutely love this table. Great decor.

    Love this! Glass is expensive but plexiglass could work too. Did you put wheels on the bottom? That would be a nice addition.
