Make Your Own Side Table on Wheels

Make Your Own Side Table on Wheels

Here’s a genius idea: a table on a platform and wheels. Remodelista editor Sarah spotted this one in the studio of Brooklyn-based designer Lotta Jansdotter, featured on Design Sponge. Read on for sources to make your own.

Above: Once you’ve assembled your table, use Benjamin Moore’s 02 Super White for a uniform look.

Above:  Order a piece of plywood from your local lumber yard based on the exact dimensions of the table (to make a thicker base, order two pieces of plywood and glue together by covering one side with Elmer’s glue and nailing a second sheet on top). Photograph by Kitchen Resource Direct.

I believe plywood has harmful chemicals in it.

I made two cubes out of plywood scraps. Each cost me $10 in plywood scraps, $12 in sand paper and paint, and $14 for the wheels. $72 for two night tables seems cheap enough.
