This month’s theme on Ryobi Nation is Hidden Gems and I have just the project in mind. I’ve been wanting to update my coffee table to the farmhouse style, but I need some hidden storage for remotes, art supplies and homework papers. The coffee table seems to be my kids’ focal point for playing and activities.

This farmhouse style coffee table is really easy to build. You’ll need:
- 6 – 1″ x 6″ x 8′ boards
- 1 – 4″ x 4″ x 8′ post
- 1 – 1″ x 2″ x 8′ board
- 2 – full overlay frameless euro hinges
- 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws
- 1 1/4″ brad nails
- wood glue
- paint/stain (I used the same weathered wood technique that I used on my farmhouse frames that you can see here.)
- The supplies for this table cost me about $60. (I had the paint, stain, wood glue, sandpaper on hand already.)
I used Euro hinges for the top lid. You can choose the soft close option if you’re worried about little fingers!
I teamed up with Ryobi Nation this month, and the tutorial and plans are available for free over on Ryobi Nation <– click for plans
Want to get that nice weathered wood finish on new pine?
