A house is not a home unless it has something different. Memories are the ones that make the biggest difference but having a few items made by ourselves and perhaps the loved ones can truly make a place special. Sofas, wardrobes or even dining tables require more work and knowledge but an end table can be easily put together with materials that might be at our immediate disposal.
The expression “end table” comes from the 1850’s in America and represents a small table that is placed beside a chair or at the end of a sofa. It’s a project small enough so it doesn’t take much time to design and create but big enough to make a difference, just like a chair, a lamp or a coffee table. Wood is perhaps the easiest material to work with but go ahead and be creative.
See the potential in anything, add a little work and passion and you’ll end up with a unique home. We hope the examples in this article will improve your imagination and challenge you to make your one of a kind end table.

Or perhaps you painted one of the walls turquoise. No easier task than buying some paint and a brush and having some fun while creating something beautiful.
3. NOTHING SIMPLER THAN USING WHATEVER IS AT HAND
Stacking two wooden boxes on top of each might not seem such an intriguing idea at first but the picture speaks for itself.
