DIY Round Industrial Coffee Table

DIY Round Industrial Coffee Table | A Diamond in the Stuff

I have been in an industrial decor kind of mood lately apparently! I’m really loving the “industrial farmhouse” look right now so it’s inspiring a lot of what I’m working on. I just did a Makers Fair this past weekend and when my booth was all set up it reflected the mood I’ve been in. Which just so happened to make a pretty stunning booth if I do say so myself! One of the items in my booth was this fabulous Round Industrial Coffee Table. Want to see how I made it?

Thrifty Thursday Finds

It all started with this coffee table that I shared in a Thrifty Thursday post awhile ago. I ended up splitting the pedestal and the top into two separate projects because the original coffee table was attached in a jankey way. You can see what I did with the pedestal base HERE. As you can see in the original picture of the coffee table, the top was really unattractive. It looked beat up and not in a good way.

So I started the stripping and sanding process, which was quite the undertaking because it seems like there was globs of stain and clear coat on this thing. My plan was to sand all the way down to raw wood and then re-stain it. Well before that could happen I fell in love with it mid-makeover; I looked at the table top and it had a really neat naturally worn look to it. I stopped right there and decided that all it needed was a clear coat.

That took care of the top but now I needed a new base. Since I was in an industrial mood and I had just done another project with plumbing pipes, I decided to use them again. I made a Home Depot run and gathered up all the pipes, flanges, and end caps that I needed.

I really wanted the piping to be dark but they only had some of these items in the silver colored pipe. So I gathered up the pieces I needed and then planned to paint them. I first put the base together, then I used a primer especially for metal. Lastly I used some matte black spray paint and topped it off with a spray clear coat. It was super easy to attach the new pipe base to the wood top, just use some screws through the flanges.

The wood is imperfect and has many flaws…..but I think that’s what gives it so much personality. I love the look of the worn away stain, I don’t think I could of planned it any better!

It made a really awesome meeting of two different styles that somehow works.

  2. Hi, what is the height of the table?

    Have to agree with you, table top is perfect as it is, can’t ignore that lovely worn look. Wouldn’t mind having table myself but would be too big for our living room which is small . Are you going to keep table or sell her? Would be hard to let her go with incredible top and base which is outstanding also, painting pipes was great idea. That table speaks to me.

    Wishing you wonderful Fall week

    • I am selling! Sometimes it is so hard to let go of my creations, but if I kept everything that I fell in love with my home would be wall to wall furniture and decor! LOL Thanks so much for stopping by and your very kind words!!!

  4. Hi! what size pipes did you use? Thanks!
