Paint Stick Table Top Project
Do you have an end table that is the right size, but the tabletop is ugly and/or damaged? This brilliant DIY project uses stained wooden paint sticks (free where you buy paint!) to create a herringbone pattern. This simple end table is ideal if you want to give an end table an upgrade rather than replace it.

Reclaimed Wooden Spools
Another option for DIY furniture projects is converting large wooden spools (usually used for electrical wire) into end tables. These wooden spools are often available online after they’ve served their original purpose. We especially like this mobile table that functions as a bookshelf and table combined. Also, you can cut the spools in half for two smaller tables.

Affordable DIY Pallet End Table
If you can get your hands on a pallet or two, you can transform them into DIY pallet end tables (and so much more). You have to disassemble the pallets, cut the boards and then assembly takes just a couple of hours for some DIY rustic end tables.
