Move Around the House: How to DIY a Coffee Table with Wheels

Coffee tables in any living room are a must. You use them to display seasonal decor, your favorite books, store the remote and serve appetizers.

Best of all, when you add wheels to the coffee table, you can roll it closer to the couch when the pizza arrives. Or move it next to your wall to make space for a karaoke stage.

Having a table on wheels makes going about your daily life so much easier. Read on for ways you can make your own coffee table with wheels without breaking the bank.

Pallet Coffee Tables DIY

A table with wheels is convenient to have in any living space. This is one of the easiest upcycling projects you can make. Here are some detailed instructions to learn how it’s done.

If you want to make it as easy as possible, use a full-sized pallet and get to work. Otherwise, you will have to use power tools to cut a pallet to size.

Start by sanding your pallet. Use a medium sandpaper first followed by a fine-grit sandpaper.

Then, stain or paint the pallet any color you want. Choose white for a shabby chic look. Or go for a dark stain for a rustic look.

Once, it’s dry, screw in a heavy duty caster to each of the corners. You can add a glass top to make your table on wheels a touch more glamorous.

You can also use crates nailed together on their sides to create a coffee table with display shelves all around. It’s a great spot to add baskets or display books.

Antique Trunk DIY Table

Here’s another excellent way to use old material to make something new. Keep your eyes peeled at antique shops and flea markets. Or raid your grandparents’ attic for any vintage trunks.

A sturdy trunk with years of character will make a great accent piece in your home. It goes perfectly with other thrifty ways to update your furniture.

For this DIY table with wheels, you’ll need four large caster wheels, nuts, bolts, washers, and a drill.

Place the trunk upside down and drill a hole in each corner. Push the bolt of the wheel through the holes and secure them in place with a washer and a nut from the inside of the trunk.

Flip it over and you’ve got a lovely antique centerpiece for your home. Display some books or a vase of flowers. Then roll it into the middle of the room to serve appetizers during your next get together.
