30 Easy DIY Farmhouse Coffee Table Projects with Free Plans

This post contains affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

Get inspiration and plans for how to build your very own DIY farmhouse coffee table in this extensive list of projects ideas! All of these easy tutorials with free plans are step-by-step instructions for making a fabulous coffee table for a fraction of the cost of buying one!


Coffee tables are a fantastic way to add style and function to a living room space. Not only can they be used as a place to display decor or set things down, but they can also often be used for storage and/or a place to put your feet up after a long day!

You may have learned this about me already, but one of my favorite hobbies is to make decor or furniture that looks like it came from designer stores like Pottery Barn or West Elm for a fraction of the cost.


Unfortunately, our current home is too small for a coffee table (we built a table for BEHIND the sofa – you can see that here) so rather than build design and build a table I don’t need, I’ve rounded up 30 fantastic other bloggers’ projects so you can find the perfect tutorial for your space!

I may someday decide to build a DIY farmhouse coffee table for a friend or family member, but until then, I’m spreading the love by sharing my peers’ ideas.

No matter what style of farmhouse you have (modern, rustic, vintage) you should be able to find a coffee table that’s perfect for your room. I’ve even thrown in a few fun ones like a trunk table and puzzle-hiding table!

I hope this round up of DIY farmhouse tables with free plans helps you discover the perfect project for you to tackle for your space! Don’t be afraid to customize any of the ideas found below – I mean, that’s the beauty of DIY, is it not? 😉
