My husband and I recently moved and I feel like I have this never-ending list of furniture to purchase for this house. Problem is, we are renting and don’t want to fork out a lot of money for furniture that may not fit or go in our next home. That’s why we have been busy building a lot of things that we want in this house for CHEAP. This DIY entry table takes care of our needs now and I don’t feel bad if it doesn’t belong in future houses.
I made this gallery wall in our entryway of pictures from our travels but the wall still looked so bare. I’m so glad I was able to make this table just the size needed to fill the space.
The dimensions for this table are 48″x12″x31″. We purchased the wood for this table for a whopping 17$! That includes 1 1×12 and 4 2x2s. So simple!

– 48″ 1×12
– 4 8″ 2×2
– 3″ screws and drill
We didn’t have access to the table saw we used for our DIY Hexagon Shelves and Bookshelf Ledges but it wasn’t a problem! Home Depot made the cuts for us which made this project even simpler. They say they charge 1$ after two cuts but no one ever charged us so… it’s cheaper than buying a saw!
For this table, I used my favorite color, Kona, again and chose not to put a sealer on it for a more rustic look.
Then connect the rectangles with the 4 44″ pieces.
This is the frame of your table!
Next, secure the 48″ 1×12 to the top.
Sand all the pieces again to make all surfaces more even. Wipe down your table and stain.
I don’t think you’re going to find anything this size for 17$ at the store! This piece is very versatile and can be used in an entryway or behind the couch.
