And the sad fact is, even in expensive shops it can be hard to find anything with any measure of personality at all, let alone a table that will fit in a small space. Creating your own furniture just requires a DIY spirit and a little bit of hard work. And if you are looking to buy a small kitchen or dining table, we’ve included a few for you to check out at the end of the post. We know that huge farmhouse tables are all over Pinterest right now, but when you have a small home, that just doesn’t cut it.
No problem, because we found some perfectly pretty DIY dining tables that are smaller in size and still easy to make. Some are just more diminutive in size, some are clever foldable dining tables, and a few are made for even those tiny little eating nooks with double duty furniture!
Check out these tutorials on how to build a dining table that works for your small space! Admittedly, this concrete and wood dining table looks like it would be best made by someone with a little DIY experience.
