How can you easily build a folding table yourself?
Folding furniture is the perfect solution for small apartments. So much is clear already. What do you think of a folding table, you can build, which has a dual function – such as table and mirror in one. Unusual? With security. But also very original and multifunctional. So save much space and if the table is not used, you will have a great large mirror in the room. This idea has intrigued us. We hope you enjoy it as well. In particular, the design of the table offers understated simplicity and clean lines. As a DIY piece of furniture not only stylish looks, but it writes a well in almost any interior decor and fits any lifestyle. Chairs in the Scandinavian style and a few fresh splash of colour in pastel are the perfect addition.
Folding table yourself build made easy
Here comes the guide with pictures.
Adhesive tape for the mirror
Wood drill bits
Sand paper or wood grinder
Step 1: Draw a rectangle with the pencil
On one of the wooden boards, first draw a rectangle with the pencil. Between the outer edge and the sides of the rectangle, at least 10 cm should be free.
Step 2: Drill four holes wood drill bit
Then take the drill and drill ever a hole in each corner of the rectangle.
Step 3: Work with the jig saw
In this step, we recommend wearing workman’s gloves. With the help of the jigsaw cut out then the superior surface, as you start at the holes.
Step 4: Sand off with sand paper or wood grinder
Take sand paper or the wood-grinding machine to the hand and carefully soften the edges until they are beautifully smooth. This Board will serve as a table leg and mirror frame.
Step 5: Paint with acrylic paint and attach the fishing
Paint the wood frame, the second Board and the fishing with the acrylic paint of your choice and let this dry. If the parts are completely dry, connect the two parts of the table on the shorter side on the basis of the fishing. Use the electric drill.
Step 6: mirror fix and install
Now place the mirror on the flip side of the tabletop and secure his position with the masking tape. Attach the tape/adhesive tape on the back of the mirror to and including and install it on the desktop, on the already-fixed position. Press gently, but firmly. Then remove the masking tape. Get ready!
Step 7: attach the wall table top
Fix the table plate now with the mirror (is shown above) based on the metal fishing and of the wall drill on the wall. In this way, the table can be folded easily.
Step 8: L-hooks attach to the wall
Last but not least, you need to install only the L-hooks left and right of the folding table on the wall. This will secure the whole construction of the mirror option. That was BB´s!
Now, you have saved not only much precious space, but built also a cool mirror folding table yourself. Congratulations! You did it!
