My wife wanted two tables for next to the front door and I saw no reason to pay $40 a piece for them so I built them. They are based on the look of the Tall Chloe Accent Tables from World Market. I used my best guess on the dimensions and built them out of 1×4 common boards from BORG. The stain is dark walnut with two coats of polyurethane. After Christmas (as they are now holding two 4’ Christmas trees) I plan to add a few more coats of polyurethane to help them shine a bit more.

Not including the finish and pocket screws that I already had it only cost around $15 per table to build.

They look great, like the long legs and the finish. Well done!

Those are nicely done and very practical.
