Step 1

Cut 24” x 3/4” poplar boards in half to form the tops with a miter saw. Sand away any rough spots and stain with color of choice. Walnut stain was used for this project.

Step 2

Cut legs for all three tiers. Note that the diagram below shows only the leg height; it does not show the supports underneath.

Step 3

Cut stabilizing frame pieces with 2×2” wood for underneath to support the three tops. Use the legs in corners as your guide for the length of the cuts and mark them with a sharpie. Cut four pieces for each tier. The first thing you’ll construct is the top tier. Using a clamp, secure the stabilizing support pieces to the stained top tier piece. Drill pilot holes and secure four legs to support pieces (A1 – A4) with 2-1/2” wood screws.

Drill pilot holes and secure four legs to support pieces (A1 – A4) with 2-1/2” wood screws.

Step 4

The supports for the medium and lowest tier look different underneath. Each one of these tiers has only two legs, so the support pieces attach to two of the legs of both this tier and the highest A tier.

Cut the same four pieces as you did for the top tier (just like A1-A4 above). However, one of the pieces for the B tier and C tier will act as a leg stabilizer and it will be attached to the top A tier. Notice the C1, C2, and C3 tiers attach to the stained board above and also its two legs. The unmarked support piece (the one that’s the same size as C2) will act as sheer to stabilize the tallest A tier and actually attach in between the legs of that tallest A tier.

Drill pilot holes before screwing tiers together. Assemble A first, then B then C, then attach B to A and C to A to complete the tiers.

Step 5

Patch the gaps created by the wood screws with spackling. Sand any residue when the spackling is dry. Tape off the top of the stained wood on the tallest tier to protect it, then spray paint base.

We have a #MadeWithArrow #TipOfTheDay, folks! When working with a pneumatic brad nailer like the PT18G, test the driving depth on a sample piece of wood before starting your project. If the nails are being driven in too far, decrease the air pressure; if they aren’t going in far enough, increase the air pressure. What’s your best tool tip? Comment below!

How many neutral decorative books does one need? Great question! Looking for a way to elevate your space? I’ve got the answer! Decorative books are a great option because they can be styled and re-styled in SO many spaces...SO many different ways. Perfect on shelves, tables, counters, desks, the possibilities are really endless. Yesterday on stories I shared how to make these but if you aren’t feeling crafty you can grab them on our website (link in bio), in our Etsy shop: henrocompany or on Amazon. Also, these would make a great housewarming, hostess or other gift! ______________________ #coffeetabledecor #coffeetablebook #coffeetable #coffeetablestyling #decorativebooks #bookdecor #shelfie #shelfstyling #diy #diybook #diycrafts #diycraft #crafting #craftingideas #craftingfun #madewitharrow #mycurrentdesignsituation #apartmenttherapy #finditstyleit #homestyle #makehomeyours #mydomaine #howwedwell #prettylittleinteriors #rusticfarmhouse #henrocompany #homeinspiration #homedecor #interiorstyling #modernfarmhouse
