Tryde Side Table

A few weeks ago I came across Ana from Knock Off Wood. She is amazing. I instantly got the building bug.

Today while my kiddos were mostly napping I made a table. It is not perfect and it is really out of square but for a first timer I think it is great. It cost me under $20 to build. I still need to sand it and paint it. It is for my living room between my couches. Right now I currently have a plant there and piles of stuff. So hopefully it will look a little nicer when I have it all done. I will give a before and after of the space in upcoming posts. I am going to paint it black, rough up the edges a bit and polyurethane it. Will be so happy when it is all done. Pretty easy for beginners like me.

Ana is great because she gives you free plans to build knock off designer furniture. Check her out, if you haven't already.


  1. You did a great job! Can't wait to see it painted :)

    Thanks for linking at Lucky Star Lane!

  2. I LOVE Knock Off Wood! I have several pages bookmarked for future projects--it's great that you actually DID one!
