School has started around here and with our 4 year old in PreK and our 1 year old daughter still taking a decent nap, my wife has had a little more free time… or as we like to call it garage time. She threw together this narrow side table that went perfectly in our living room. Now normally I write the plans and then we build, but this time things went a little backwards. She built, then I wrote. Hope you enjoy!

How to build a Cottage Style Narrow Side Table
Follow these free DIY plans to build a narrow cottage style side table that not only looks amazing but is very functional. No woodworking experience required.
The finish on this one was easy! Just 3 coats of Rust-Oluem Ocean Mist Spray Paint. I let the paint try completely in between coats and lightly sanded after each coat with 220 grit sand paper.
