Running really behind on day #3, so something quick.
As you can see, our living room is dominated by the bf’s large L-shaped couch. To add some table room without eating up a lot of floor space, I made a sofa ledge to go behind the couch. It adds 10ft of ledge, but only takes up six inches of the room. 🙂
After measuring the sofa, length along the wall & height, I headed to the home repair store. For about $25 I bought two 10ft 2×6’s of the cheap stuff, stain, & some L-brackets. I had one of the boards cut to four 30in legs.
At home I stained the wood, then added my legs using the L-brackets. I used two L-brackets on each side of the legs, except I didn’t use them on the outside ends. That method did leave it a little wobbly, but since it was wedged between the sofa & the wall it’s not an issue. A side bonus is the space between the legs left some storage space for narrow things that aren’t used often. Maybe you have a paperback collection you can’t part with? The guitar you’re going to learn to play someday? The rackets from the tennis class you took a couple of years ago & haven’t used since, but this summer you really are going to start playing again? (I swear none of those are examples from my own life.)
I took a few pics along the way, so here they are.
